Default 1988 Carb. Honda Accord -Stalled No Spark

I have a 1988 Honda Accord Lx that stalled on the highway and will not start. Initially I suspected it was the fuel pump. Checked the line above the filter and did not have any fuel while attempting to turn the engine over. However, even when fuel was added to the carb we could not get it to fire. After further inspection discovered that I also did not have any spark.

I need to get this vehicle moving as soon as possible, so any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks you

Additional testing has found the ignition coil is fine, there is power to the coil, all of the fuses check out fine, the ignitor checks out fine and the voltage to it.... but zero spark coming from the coil.

Any suggestions for what to check next?
