The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday, mourned the death of elder statesman and former President of the Senate, Senator Joseph Wayas.


Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the party described the late Wayas death as a monumental national loss.


He said, Wayas was a very courageous democrat, an exceptional statesman, who made personal sacrifices in standing for justice, equity, rule of law and true federalism in our country, both as a political leader and a private individual.


Kola noted that as a commissioner in the old southeastern state, member of the Constituent Assembly and later the President of the Senate, Senator Wayas exhibited uncommon patriotism towards the unity, stability and development of Nigeria.


He said the PDP is sad that Senator Wayas left the scene at the time the nation needed his wealth of experience and stabilizing role the most.


He said, the party commiserates with the Wayas family, the people of South-South and the institution of the Senate and prayed God to grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
