The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Emeka Ihedioha, has described the death of Ralph Uwechue as painful, unfortunate and regretful.

This is contained in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Oke Epia, in Abuja.

Ihedioha said that Ndigbo had lost a quintessential statesman, father, figure and rallying point for unity and progress of the Igbo race.

The deputy speaker, who expressed shock at the sad development, said that the deceased led brilliantly during his tenure as President of Ohaneze Ndigbo.

Ihedioha said the late Uwechue made his mark as a fine diplomat who brought great skills and experience to bear during his leadership of the pan-Igbo body.

“His exalted position as president of Ohaneze Ndigbo did not in any way distract him from his nationalist posture and an elder statesman,??  he said.

The deputy speaker prayed God Almighty to grant him eternal rest, while consoling the family he left behind.

He urged the entire Ndigbo to bear the loss with equanimity and submission to the will of the immortal creator.
