The Chief Executive Officer of Jorek Development Company Limited and the LordMayor Urhobowood International, Amb. Chief Dr. Udusan Joseph Orekereke is dead.
In a post by one of his confidant, Ibebe Rufus Akpobome, the Lord Mayor of Urhobowood died of Blood Cancer.
Orekereke 49, was a politician and was the House of Assembly candidate for Ughelli South at the 2019 elections in Delta state under ADC before he defects to the PDP.
According to Ibebe,
AN IROKO HAS FALLEN!
This morning, the news of the death of a man whom I have worked closely with to the point that he moved from the freindship zone and became a brother, Dr. Orekereke Udusan Joseph to me as a rude shock and surprise.
The news left me devasted while bringing so much pains to me.
As one of his close confidants, I know how much and long he fought hard to remain alive.
In the face of this storm, he never gave up. He believed he would make it out alive. He believed he would overcome the cancer. He was certain this sickness would not kill him. He was certain he would come out of this alive and thank God through an elaborate Thanksgiving. Why this happened is what I can’t explain.
The news was too hard to believe even when it came from a reliable and dependable source. I thought it was a dream but it is painful that it has been confirmed that indeed, Dr. Orekereke has joined his ancestors. He has slept never to wake up again.
An iroko in the Urhobo film industry as well as a great promoter of the Urhobo Arts and Culture has fallen.
It’s painful that he departed at this moment when he is needed most. It even more painful that he departed when his dreams for the Urhobo Arts and Culture has not materialize.
Like all men, I submit to the wish of God. I can’t question God. I take solace in the fact that he lived a good life and contributed greatly to the growth and development of Urhobo nation.
May God in His infinite mercies, grant his soul eternal rest, Amen.
