Imo Assembly Lawmaker Egwim Dies After Illness


The candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the recently concluded Ideato North and South Federal Constituency election and current lawmaker representing Ideato North in the Imo State House of Assembly, Arthur Egwim, is dead.

Confirming Egwim’s demise in a statement on Tuesday, the Speaker of the state legislature, Emeka Nduka, said the lawmaker died after a brief illness in his home in Lagos State.

While commiserating with his immediate family and colleagues, people of the Ideato nation, and the entire state, the Speaker described the late lawmaker as one of the best brains in the parliament whose demise would create a vacuum in the Imo State assembly.
