PDP Mourns National Woman Leader, Prof. Effah-Attoe…Says Her Death is a Devastating Loss to Nigeria

The National Working Committee (NWC) and indeed the entire Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) family is utterly devastated over the death of the National Woman Leader of our great party, Prof. Stella Effah-Attoe.

Our hearts bleed! Our party and nation have lost one of our best and brightest. Prof. Effah-Attoe’s death is a huge blow not only to her family but also to the PDP, the academic community, the people of Cross River State, and indeed the nation.

Prof. Effah-Attoe was brilliant, towering, and magnificent in all spheres, yet lived an exceptionally humble, pleasant, sociable, gracious, compassionate, and loving life. She touched lives in many positive ways and made pivotal contributions towards the growth and development of our Nation.

She was a dedicated teacher, politician, author, and fearless mobilizer who always stood for the truth, fought for justice, equity, and fairness, and gave her energy, passion, and resources in the pursuit of the rights of women in Nigeria.

Over the years, as Commissioner for Education and later Commissioner for Information and Culture in Cross River State, member of the Cross River State House of Assembly, member of the Governing Board of several Cross River State and Federal Government Agencies and Programmes, a university professor, and one of the most decorated scholars in Nigeria, she distinguished herself as an Amazon with extraordinary intellectual capacity for leadership and national service.

As the National Woman Leader of our great Party, she brought an uncommon intellectual aptitude into party administration, especially in mobilizing women for greater participation in politics and governance.

The PDP will always remember her tireless contributions alongside other PDP leaders in the effort to rebrand and strengthen our great party in the build-up to the 2023 general elections in line with the mission to rescue, rebuild, and redirect our nation from misrule.

Prof Effah-Attoe’s death has left a huge vacuum in our Party but we take solace in the fact that she lived a devout Christian life, triumphed in her chosen path, and left indelible marks in the service of the nation and humanity.

The PDP commiserates with her immediate family, the people of Ikun in Biase Local Government Area of Cross River State, the academic community, the Cross River State Chapter of the PDP, and the people of Cross River State.

Our Party prays to God to grant us all the fortitude to bear the loss; and to the faithful departed, an eternal rest in His bosom.
