A statement issued on Tuesday by the deceased’s younger brother, Chukwu, and the Director-General of his Constituency Office, George Okiyi, said the lawmaker died on Saturday in Germany.
Chukwu said contrary to claims that the lawmaker died on Monday, Ossy died on Saturday in Germany.
The statement read in part: “As it pleased the Lord and in total submission to His will, but with heavy hearts, we announce the passing on of Prestige.
“His transition to higher glory occurred in the wee hours of February 6 in Germany, where he has been receiving treatment for the past few months.
“On his sickbed and up until his last days, his uncommon love for his uncommon people of Aba and Abia found expression in words.
“He fought gallantly to live for his people but God decided to take him into rest in his bosom. Who are we to question God?” NAN quoted him as saying
The family promised to carry everyone along in the plan to give him “a hero’s farewell that he eminently deserves”.
Reacting to the death, the state Chairman, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Rev. Augustine Ehiemere, described Ossy’s death as a big loss to Abia people and humanity in general.
Ehiemere said the news of his death came to the party as a big shock.
“It is painful and very regrettable for us to lose such a man. It’s really painful.
“The party is in a very mournful mood. We regret that Ossy died at the peak of his career in life. “We console the family, APGA family and the entire Nigeria,” he said.
Ehiemere described Ossy as a human capital developer, a technocrat and businessman, who ventured into politics.
He said that Ossy empowered people, fixed roads and touched the lives of widows and orphans.
