A former House of Representative member, Hon Independence Ogunewe is dead. 

Nigerians received the news earlier today with shock. Hon. Ogunewe was a politician with exceptional policies rarely seen among "the political gladiators currently dominating our political climate."

"He was upright, cerebral, courageous and loyal to his electorates while he was serving in various public offices."

"His wealth of experience and contributions to the political landscape in Imo State and Nigeria in general will be greatly missed."

As a two-time member of the Nigeria's House of Representatives, Hon. Ogunewe made several indelible marks at the the green chamber. It's not surprising, therefore, that the Speaker of House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara immediately issued a heartfelt eulogy upon hearing of the death of Hon Ogunewe. In a press statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Affairs, Mr. Turaki Hassan, Dogara expressed shock over the sudden passing of the former lawmaker. "Ogunewe was a man of courage who stood for the truth always", said Dogara.

In truth, During the 5th & 6th Assembly, we can't forget the huge impacts left behind by the former astute legislator. We remember his heroic roles in bringing about many people-oriented policies in the country under his leadership of various committees in both the 5th and 6th legislatures. We also cannot forget his many acts of philanthropy, which the people of his Ahiazu/Ezinihitte Mbaise Federal Constituency greatly benefitted from. Some of Ogunewe's legislative legacies include his co-sponsorship of the motion that stopped a hasty handover of the Bakassi Peninsula to Cameroon until key national issues were sorted out. This motion, no doubts, contributed to the welfare of the indigenous people of bakassi, most of whom were resettled by the government before the eventual handover of their communities to the neighbouring country. 

Again, Ogunewe's many poverty alleviation schemes, as well as women and youth empowerment schemes, are some of his acts of kindness that will remain indelible now that he's gone.

Nigerians in general and Imolites in particular commiserate with the people of Ahiazu/Ezinihitte Mbaise Federal Constituency over this painful loss of their benefactor. No doubts, his roles as a key voice of Democracy in Nigeria will be greatly missed. May the Lord rest his soul in perfect Peace.
