SENATE NEWS: Senate Mourns Senator Ewherido…Says His Death Was Devastating
LEGISREPORTS NG: The Senate on Sunday said it was devastated by the sudden death of Senator Pius Ewherido.
A terse statement by the Senate Spokesman, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe said Ewherido who represents Delta Central Senatorial District, only took ill at the weekend and was not able to make it.
The Senate, Abaribe declared, is heart broken and devastated over this unfortunate incidence.
Senator Ewherido, he said, was one of the most articulate, erudite, urbane and easy-going senators who brought his wealth of experience as a Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly to bear on the floor.
“He was always concerned about his constituents and Nigeria as a whole”.
Abaribe said the Senate awaits further information but will sorely miss the Senator.
