The South-East National Vice Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Austin Umahi, has expressed shock at the death of the party’s Secretary of the Board of Trustee, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, describing it as a ”big blow to Africa and the PDP family”.

In his condolence message, he described the late former Minister of Foreign Affairs and Nigeria’s former High Commissioner to Canada as a quintessential leader, an embodiment of integrity, a symbol of true nationalism and pillar of democracy.

Umahi noted that Maduekwe’s death was a monumental loss to the PDP at this critical time that his advice, opinion and contributions were highly needed to reposition and strengthen the party for the task of reclaiming its lost mandate.
