Yolamchi Ukaga, Aba
The Abia state chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has described the death of Prestige Ossy, member, representing Aba North/Aba South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, as a big loss to Abia people and humanity in general.
Chief Augustine Ehiemere, Abia state chairman of APGA, while reacting to the sudden death of Ossy, through a telephone interview stated that the announcement of the death by his family came to the party with shock and unbelief.
According to him, it was painful and regrettable, for us to lose such a man. It is really painful. The party is in a very mournful mood.
“We regret that Ossy died at the peak of his career in life; we console the family, APGA family and the entire country. Although we are still expecting the family to give us official letter, notifying the party of his death”, he stated.
Ehiemere explained that Ossy was a human capital developer, a technocrat and a businessman, who ventured into politics.
He noted that under his tenure, as his constituency’s representative at the National Assembly, Ossy showed his constituents what dividends of democracy is.
The chairman observed that Ossy empowered people, worked on their roads to make them passable and torched the lives of widows and orphans.
He noted that now that Ossy has died, it would be difficult to get an Abia politician, who would do these things for his 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.
The family in a statement, signed by Chukwu Nnanna and George Ezikpe Okiyi, stated that Ossy fought gallantly to live for his people, but God decided to take him into rest in his bosom.
