resident Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa and his entire family on the passing of their father, Sir Arthur Okowa.
In a letter of condolence to the Governor on behalf of the Government and people of Nigeria, the President said:
“The late Pa Okowa lived a life dedicated to the service of God and humanity, as a teacher, school administrator, devout Christian and community leader.
“He will be fondly remembered for his meritorious service to Delta State and indeed Nigeria. I urge you and other members of the family to find inspiration and solace in the fulfilled life he lived.”
President Buhari also prayed that the Almighty God will grant Governor Okowa, his family and all those mourning “the fortitude to bear the loss of this outstanding departed gentleman.”
