Breaking: Former VP, Alex Ekwueme Dies at 85 in London

New York[RR]Awka-London–Former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ifeanyichukwu Ekwueme, joins the ancestors hours ago at age 85, in London clinic a statement issued by his family said.

Our source gathered the statement was issued last night that revered politician died in London, where he was flown exactly a week earlier by the Nigerian Government for further treatment.

The elder statesman, who recently turned 85, was first treated at a local hospital in Enugu after collapsing at his Independence Layout residence in the Coal City around 2am on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

The statement signed by his younger brother, HRH. Prof Laz Ekwueme, the Igwe of Oko in Anambra State, in a statement reads: “The Ekwueme family regrets to announce the peaceful passing away of their patriarch, the former Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Dr Alex Ifeanyichukwu Ekwueme GCON. The sad event occurred at The London Clinic at 10:00 pm on Sunday 19th November 2017.”

Condolence messages have poured in over the death of the former vice President.

Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has commiserated with Governor–Willie Obiano and the people of Anambra State on the death of former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme (GCON), who died on Sunday in a London hospital at 85 years.

“Governor Okowa also conveyed his condolences to the family of the late Elder Statesman particularly the Oko Kingdom, describing him as a committed patriot who served our nation at the highest levels with an uncommon sense of patriotism and unwavering dedication.

In a statement in Asaba, the governor said he was saddened by the demise of the former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The statement read: “I am deeply saddened by the death of elder statesman and former Vice President of Nigeria, Dr Alex Ekwueme (GCON), who passed on at the age of 85 years”.
