Immortalise Nzeribe In Abuja-Okorocha To FG

The Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District and former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Anayo Okorocha has called for the immortalisation of Arthur Nzeribe who died at the age of 84.

Okorocha stated this during a plenary on Tuesday, after he called for a one-minute silence which was observed by Senators.

The first republic politician and former lawmaker died on Sunday.

The news of his death was brought to the floor by Okorocha (APC, Imo West), following a point of order raised at plenary.

Rising on Order 42, Okorocha informed his colleagues of the death of the former lawmaker after a protracted illness.

He said that the late Nzeribe was an astute politician and philanthropist who was loved by his people in Oguta and beyond.

The lawmaker urged the Senate to push for the immortalisation of the deceased in the Federal Capital Territory.

In his remarks, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, urged young politicians to emulate the life of service of the deceased politician.

He said, “Arthur Nzeribe, played his part as a politician and legislator, and I knew him when I was a member of the House of Representatives and he was here in the Senate.

Our paths crossed several times, and surely the political space will have some vacuum, but we pray that younger politicians will grow to provide the kind of services that ordinarily would have been missed because of this monumental death.”
