By Henry Umoru & Joseph Erunke
ABUJA- THE Senate has described the death of Senator Pius Ewherido, DPP, Delta Central as devastating and shocking.
In a statement by the Chairman, Senate Committee on Information, Media and Publicity, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe noted that Ewherido took ill at the weekend and was not able to make it, saying the Senate is heart broken and the incident, unfortunate.
Abaribe said, “Senator Ewherido was one of the most articulate, erudite, urbane and easy-going senators who brought his wealth of experience as a Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly to bear on the floor.”He was always concerned about his constituents and Nigeria as a whole”.
Abaribe said the Senate awaits further information but will sorely miss the Senator.
Ewherido died on Sunday evening at the National Hospital, Abuja where he was rushed to after an heart attack on Thursday.
