Hon. Rotimi Amaechi and two-time Governor of defunct Bendel State, Dr. Samuel Ogbemudia have extolled the virtues of the Governor’s in-law.

Rt. Hon. Amaechi who led a delegation of Rivers State people on a condolence visit on Mrs. Uduaghan and her family, described Madam Rebecca Ayomike as a fulfilled   woman going by the successful disposition of her children.

Governor Amaechi noted that apart from the fact that she had trained up her children to the level that they can fend for themselves, Madam Rebecca Ayomike, he learnt was a devoted Christian who ensured that she impacted on all who came across her, adding that the good legacy she left behind would continue to speak for her.

“I believe that Mama had provided all that you need and all the necessary advice that you need to succeed. It is important to note that Mama died at old age and secondly because you are all old enough to take care of yourselves. But one thing I know you will miss is the close relationship and that Mother’s food that you would always want to eat each time you come from Asaba. No matter how best your sister or any other person can cook one thing remains that there is nothing like one’s mother’s food which is different from any other food.”
