Victor Oye, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, has urged all party members in Nigeria and the Diaspora to fervently pray for the Anambra State House of Assembly, asking that God’s mercy stop the death’s hand from striking the House, which has claimed the lives of two of its members in the past three months.
Nnamdi Okafor, the House Majority Leader, passed away at a legislative retreat in South Africa, according to ANAEDOONLINE.NG’s report from the previous day.
In the wee hours of Wednesday, the politician collapsed and passed away in a hotel in Sandton City, Johannesburg, South Africa. His death was later verified.
Before his death, Okafor, popularly called Akajiugo Awka, represented the Awka South Constituency 1 in the state Assembly.
In a press statement on Thursday, Dr. Oye urged all members to embark on three-day fasting and prayer for peace, growth and development in the House and in the party ahead of the 2023 elections.
“The times in which we have found ourselves are perilous and call for constant prayer, self-examination and penance”, the statement quoted Oye as saying.
He called on the leadership of the Anambra State House of Assembly to join in the prayer and fasting as “I see God doing something new in the House soon.”
He used the opportunity to commiserate with the Anambra State Governor, Prof. Charles Soludo, the Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Uche Okafor and the, indeed, all the members of the House on the sudden death of the Majority Leader, Hon. Nnamdi Okafor, in faraway South Africa.
He prayed God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal repose in heaven
