Senator Annie Okonkwo is dead

By Ochogwu Sunday

Former lawmaker, Senator Clement Annie Okonkwo who represented Anambra Central Senatorial District in the sixth National Assembly, is dead.

According to P.M. Express, Okonkwo died on Wednesday at the age of 63 after almost recovering from a brief illness.

The development is coming a few days to the inauguration ceremony of his son, Uchenna Harris Okonkwo, who is the House of Representatives member-elect for Idemili North and South Federal Constituency of the state.

The deceased who was elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, represented the District in the Sixth National Assembly from 2007-2011.

He was also a former governorship aspirant during the 2010 governorship election in the State, but lost to the then incumbent governor, Peter Obi, who was re-elected.

His family is yet to release an official statement on his demise.
