In his remarks, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, urged young politicians to emulate the life of service of the deceased politician.

He said, “Arthur Nzeribe, played his part as a politician and legislator, and I knew him when I was a member of the House of Representatives and he was here in the Senate.

“Our paths crossed several times, and surely the political space will have some vacuum, but we pray that younger politicians will grow to provide the kind of services that ordinarily would have been missed because of this monumental death.”

The chamber, thereafter, held a minute silence to honour the deceased.
