It was with shock that we received the sad news of the demise of my good friend and the Honorable Commissioner for Environment in Abia State, Dr Solomon Ogunji, who passed on after a brief illness at the Abia State University Teaching Hospital, Aba, on Saturday, 23rd May, 2020.
Dr Ogunji served our dear state meritoriously in various capacities and was a loyal party man who was also close to me and my family. We will surely miss him even as we pray for his family and the loved ones he left behind to be granted the fortitude to bear this painful loss.
All of us at the Abia State House of Assembly mourn with his family, his community, the good people of Abia State and members of the state executive council led by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu; we pray God to give us all the strength and fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
May his soul rest In peace.
Rt. Honorable Chinedum Orji
Speaker, Abia State House of Assembly
