JUST IN: Former Senate President Wayas Dies

Second Republic Senate President Dr Joseph Wayas is dead.

Dr. Wayas, who has been receiving medical attention for sometime, reportedly died in in a London hospital.

Cross River Governor Ben Ayade, in a statement, confirmed the incident.

He lamented the passing of Wayas, describing his death as a monumental loss to Cross River State in particular and Nigeria as a whole.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Christian Ita, Ayade said Wayas left indelible footprints on the sands of time.

“As a state, Cross River is in pains as we mourn the passing of our illustrious son. He was a rare gem. Dr Wayas’ demise is indeed a monumental loss to our dear state and Nigeria,” Ayade was quoted as saying in the statement.

According to the Governor: “As Senate President, Dr Wayas contributed to the deepening of Nigeria’s democratic ethos through his robust and vibrant leadership of the upper legislative chamber.

“And since his retirement from active politics, the former Senate President had been playing a fatherly and stabilising role in the politics and affairs of our state.”

He consoled with Wayas’ family, assuring them that his demise is a collective loss and the pains a shared one.
