You would recall that Nwakaudu, who hailed from Abia State, died on Sunday.
The cause of his death has not been made official but it could be related to cardiac arrest.
Reacting, the main opposition party said it was pained that Nwakaudu died at his prime when his skills and patriotism were still most needed.
“Our hearts bleed as our nation, the media industry and indeed Rivers state, have lost one of our brightest and patriotic media professionals; a loyal compatriot, who gave his all in serving our dear nation.
“Nwakaudu was a courageous and hardworking Nigerian, who dedicated his youthful life in serving our nation as an accomplished journalist, Special Assistant to Governor @GovWike during his tenure as Minister of Education and then as his Special Assistant on Electronic Media, where he contributed immensely in the implementation of Governor Wike’s vision for a New Rivers State.
“Indeed, Nwakaudu’s death is a painful loss not only to Governor @Gov Wike and the government of Rivers state but also to our great party, the @OfficialPDPNig, the media industry and our nation, Nigeria, at large.”
