The Governor of Cross River State, Sen. Bassey Otu, and his Delta State counterpart, Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, and other dignitaries have bid farewell to a former Divisional Manager of the defunct Mercantile Bank, Lagos, late Obong  Ukpong Dan Umoh.

Otu, who worked under the supervision of the deceased at the defunct Mercantile Bank, described the late Umoh as a “perfect and humble gentleman” who dedicated quality time to service at the various positions he held at the bank including his private practice.

Reflecting, Otu said: “Painful as it is, we are however consoled by the fact that Obong Umoh lived a fulfilled life as exemplified by his numerous positive and very solid legacies on the sands of time as those he left behind are a clear testament of his hard work.”

The Presiding Prelate of African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, Bishop Uduak Effiong admonishing on “A good name,” said Christians should live a life worthy of emulation anywhere they find themselves as all shall give an account of themselves when the judge shall appear.

Drawing his sermon from the book of Ecclesiastes chapter 7 verse 1, inferred that: “the only way a good name could be attained is by exhibiting Christ-like characters, engaging in fruitful and soul lifting communications as well as living a life of Christ while on earth.”

The Cross River-born clergy seized the occasion to pray for a successful tenure of Sen. Otu and expressed the hope that his administration will usher in a ‘season of sweetness’ that will transform the socio-economic landscape of the State.

A biography of the deceased read by one of his children,   Ekomobong Ukpong Umoh described Late Umoh as an influential political and community builder who imparted the family, community, and the State positively.

The late Obong Ukpon was called yonder at the age of 83 (May 1939) and was born into the royal family of the Late Pastor Dan Umoh Umo Ekown of Udo-Nyung in Ikono Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom.
