Senator Ayogu Eze Dies At 66

Senator Ayogu Eze is dead. He represented Enugu North Senatorial District of Enugu State in the Senate from 2007 to 2015.

Senator Eze, a founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), died in an Abuja hospital after a long battle with an undisclosed illness.

According to the source, the late Senator has been down, a situation that made him unable to attend his child’s wedding ceremony held earlier in the year in Lagos State.

Aged 66, Ayogu was a founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before he defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC), where he ran for Enugu State governorship election.

In the Senate, the former journalist was appointed chairman of the senate committee on Information and Media, making him the official spokesman of the senate in 2007.

After his reelection to the senate in 2011, he was appointed chairman of the committee on works.

Eze also served as a member of committees on Police Affairs, National Planning, Marine Transport and Federal Character & Inter-Government Affairs.

In May last year, the Senate confirmed the appointment of Eze and five others as Federal Commissioners for Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, RMAFC.
