A former Nigerian Senator, Satty Davies Gogwim, is dead.
He died earlier on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at the age of 71 in an undisclosed hospital in United Kingdom.
Cause of his death is still hazy as at the time of filing this report.
Before his death, Gogwin was a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
He served as a senator in the Plateau Central Senatorial District of Plateau State, Nigeria from 29 May 2007 to May 2011.
Gogwin obtained an advanced diploma in Accounts/Budgeting, a Diploma in Law and an advanced diploma in Law/Conflict Management at the University of Jos.
He became a Finance Officer in the Nigerian Army, Administrative Officer, Audit Officer and Budget Officer.
Gogwin was elected to represent Plateau Central in the Senate in the April 2007 elections on the Action Congress (AC) ticket.
However, he later transferred to the PDP due to frustration with the then national leadership of the AC.
Upon assumption of duties, he was appointed to committees on Water Resources, Privatisation, Integration & Cooperation, Industry, Independent National Electoral Commission and Drugs Narcotics Anti Corruption.
