Senator Ayogu Eze of Enugu State is dead

Senator Ayogu Eze from Enugu State has been announced dead.

The Senator represented Enugu North Senatorial District in the National Assembly.

Eze, a former Senate spokesman, died in an Abuja hospital after a protracted illness.

According to report, the late Senator has been down, a situation that made him unable to attend his child’s wedding ceremony held earlier in the year in Lagos State.

He was a founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, before he defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, where he ran for the Enugu State governorship election.

In the Senate, he was appointed chairman of the Senate Committee on Information and Media, making him the official spokesman of the Senate in 2007.

After his reelection to the Senate in 2011, he was appointed chairman of the Committee on works.

Eze also served as a member of committees on Police Affairs, National Planning, Marine Transport, and Federal Character & Inter-Government Affairs.

In May last year, the Senate confirmed the appointment of Eze and five others as Federal Commissioners for the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, RMAFC.
