The former senate president said that the outstanding contributions of the late senator to nation building would be missed.

He prayed God for the peaceful repose of the soul of the late lawmaker.

”I pray God Almighty to console, comfort and grant you and the entire family the strength to go through this difficult period,” Anyim said.
