The Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi, has expressed sadness over the death of the Commissioner for Infrastructure Development, Fidelis Nweze.
It was gathered that the Ebonyi State Commissioner underwent surgery to correct a ruptured intestine before he died.
The state Governor while confirming the incident, in Abakaliki, the state capital, said he was saddened by the sudden death.
“At Obunagu in Enugu State, they rammed into a stationary truck. He was on a seat belt and they were all conscious. He was rushed to Niger Foundation Enugu.”
“I got to know about it on Sunday and I insisted they move him to Abuja. I sent a doctor to the Turkish hospital.”
“I feel so sad and empty. To me, it is like a dream. It is like my younger brother, my son or very close friend just slept and died,” he wept.
Governor Umahi described the deceased as a pillar to his administration, stating that he cannot be replaced.
