The Delta state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa and his family laid their father, Sir Okorie Okowa to rest today in a private ceremony due to Covid-19.
Okowa disclosed this in a post on his Instagram page.
In his eulogy, the governor remembered the extraordinary life his father lived and his legacy as a teacher and a man of faith.
“In my eulogy, I remembered our late father as a good man who fought for the ordinary people in his community. As a teacher and a man of immense faith, he often suffered the consequences of standing for the truth — however, God always vindicated him at the end.” Okowa said
He also said; “This is why, today, as we paid our last respects to my father, I was proud of the extraordinary life that he lived, and I will always be honoured for the unique God-given privilege that I had to be his son.
I will miss him… Till we meet again.”
