Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt.Hon Yakubu Dogara, has expressed sadness over the death of former House of Representatives member and ex-President of Pan-African Parliament, Hon Bethel Nnaemeka Amadi.
In a statement issued by Turaki Hassan, Special Adviser, Media & Public Affairs, the late lawmaker who represented Mbaitoli/Ikeduru constituency for 12 years in the House also served as Chief whip during the Speakership of Hon. Patricia Etteh. He reportedly died Sunday evening in London, England.
Speaker Dogara, while extending his heart-felt condolences to the family of the deceased, described him as a resourceful and courageous parliamentarian.
The statement further reads, “Hon Amadi was remarkable at every venture he undertook. He distinguished himself as lawmaker and displayed high sense of patriotism while serving as a principal officer of the House of Representatives and President of Pan-african Parliament where his representation of Nigeria was faultless. He always discharged his responsibilities with competence and distinction”.
“At this time of great grief, I join friends, family , loved ones and indeed the House of Representatives to mourn his untimely loss”.
May the comfort of the Lord be with his family all through this period and may God grant his soul eternal rest.
