The death of Mrs. Juliet Ejiowhor , the Editor of The Tide Newspaper, based in Port-hacourt, is another reminder to everyone that life is short and brief irrespective of the perspective one may see it.
I belong to those who are particularly shocked over her death due to my short acquaintance with her during the recent NGE convention held in Kano when she was contesting the position of Treasurer.
She was one of the first few delegates who arrived at the Tahir Guest Palace, venue of the convention.
As we sat with other delegates at the reception of the Hotel, the late Juliet used the opportunity to share her campaign palm cards.
To ensure her commitment for the position she was contesting and win supporters, she quickly ordered for bottled water each for everyone sitting.
A homely, agile and cheerful Juliet subsequently engaged the indefatigable Umoru Ibrahim, who incidentally, was also sharing his campaign palm cards for the position of Standing Committee.
The exchange of pleasantries went on for a while before I and Umoru zoomed off to continue his campaigns.
Indeed, it was a remarkable established contact.
My condolences to the NGE and her immediate family.
May her soul rest in peace.
