The former Executive Director, Projects of the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC, Engr Samuel Adjogbe, has commiserated with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State over the demise of his father, Sir Arthur Okorie Okowa and the Majority Leader of the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon Tim Owhefere.
Adjogbe in a statement issued by Mr Ogheneovo Itefue, his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, noted that the death of the duo was shocking and rather unfortunate.
According to him, “No doubt, the late Sir Arthur Okorie Okowa popularly called ‘AOU’ was a very cheerful and impactful father figure to all. Rare virtues of honesty and integrity must have earned him the highly respected chieftaincy title as the ‘Okpara-Uku’ of Owa-Alero in Ika North East Local Government Area”.
Adjogbe also commiserated with the Governor over the demise of the Majority Leader and Chairman, House Committee on Information of the Delta State House of Assembly; Hon Tim Owhefere, describing him as one whose committed service to nation, society and family won’t be forgotten.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the duo. May the good Lord grant the respective families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. They would be sorely missed”.
