Benue State chapter of the All Progressives Congress in Ukum Local Government Area of Benue State, has lost one of its local government chairmen, Tony Aboh.
This was contained in a statement issued and made available to newsmen in Makurdi on Sunday by the party caretaker publicity secretary, James Orgunga.
It was gathered that the Ukum APC Chairman died during a brief illness stressing that burial arrangement would soon be announced.
“He played a key role in fast-pacing the defection of notable Ukum sons and daughters to our party and setting a unity table that has strengthened APC in his area.
“His sudden demise came to us as a rude shock and a big blow, considering his strength of character and ability to mobilize people.
“While extending our deep condolences to his immediate family and the entire Ukum APC, we urge all our members to pray for the repose of his soul,” the statement said.
