Roll call as Hon Apugo holds memorial service for late mum
By Steve Oko
It was a gathering of who is who in Nigeria, Sunday at the Ibeku Umuahia county home of the member representing Umuahia East state
constituency at the Abia State House, Hon. Chukwudi Apugo, during a memorial service for the one year anniversary of his late mother, Madam Dorothy Apugo.
The event almost degenerated into a political rally as political big wigs defied party affiliations to identify with the colourful event.
Some of the big boys at the event were: the Deputy Governor of Abia State, Dr. Ude Oko Chukwu; the incoming National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Senator Samuel Anyanwu; and Senator Mao Ohuabunwa.
Spotted at the event also were Hon. Ginger Onwuasuibe representing Isiala Ngwa North state constituency; his Umuahia North counterpart, Hon. Kelechi Onwuzuruike; son of former Deputy Governor and business mogul, Enyinna Nwafor, among others.
Various music artists were on ground to spice up the atmosphere.
