A renowned economist and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Alex Otti OFR has expressed shock and sadness over the demise of his former party man and the Honourable Member Representing Aba North and South federal constituency at the National Assembly, Hon. Prestige Ossy.
This was contained in a release signed by Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) to Dr. Alex Otti, Mr. Ferdinand Ekeoma, and made available to the press.
Otti disclosed that the sad news of Hon. Prestige’s death came to him as a rude shock, because it was both untimely and unexpected.
According to the ex bank Chief “Immediately after Hon. Prestige was flown abroad over his ill health, I held on with so much hope and confidence, believing that he would return in sound health to continue representing the wonderful people of Aba North and South, but my hope and expectations were shattered when the sad news of his passing filtered in.”
Otti regretted that Hon. Prestige’s death has created a huge vacuum and denied his constituents the wonderful representation he was offering to them before death came calling.
The APC Chieftain added that Hon. Prestige’s death is once again a sad reminder of the ephemeral nature of human life hence the need for the living to strive and live upright at all times since the next minute could be unpredictable.
Finally, he condoled with the family of Hon. Prestige, his friends and the people of Aba North and South federal constituency over the death, and prayed God to grant his soul eternal repose.
