The All Progressives Congress (APC) has received the news of the death of one of the Party’s respected leaders, Sir Olisaemeka Akamukali with shock.

The Party Chieftain who died in a tragic motor accident in Abuja on Tuesday, was a member of the Party’s yet-to-be-inaugurated Board of Trustees (BoT).

He was aged 57.

The Party prays the Almighty God grants the immediate family the fortitude to bear the loss.

The late Akamukali was the former national chairman of the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP) that merged with others to form the APC in 2013. He had also served as the first Assistant National Secretary of the All Peoples Party (APP).

He was the Director-General of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso Campaign for President and thereafter served as member of the APC Presidential Campaign Committee that worked for the successful election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

The late party chieftain who served the APC as first interim National Auditor was one the stabilizing forces in the party and always identified with progressive causes to strengthen the Party and ensure unity among members.

Sadly, the late Akamukali has left us at a critical time when he was needed to contribute to nation building and the implementation of the APC Change Agenda. We however take solace knowing that the late Party chieftain lived a fulfilled and impactful life during his time on earth. May his soul rest in peace.
