This means that there will be one funeral service for the two brothers and it would be conducted by the Qua Iboe Church. This confirmation has been duly communicated by the Okopido Family to the Party.

To assist in the funeral arrangements, the Party has constituted a Burial Committee to work with the Okopido Family to give our Chairman and his brother, who was a former Minister of State, Ministry of Environment, a befitting burial.

The Chairman of the Burial Committee is Chief Inibehe Okorie. The Committee will be inaugurated tomorrow, Tuesday I7 November, 2020 at the party Secretariat, Uyo.

The Party will also open a condolence register at the Party Secretariat from today, Monday I6 November.
