The Senator representing lagos East Senatorial District, Senator Gbenga Ashafa has joined the rest of Nigerians in sympathizing with the family of Ewheridos over the abrupt demise of a friend, colleague and an ally, Sen. Pius Ewherido, on sunday.
According to a statement released by his Head of Media and Strategy, Mr Babatunde Adegunju, Ashafa said that he received the sudden demise with a heavy heart, saying that he still can not believe that within a twinkle of an eye such calamity can befall a true colleague.
The statement added " Just last week Sunday, Senator Pius Ewherido among other lawmakers at the National Assembly came to Lagos to commemorate with Our National Leader of Action Congress of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, over the death of his mother, hearing his untimely death is too shocking to bear.
"Sen. Ewherido was a true Nigeria, a soft spoken seasoned professional, an indefatigable soldier of democracy and a committed, magnanimous brother and motivator. The sudden and untimely loss of Senator Ewherido is too painful to comprehend by the entire National Assembly.
Senator Ewherido who clocked the golden age(50) on 4th of May 2013 was very vibrant at the senate floor when it comes to debates on national issues or matters, he was even my neighbour at the National Assembly office,lovable by his constituents and the whole of Delta State" He said.
Ashafa shares in the shock, agony, pain and bewilderment of all Nigerians and pray to Almighty God to give his immediate family and the good people of Delta State and Delta Central Senatorial District in particular, which he represented, the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. Amen!
