Financial controller dies few hours after assuming office


The preparation by Obun Ekanem, Political Editor of Nigerian Watch newspaper to host friends and relations as a mark of honour for his wife, who was recently elevated to the position of financial controller, Cross River State Agric Development Project (ADP), has suddenly turned into a funeral ceremony following the death of the woman.

The preparation by Obun Ekanem, Political Editor of Nigerian Watch newspaper to host friends and relations as a mark of honour for his wife, who was recently elevated to the position of financial controller, Cross River State Agric Development Project (ADP), has suddenly turned into a funeral ceremony following the death of the woman.


Daily Sun gathered that hours after Mrs. Rosemary Ekanem assumed office and was ushered into her office as the financial controller of CRADP, she died in a fatal motor accident involving NDDC 18-seater bus and a trailer, along Okurikang Calabar-Itu highway.


Mrs Ekanem was among members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), who were travelling to Port Harcourt, Rivers State for ICAN meeting.


Among those who died in the auto crash is the Cross River State treasurer, while other passengers, including the driver of the bus, survived with life threatening injuries.
The womanís husband told Daily Sun: "I am yet to come out of the nightmare, because it is a painful loss as she has left behind two children for me".


Shocked to the marrows, Ekanem said he had decided not to let his children know that their motherís dead. "I have been telling them that their mother traveled", he said.


However, the daughter, Roseline (9) appears to have suspected that something has gone wrong as she was said to have insisted that she wanted to speak with her mother on phone.
According to Ekanem, "Roseline has been insisting that I should give her the motherís phone number, so that she could call."


Having been promoted to the position of financial controller, Mrs Ekanem was said to be expecting another promotion to the office of director, Cross River State Ministry of Finance, as authorities of the state government confirmed that she was due for the position.


She graduated from the former Calabar Polytechnic in 1991, with Higher National Diploma (HND) and served the mandatory National Youths Service Corp (NYSC) in 1992 in Lagos State.
After the NYSC, she was inaugurated as member of ICAN in 2002 and bagged a masterís degree in Banking and Accounting from Imo State University in the same year.
