Nigerian senator dies in UK - Politics and News Blog in Nigeria

A senator representing Cross River North, Rose Oko, is dead. The 63-year-old senator died on Monday night at a United Kingdom (UK) medical facility where she had been receiving treatment in the last one month.

Oko was a member of the House of Representatives representing Yala/Ogoja Federal Constituency during the 7th National Assembly.

She was elected into office as the first female representative from her constituency in June 2011.

Oko was a second-term member of the upper chamber and served as the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Trade and Investment.

Her death comes about six weeks after Plateau senator, Ignatius Longjan, passed on and three months after Imo senator, Ben Uwajumogwu, died.
