The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has expressed deep sadness and very profound grief at the death of the Member representing Aba North/Aba South Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Late Hon. Ossy Prestige.
The Governor describes the death as shocking and extremely depressing.
According to the Governor, “Late Hon. Prestige was a very passionate politician who saw his position as a call to the service of the people. As a Federal Legislator, he was deeply committed to his job and provided solid representation to the people of Aba North/Aba South Federal Constituency. His death at a time like this when the rebuilding of Aba is on the front burner is very sad indeed”.
Governor Ikpeazu further describes Hon. Prestige as a very accommodating politician who never allowed differences in political platforms and ideologies to come between him and any person.
“I enjoyed his consistent support as Governor in my efforts in repositioning Aba and I feel a deep sense of personal loss at his death”.
Continuing, the Governor said, “this very unfortunate incident should act as a reminder to all of us that life is ephemeral and must be lived with the understanding that death could knock on our doors at any time. This reality must guide every of our actions, especially for those of us in the political class”.
Governor Ikpeazu sends his deep condolences to the family of the Late Honorable, his party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), and the good people of Aba North /Aba South Federal Constituency.
The Governor, on behalf of his family, the Government and People of Abia State prays the Almighty God to grant him eternal rest and console his family.
