The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Association of Hospital and Administrative Pharmacists of Nigeria (AHAPN) is pained to announce the untimely death of our member, Pharm. Alochukwu Kenneth Ebede, a Chief Pharmacist at the Federal Teaching Hospital Abakiliki, Ebonyi State, on 5th July, 2020 from complications of COVID-19. He has since been buried. His death should serve as a reminder to all healthcare professionals including pharmacists that COVID-19 is real and we must of necessity make interventions to avoid contracting the virus and stay alive for our families, friends and loved ones. Wearing of PPE the right way, regular hand washing and observing social distancing among others should be a way of life with us going forward. May God comfort the family of Pharm. Ebede and grant his soul eternal rest. Adieu Ken. Dr. Kingsley Chiedu Amibor FPCPharm, National Chairman AHAPN
