As the Majority Leader in the Delta State House of Assembly where he represented Isoko North Constituency, he personified the highest virtues in articulating, advancing and protecting the interests of our Party, PDP, and his people.
The death of TKO, an extraordinary lawmaker, my loyal friend, brother and confidant, is devastating to me and the Isoko people who he loved so much.
A peace and consensus builder, he was a rallying point for major policy thrusts that have had a profound effect in developing Delta State.
Hon. Owhefere was a loyal member of our Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and was always in the forefront consolidating the popularity of the party in the state.
As one of the prominent leaders in Isoko nation, he was a driving force in forging unity and togetherness. His doors were always open for sons and daughters of Isoko who needed his counsel or direct intervention in their affairs.
At this difficult time for his family, friends and political associates, I urge all people of goodwill to join my wife and I in praying for the grace and fortitude for them to bear the loss. I also pray that his kind soul finds rest in the Paradise of the King of kings.
To you, Mr. Speaker, who will definitely miss TKO’s vibrant and articulate legislative contributions and members of the Delta State House of Assembly, I pray that the Almighty will comfort you all.”
