 Rivers Assembly to honour D’Tigress head coach, two others indigenes

The Rivers State House of Assembly has begun moves to honour three illustrious daughters of the state.

The 32-member legislature said the trio in their various endeavours did well by putting the state on a global stage.

This was the resolution of the lawmakers during plenary. They expressed their happiness with the exploits and exemplary conduct of Rena Wakama, Pallas Kunaiyi-Akpanah, and Kekwaru Ngozi Mary.

Rena Wakama, who hails from Okrika, is the Head Coach of Nigeria’s female basketball team (D’Tigress) that won the 2023 edition of the Afro Basketball Championship in Kigali, Rwanda, for which Pallas Kunaiyi-Akpanah was a player in the team.

On her part, Kunaiyi-Akpanah, a Nigerian Basket Ball Player who won Gold at the Afro Basket Ball Championship, hails from Kalabari.

Mary Kekwaru was the lady that returned the sum of $70,000 misplaced by a customer where she works at Eko Hotel and Suite. She hails from Rundele in the Emohua Local Government Area of the State.

This follows a motion presented on the floor of the House by the Deputy Leader, Linda Somiari-Stewart, who represents Okrika Constituency, urging the house to honour the three patriotic Rivers indigenes.
