DELTA STATE MINISTRY OF INFORMATION SUMMIT ROAD, ASABA
SENATOR EWHERIDO’S DEATH A RUDE SHOCK
On behalf of the Government and people of Delta State, we condole with the entire Deltans, especially the people of Delta Central Senatorial District, over the passing of Senator Pius Akpor Ewherido, a distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Before his election into the National Assembly in 2011, Senator Ewherido was a Deputy Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and also acted as Speaker.
A man of calm mien, Senator Ewherido distinguished himself as a lawmaker in Delta State, a record that won the admiration of his constituents who proceeded to elect him into the National Assembly. Even at the federal level, his youthful vigour and passion for the upliftment of the Niger Delta region defined his contributions to the National Assembly.
We pray to God to grant the late distinguished senator eternal rest and his family, friends and associates the fortitude to bear the loss.
Adieu, Distinguished Senator.
CHIKE C. OGEAH Esq
Honourable Commissioner for Information
