The Ndokwa Representative, Rt. Hon. (Rev) Dr. Ossai Nicholas Ossai PhD has commiserated with His Excellency, Sen. Dr. Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, his family, the government and entire people of Delta State over the transition to glory of his beloved father, Pa Arthur Okorie Uzoma Okowa whose death was announced on Thursday, January 28th, 2021.
In a statement issued on Thursday, The Ndokwa Representative described the death of the patriarch as a monumental loss to him, his immediate family, the good people of Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency and the entire Deltans at large, noting that, Pa Okowa lived a fulfilled life worthy of emulation and immortalisation.
He said: “The late sage, Pa UZOMA OKOWA was my long standing endearing mentor, who as a foremost educationist, significantly inspired me to valuable pursuit of academic excellence, discipline, hard-work, God’s reverence and love for God, humility and leadership, core elements that also characterized the life and personal philosophy of Chief Arthur UZOMA OKOWA, the Okpara-Uku of Owa-Alero.”
“On behalf of my family and the good people of Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency, I commiserate with the Executive Governor of Delta State, His Excellency Sen. Dr. Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, the people of Owa-Alero and the government and people of Delta State over the transition to glory of a seasoned administrator and a disciplinarian. My prayers and love are with His Excellency, our Governor and encourage the entire family to take solace in the fact that Late Pa Arthur Okorie Uzoma Okowa declared himself that “His Hope, Trust and Faith are in God”; today that hope is fulfilled as he gracefully joined the angels to continue the hallelujah song in God’s presence.”
“May God Almighty grant his soul eternal rest and grant divine fortitude to all those who mourn his transition to eternal rest.”
