Nigeria: Delta State Senator Pius Akpor Falls Down and Dies

June 30, 2013


THE Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Pius Ewherido, has died.

The one-time deputy speaker of Delta State House of Assembly re reportedly fell down three days ago and collapsed at his Abuja home and had been hospitalised at the National Hospital, Abuja in preparation for treatment in Germany when he suddenly died on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Delta State government has commiserated with his family over the loss.

In a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay, government advised Deltans, particularly members of his Constituency to remain calm.

“We pray that God grants his family, constituents and all of us, the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” it added.

I can’t believe people desire and occupy positions where they know they are not only useless, but actually wicked and actively murderous.
Do they not know they will certainly die? We all will die, soon, so soon if we only knew.
Don’t they see all those who have died? Why can’t they step aside and help facilitate those with the right skill-sets and consciences to take the steering wheel? To run Nigeria like a company and not like a colony.
