The Anambra State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as shocking the news of the death of the Nnewi North Local Government Area chairman of the the party, Chief Oko Echendu.
The Publicity Secretary of PDP, Mr Nnamdi Nwangwu in a press release made available to journalists in Awka said that Chief Echendu was a dependable and reliable PDP faithful who carried out his responsibilities as party chairman in Nnewi North council area with diligence.
Nwangwu said that the Nnewichi-Nnewi born politician would be missed by the PDP family in Anambra State in particular and Nigeria in general.
PDP prays for the repose of the soul of Chief Oko Echendu even as the party condoles with the family of the departed human and material manager whose positive approach to issues would be greatly missed.
Nwangwu said with emphasis that the death of the Nnewi North Local Government Area chairman of PDP has indeed created a vacuum that would be difficult to fill.
