Second Republic Speaker of old Anambra State, Chief Ifeanyichukwu Enemchukwu, has died at the age of 75.

Enemchukwu, who was still in active politics before his passing, planted his name on the sands of time in the political arena between 1979 and 1983 when he reigned as the speaker of old Anambra State.

His death was made public yesterday by the speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly, Hon. Mrs. Rita Maduagwu when she read a letter from the Enemchukwu family on the floor of the House announcing his death. The reading of the letter was preceded by a minute silence by the members of the state House of Assembly in honour of the departed speaker.

The lawmakers in addition held a special session in honour of late Enemchuckuwu as they described him as a lawmaker whose contributions during his active days as politician and speaker helped to shape the country’s democracy.

They also called for the immortalisation of late Enemchukwu by the incumbent Willie Obiano administration.
