President Goodluck Jonathan, Senate President, David Mark, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal were among the dignitaries that paid last respect to the late Judge of the Nigerian Court of Appeal, Justice Emmanuel Takon Ndoma Egba.

In a condolence message read by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Ayim, President Jonathan said the death of the Ndoma-Egba patriarch was a loss to the judiciary.

Jonathan said the late jurist left a legacy that made his children exemplified in their chosen careers after serving his country meritoriously.

On his part, the Senate President David mark described the late jurist as trail blazer who spent part of his years to serve the country and his people.

“It is remarkable to note that in the former Ikom/Ogoja axis of the then Cross River State, he was a pioneer teacher, civil servant and even the only lawyer for ten years and to cap his numerous feats, after serving his country as a judge of the Appeal Court, he devoted the later part of his years to serve the church.” He said.

The Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Rt Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, said the Nigerian judiciary has lost a legend and a fighter for good governance who believed in justice and equity in Nigeria.
