MY CONDOLENCES TO SENATOR (DR) ARTHUR IFEANYI OKOWA
I,on behalf of the People of Burutu State Constituency 11, wish to express my heartfelt condolences to our governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa over the demise of his beloved father.
Good fathers are a natural source of protection when the storms of life begin to blow with ferocity. It is that protection that goes when they die. May the Lord, with his own Spirit, fill that gap for the Okowa family.
A good child defines good parentage. Our Governor echoes the great virtues of his father by the integrity,humility and honesty he demonstrates in both his private and public life.
My prayer is for the Lord to give our governor and the entire bereaved family a reason to thank him.
May the Soul of Papa Okowa rest in peace.
Hon. Pullah Ekpotuayerin Ebipade
Member, Delta State House of Assembly (DTHA).
