57 years old member of the Board of Trustees for All Progressive Congress, Olisaemeka Akamukalem is dead following drowning in the flood in Abuja.

Olisaemeka Akamukalem who hails from Delta state is said to have died after his car was swept off by a torrential rainfall.

Olisaemeka was the Chairman of the Democratic Peoples Party in 2013, the Director-General of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso Campaign for President and also served as a member of the APC Presidential Campaign Committee that led to the successful election of President Mohammed Buhari.

His body has since been recovered and deposited in the morgue, Punch reports.

Speaking on this, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi said:

He was the Director-General of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso Campaign for President and thereafter served as a 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.

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

    Some incidents happen and they just seem so unexplainable. Flood of that severity in Abuja of all places. So weird. May the deceased RIP. I hope his actions or inactions directly or indirectly to public welfare did not cause this

      This is definitely unexplainable because I’m aware that it’s been raining but no rain of this severity has fallen in Abuja this year…..this is really weird. RIP to the deceased

    You see why it’s good to have the interest of everyone at heart in governance? Make good roads- No. Improve the health system- No. Education nko- not happening. The infrastructure you refuse to improve will be the death of you someday. Dear governors, president and politicians, keep looting. RIP to the dead, hopefully the senator for that constituency will be summoned and flogged.

    Le coco, these politicians have no respect for the living so why should the citizens have respect for a dead politician ?

    I’m sure at that moment when he was dying, he cursed The government and realized how much the system has failed. RIP though

    The (bad) road probably with no good drainage system failed him just like it fails hundreds of the masses on daily basis. Government do you borrow a leaf from this?

    A functional society is for the benefit of all, not just the poor.
    Let’s build our society because we live here.

    This sounds strange!! Where in Abuja did this happen? They can’t just say “flood in Abuja” because I haven’t seen any “flood” in the Abuja metropolis, I haven’t even witnessed enough rain let alone flood. There’s definitely something they are not telling us
