Kogi state has lost one of its lawmakers, John Abah to death on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 and the cause of his death has not been disclosed.
His death was confirmed by Matthew Kolawole, the speaker of the assembly.
The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello also expressed deep sadness to the unfortunate development. According to the governor, John Abah was a loyal and dedicated stalwart of the All Progressive Congress in the state.
John Abah was a thoroughbred lawmaker who has contributed immensely to the overall development of his constituency and the state as a whole.
It has really been a nightmare for Kogi State House of Assembly because they've not recovered from Justice Ibrahim Shaibu Adatoga's death, who passed on in the early hours of Sunday, June 21 after a brief illness.
Late Adatoga was born in Omala local government area in Kogi state and was called to bar in 1986. He became a lodestar after swearing-in Idris Wada as the governor of Kogi State after the controversial court verdict.
This is a painful exit for the state and there will be dearly missed because they've created a vacuum that will be hard to fill.
