Late Pa. Arthur Okowa.
Former Speaker of Delta state House of Assembly, Rt Hon (Engr) Victor Ochei says the death of Chief Arthur Okorie Okowa aged 88, has robbed Delta State and indeed Nigeria, of an eminent and inestimable patriarch.
Ochei, the Executive Director of Maritime Labour and Cabotage Services at the Nigerian Maritime Administration And Safety Agency(NIMASA), stated this in his condolence message to the Okowa
Household, Owa-Alero community in Ika North-East Local Government Area of Delta state, and Nigeria in general.
The speaker emeritus admonished the family to take solace in the fact that the late octogenarian, who was a renowned educationist, an exemplary disciplinarian endowed with longevity, lived a fulfilled life as he bequeathed society of worthy offspring prominent
among whom is Delta State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa.
On behalf of my family, I extend my heartfelt condolence to my esteemed brother His Excellency, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa on the transition to eternity of Chief Pa Okorie Okowa, an inestimable father-figure of global acclaim.”
While beseeching the Almighty God to provide the family and community with abundant strength of mind to bear the irreparable loss, Ochei also prayed for a deserved rest of late Chief Arthur Okorie Okowa’s soul rest in the Lord’s bosom.
