Breaking: Enugu Former Senator dies

Senator Fidelis Okoro who represented the Enugu North Senatorial District between 1999-2007 has died.

A source close to the family revealed to Myinfoclock that the senator died in Abuja after a lingering health complication which had taken him in and out of Nigeria in the past few years.

Born in Iheagu Nru Nsukka, Enugu State, former Senator Okoro took office when he won the 1999 Senatorial election under the Alliance for Democracy  (AD) alongside Jim Nwobodo of People Democratic Party who represented Enugu East Senetorial Zone and Hyde Onuaguluchi who represented Enugu West Senetorial Zone under All People's Party (APP).

In June 1999, Senator Okoro was appointed to Committees on Senate Services, Industries, Police Affairs, Agriculture and Niger Delta.

Senator Okoro later joined the People's Democratic Party and established an aradite romance with Governor Chimaroke Nnamani, where he was re-elected to the Senate Chamber with PDP ticket.

The late senator who was popularly called by his Igbo title, Agbadaman, was an industrialist, political leader, socialite and a team player in Enugu and Nigerian politics.

May his soul rest in Peace, Amen.
