Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi, has expressed deep shock over the death of Chief Tobias Okwuru, “an Ezza-born political bulwark who neither believes in ‘I’ in the team nor is he a Dime in a Dozen.” The Governor described his death as “a hard pill to swallow and a huge loss.”

Tobias Okwuru was a pioneer of several major political positions in Ebonyi State – State Auditor of Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Whip of Ebonyi State House of Assembly. “These positions he held firmly without bias before he proceeded to represent Ikwo/Ezza South in the Federal House of Representatives in 2011,” Umahi said Friday in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Francis Nwaze.

He commiserated with Okwuru’s immediate family, Amudo Community, Ezza Nation, Ebonyi State and Nigeria in general.

He advised all to take consolation, knowing that Okwuru’s “journey on earth was eventful –

like a footprint in the sand of time that will be there for generations yet unborn.

“He will be missed.”
