Yolamchi Ukaga, Aba
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state, has expressed deep sadness and profound grief over the death of Hon. Prestige Ossy, member, representing Aba North/Aba South Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives.
The governor, in a press statement signed by Onyebuchi Ememanka, his chief press secretary, described the death as shocking and extremely depressing.
According to him, the deceased was a passionate politician who saw his position as a call to the service of the people, noting that as a federal legislator, he was deeply committed to his job and provided solid representation to the people of Aba North/Aba South Federal Constituency.
He described Ossy as an accommodating politician who never allowed differences in political platforms and ideologies to come between him and any person.
“I enjoyed his consistent support as governor in my efforts in repositioning Aba and I feel a deep sense of personal loss at his death.”
The governor continued, “this unfortunate incident should act as reminder to all of us that life is ephemeral and must be lived with the understanding that death could knock on our doors at any time. This reality must guide every of our actions, especially for those of us in the political class”.
Governor Ikpeazu sent his deep condolences to the family of the late legislator, his party-the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), and the good people of Aba North/Aba South Federal Constituency.
Ossy, who until his death, was the leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, died in the wee hours of February 6, 2021, in Germany, where he was receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
