A former lawmaker who represented Plateau Central Senatorial District in the Senate, Senator Satty Davies Gogwim is dead.

Naija News gathered that Senator Gogwim reportedly died on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, at the age of 71 in an undisclosed hospital in the United Kingdom.

The cause of the Nigerian Senator’s death is still unclear at the time of filing this report. The Senator died at a London hospital.

Before his death, Satty Davies Gogwin was a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition political party, and he served as a senator for the Plateau Central Senatorial District of Plateau State, Nigeria from 29 May 2007 to May 2011.

Late Senator Gogwim obtained an advanced diploma in Accounts/Budgeting, a Diploma in Law and an advanced diploma in Law / Conflict Management at the University of Jos. He became a Finance Officer in the Nigerian Army, Administrative Officer, Audit Officer and Budget Officer.

The late Nigerian Senator was elected to represent Plateau Central in the Senate in the April 2007 elections on the Action Congress (AC) ticket. However, he later transferred to the PDP due to frustration with the AC national leadership then.

After taking his seat in the Nigerian Senate, Gogwim was appointed to committees on Water Resources, Privatization, Integration & Cooperation, Industry, Independent National Electoral Commission and Drugs Narcotics Anti Corruption.
