By Fidel Oseghale
The All Progressives Congress has received the news of the death of Imo North Senator, Benjamin Uwajumogu, with great shock and sadness.
This is contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu. The APC described the late Uwajumogu as an astute politician, fine lawmaker, social crusader, successful businessman, humanitarian and a philanthropist.
The former senator was said to have slumped in the toilet while taking his bath and rushed to a private hospital in Apo, Abuja where he died.
According to the statement, the former Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly was known for his commitment to the promotion of legislations to enhance good governance.
Issa-Onilu said the late 51-year-old was one of the frontline party leaders that worked assiduously to entrench the APC in the South East.
The party also extended its heartfelt condolences to his immediate family, constituents, National Assembly, particularly the Senate and the government and people of Imo State.
