APC Press Corps mourn Ehirim, demand Buhari's support for the family 

Journalists attached to the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) could not hold back their tears Thursday even as they gathered to mourn the passed away of the immediate past chairman, Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Federal Capital Territory (FCT) chapter, Comrade Chuks Ehirim. 

The late Ehirim died at the Garki hospital after a brief illness on the day he was supposed to celebrate his 50th birthday. 

In different tributes by late Ehirim's colleagues at the APC press Corps, they described Ehirim's death as a rude shock and a great lost to journalism in the country.

The newsmen testified that late Ehirim was a progressive and passionate Journalist who contributed immensely through his reportage and news analysis to the government of change and accountability. 

We can vividly remember that our late colleague has been reporting President Muhammadu Buhari and his political activities since the President joined politics. 

"The most recent was the tour of political campaigns across the country with President Buhari and the APC during the last general elections. But unfortunately for us, our colleague died of a treatable illness. 

"Sadly for us again, late Chuks Ehirim did not live to enjoy the regime of the government he laboured for" 

They, however, called on the leadership of the APC as a party he passionately reported and President Muhammadu Buhari, to extend kind gesture to "our colleague's family who left behind five young children."
