Sad news hit Nigeria
Joseph Wayas, a former Nigerian Senate President under the Second Republic, has passed away.
Wayas died at a London hospital at the age of 80.
He was born on May 21, 1941, in Basang, Obudu, Cross River State, and attended Dennis Memorial Grammar School in Onitsha before moving to the United Kingdom to study at Higher Tottenham Technical College in London.
He also went to Aston University in Birmingham and West Bromwich College of Commerce, Science, and Technology in Birmingham.
Joseph Wayas was a founding member of the now-defunct All People’s Party, but in 2002 he switched to the People’s Democratic Party.
