The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it has lost one of its respected leaders, Olisaemeka Akamukali, a member of its yet to be inaugurated Board of Trustees (BoT).
Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, the party`s National Publicity Secretary, made this known in a statement, adding that the party received the news of his death with shock.
The deceased, aged 57, is said to have died in a tragic motor accident in Abuja on Tuesday.
Abdullahi said Akamukali served the APC as its first interim National Auditor.
He added that he was one of the stabilising forces in the party who always identified with progressive causes to strengthen it and ensure unity among members.
”Sadly, Akamukali has left us at a critical time when he was needed to contribute to nation building and the implementation of the APC change agenda.
”We, however, take solace knowing that the late party chieftain lived a fulfilled and impactful life during his time on earth; may his soul rest in peace,” Abdullahi said.
