NSU candidate passes away
Politics, Society
Engr. Chimerie Ezeilo

Nanka students union’s huge loss. Engr Chimerie Ezeilo goes home.

The last election have come and gone but the pains it left in our heart will remain. On the eve of the 2015 state Assembly election in Anambra state, we were shocked to hear of the death of Chimerie Ezeilo, who participated in the presidential election and was on his way to participate in the later election when he met his untimely death.

Engr Chimerie Ezeilo is from Ubahu village, he completed the mandatory NYSC early last year. Until his death he was the president of Ubahu students union. A former PROII of the Nanka students union(2010-2012). A member of the Poly Emenike Foundation. A youth crusader and lover of children.

Indeed his demise at this time that he is needed most by his Family and all that are dear to him is disheartning. The mystery we are yet to unravel is how a total number of five persons died in Nanka that same day.

Chimerie’s death is a colossal loss to us. In the same way, it is a quick reminder of the inevitable end of all mortal. It is true that all mortals must die. But unfulfilled death of such is what we all pray against. Why do we live to die when we die to live again.
Emerie, you will forever be remembered in our heart. Memories of the good times you spent with us will not be erased in a HURRY.

His remains will be laid to rest tomorrow, the 29th day of April, 2015 in his Family compound in Ubahu village Nanka. We urge all Nanka students at all level to come out tomorrow in your numbers as we pay the last respect to this fallen hero. Meeting point is at Nkwoagu bus stop.
Time is 8am.
Dress code :black on black.
It is our prayer that God grant the Family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

Goodnight Engr Chimerie Ezeilo.
