Senator Zannah’s death a Double Blow to Senate- Sen. Ekweremadu

The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has expressed deep sadness over the death of the Senator representing Borno Central Senatorial District, late Senator Ahmed Zannah.

Senator Ekweremadu who was attending the 74th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Council of Ministers in Accra, Ghana when news of the sad event broke, said Senator Zannah’s death was a sad loss not only to the Senate, but also the nation.

The Deputy President of the Senate said: “Senator Zannah’s death, coming on the heels of the recent death of late Senator Uche Chukwumerije is indeed a double blow to the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He was a dedicated Senator who made his constituents and the entire nation the centerpiece of his legislative odyssey. He will be remembered for his patriotism, forthrightness, experience, and legislative excellence”.

Senator Ekweremadu prayed God to grant the Senate, the good people of Yobe State, and indeed the nation the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. He also prayed for the peaceful repose of the soul of the departed Senator.
