Chairman of Akwanga local government council in Nasarawa state, Emmauel Leweh is dead.
This development was confirmed on Friday by the chief press secretary to the governor, Addra Ibrahim.
Recall that Leweh had reportedly slumped on Monday in his office at the council secretariat in Akwanga area.
The late LG chairman was also said to have been admitted to a private hospital in Abuja, where he died on Thursday night.

Following a condolence visit to Leweh’s family on Friday, Abdullahi Sule, governor of Nasarawa, described the late LG chairman as a “vibrant gentleman and visionary leader who made great contributions to the development of the council and the state at large”.
“In only a few months into his three-year tenure, the young man has shown great courage, leadership and sincere commitment to uniting the people of the area and steering the council on the path of accelerated growth,” Sule said, according to a statement by Ibrahim.
The governor also described Leweh’s death as “a huge loss to the Mada nation in particular and the state in general”, and urged youths in the area to “consider the death as the will of God”.
