Minister Uche Nnaji, Enugu APC Mourn Senator Ayogu Eze


The Honorable Minister of Innovation, Science and Technology, Chief Uche Nnaji and the Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have expressed shock and sadness over the passing of Senator Ayogu Eze, who represented Enugu North Senatorial District between 2007 to 2015.

During a condolence visit by the Minister to the family of late Senator Ayogu Eze, in his Abuja residence, Nnaji said Senator Ayogu’s transition “has undoubtedly left a huge void not only to our party, family, and friends but also to our beloved Enugu State which he committed decades of his years of service as a commissioner, Senator, Member of NPA, and Commissioner for Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission”.


He prayed God to grant eternal rest to the soul of the departed and fortitude to the mourners.

On his part, in a statement signed by the State Chairman of APC, Chief Ugochukwu Agballah and made available to journalists in Enugu, weekend, he noted that the news of the “tragic and sudden” passing of Senator Eze on April 25, struck members and leaders of the party with “pain and intense sadness”.

According to Agballah, “Senator Ayogu Eze was a Major stakeholder of the APC Enugu state. He was a journalist who worked with Newswatcth Magazine, Guardian Newspaper and also represented Enugu North Senatorial District between 2007 to 2015, under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


“Senator Ayogu Eze was the governorship candidate of our party, APC, in Enugu State in 2019.

“Until his demise Sen Ayogu Eze was the member representing Enugu State in the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission.”

The statement noted that Sen. Eze was also a Special Adviser to the former Governor of Old Enugu State, 1991-1993; served as a member of Transition to Civil Rule Committee in 1999 and later was appointed Commissioner for Commerce 1999-2007; as well as pioneer Enugu state secretary of PDP.

“APC Enugu state holds in reverence the nostalgic memory of Senator Ayogu Eze’s legacy of service.


“For eight years in the Senate, he was appointed chairman of the Senate Committee on Information and Media, making him the official spokesman of the Senate.

“For the eight years he spent in the Senate, he was a member of the Constitution Drafting and Amendment Committee that made some novel changes to Nigeria’s 1999 constitution.

“We, members of APC Enugu State share with the immediate family the grief and intense distress of this irreparable loss, as we pray for the repose of his gentle soul in the bosom of the Lord.” Ends
