Rt. Hon. Okafor who described the late Hon. Okoye as one of the outspoken and articulated lawmakers noted that the legislative institution in the state has lost a quality member in the person of Hon. Okoye.
The Speaker recollected the late Hon. Okoye’s sense of humour, hospitality and commitment to duty among other positive attributes adding that his demise will really be felt in the House of Assembly.
He urged Governor Chukwuma Soludo not to relent in his efforts towards achieving maximum security of lives and property of Ndi Anambra and called on well-meaning citizens to join hands with the governor in that direction.
Rt. Hon. Okafor while commiserating with the late Hon. Okoye’s immediate family, his kinsman, Governor Soludo and the entire Isuofia community on behalf of the members of the State House of Assembly and the entire Legislature, enjoined them to take solace in the fact that the short but eventful life of the late Hon. Okoye was full of quality service to God and humanity.
He prayed God to grant him eternal rest.
