For Late Pa Leonard Agom Jarigbe, father of Rt. Honorable Jarigbe Agom, it is a glorious final journey home as dignitaries from all walks of life gathered at St. Benedict cathedral Ogoja to bid him farewell at 90.
Members of both the State and National assembly as well as politicians from both major political divides turned out enmasse to identify with the humble and unassuming member of parliament in his moment of grief and to pay their last respects to Pa Jarigbe, himself a quintessential administrator in his days.
Here are some pictures of the days leading up to the requiem mass and the mass itself including the visit of the Speaker of the house of representative, Rt. Honorable Femi Gbajabiamila to Hon. Jarigbe Agom in his Abuja residence.
Late Pa Leonard Agom Jarigbe will be laid to rest in his hometown Ibil Ogoja on Thursday February 4 after a funeral mass at St Micheals catholic church Ibil.
Pa Jarigbe is survived by his wife, children and lots of relatives.
Various communities in Ogoja and beyond took turns during the week to condole with Hon Jarigbe who is adjudged a man of the people by his constituents.
