According to him, “The late monarch was a man of impressive character and a devout Christian, whose humility and simplicity rank among his greatest virtues.
“Let me use the opportunity offered by this moment to extend my condolences to the people of Olomu Kingdom, Ughelli South and Indeed the Council of Traditional Rulers and Urhobo Nation on the demise of the Owhorode”, he said.
The PDP Governorship Candidate noted that the royal father’s penchant for excellence and strict adherence to the Urhobo culture will be missed and prayed that Almighty God should grant the departed soul eternal and peaceful rest and comfort all those he left behind.
