Enugu State government has expressed its deepest sadness over the death of the Commissioner for Transport, Rt. Hon. Mathias Ekweremadu Jnr, who died on Thursday, February 4, 2021, while in active service.

In a statement by the Commissioner for Information, Nnanyelugo Chidi Aroh, the state government condoled the late Ekweremadu family, the people of Aninri Local Government Area and Enugu State.

This came, as the Governor of Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi led a state government delegation to the family of the late Commissioner for Transport, Rt. Hon.  Ekweremadu Jnr, on a condolence visit, at his Enugu residence.

Gov. Ugwuanyi who was accompanied by his Deputy, Hon. Mrs. Cecilia Ezeilo, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Edward Ubosi, other members of the House and State Executive Council (EXCO), consoled the wife of the late Commissioner, Mrs. Stella Ekweremadu, his children and other family members.

Describing late Ekweremadu as “an astute politician and Community leader”, the Information Commissioner, Aroh, added that he “served at various times as Chairman Aninri Local Government Area and member Enugu State House of Assembly, before his present appointment as Honourable Commissioner for Transport”.

“We pray that the Almighty God grants us all the fortitude to bear this painful loss and grant his soul eternal rest”, Aroh said.

During the condolence visit, Gov. Ugwunayi and his entourage were also received by the Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma, who offered prayers for the repose of the soul of the late Ekweremadu, and for God to grant his family and the state government the fortitude to bear the loss.

The late Ekweremadu was ex-Chairman of Aninri Local Government Area and former Chief Whip of the State House of Assembly who represented Aninri Constituency, between 2013 and 2019.
