A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Abia State, Chief Ndidi Okereke, is dead.
Okereke died early Monday morning, the Abia State chapter of the party announced.
The party, however, failed to disclose where and how Okereke died.
The Vice Chairman/Acting Publicity Secretary of the PDP in the state, Abraham Amah, said the state chairman of the party, Alwell Okere, mourns the loss of Okereke.
A statement issued by the party said,
“It is with a heavy heart that the Chairman of the Abia PDP Rt. Hon. Alwell Asiforo Okere on behalf of the Abia PDP regrets to announce the sudden death of one of its finest gentlemen and a former State Chairman of our Party, Chief Ndidi Okereke who passed on to eternity in the early hours of today, Monday, November 14, 2022.
“An accomplished Pharmacist, Chief Ndidi Okereke was considered a bridge between the Old and New Breed politicians and doubled as the Chairman of the Contact and Mobilization sub-Committee of the 2023 Abia PDP Campaign Council and the Party’s State Reconciliation Committee.
“He was a reliable, strong ally and a strategic partner of the State governor, Dr. Okezie Victor Ikpeazu who is shattered by the news of the sudden demise of the ever jovial Ndidi Okereke as he was fondly called by all.”
Following the loss, the Abia chapter of the PDP said the party secretariat would be closed on Tuesday “as a mark of respect for the deceased”.
