The demise of senator representing Imo North senatorial zone, Senator Benjamin Uwajumuogu, has been described as a shock by the All Progressive Congress, APC
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Issa Onilu, said in a statement in Abuja that “Many who crossed path with the late Senator described him as pleasant and accommodating. He was an astute politician, fine lawmaker, social crusader, successful businessman, humanitarian and a philanthropist.
“As former Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, the late Senator Uwajumogu was known for his commitment to the promotion of legislations to enhance good governance, particularly in the area of education, infrastructure and social amenities
“He was one of the frontline party leaders that worked assiduously to entrench the APC in the South East. He always made himself available to serve the Party whenever called upon.
“We extend our heartfelt condolences to his immediate family, constituents, National Assembly, particularly the Senate and the government and people of Imo State.
“We pray the Almighty God grants the late Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu eternal rest and also give us all the strength to bear this painful loss.”
