Senator Okechukwu Ezea who is the senator representing Enugu North Senatorial district in the National Assembly, has mourned the death of one of his predecessors, Senator Ayogu Eze, who passed on last week at the age of 66.

Eze was a two-term lawmaker in the National Assembly. In the 6th Senate, he was chairman of, the Senate Committee on Information and Media, and in the 7th Senate, he was chairman of, the Senate Committee on Works.

In a statement he signed which was made available to The Eastern Updates, Ezea described the late Senator Eze as a “special friend, a strong ally, a gifted writer, a skilled orator, a leader par excellence, a gadfly of the struggle for the creation of Adada state, and a worthy son of Igbo Nsukka.”

He went on; “Senator Eze and I shared many beliefs, political views and aspirations. At a time, we belonged to the same political party. But at all times we fought in the same trenches for the transformation of our zone, our state and our country.”
