Less than two months after the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Leo Okuweh Ogor (PDP Delta), returned from a four-month long illness to the floor of the Green Chamber, Daily Correspondents has learnt that the lawmaker’s condition has worsened in the past few days.

According to a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God where Mr. Ogor fellowship every Sundays, he said the lawmaker’s ailment has now gone beyond medical redemption, as even prayers offered by church members for his quick recovery is not yielding the desired results.

The church member who would not want his name mentioned said Mr. Ogor’s problems could be spiritual and that he has lost much weight.

Recall that his return to the Green Chamber on February 8th, following his long absence due to partial stroke which he suffered and subsequently flown to a Switzerland hospital for treatment, drew lots of cheers and backslapping as colleagues welcomed him back.

He was seen as a viable and credible opposition leader who was always fond of threatening any member that defected from PDP with court action and loss of seat.

Ogor is also under investigation by the EFCC for abuse of office; awarding constituency projects to his companies; contract splitting; being sole signatory to six accounts, which were not declared in his Asset Declaration Form; and curious payment of over N318m into two of the accounts by the Niger Delta Development Commission for undisclosed projects.
