Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has commiserated with the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the November 6, 2021 governorship election in Anambra, Valentine Ozigbo, over the death of his father, Chief Andrew Ozigbo.

In his condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba, Okowa condoled with the Ozigbo family of Amesi in Aguata Council and the PDP in Anambra State over the demise of their patriarch.

He praised the late Ozigbo, who died at 93, for inculcating strong moral values in his children, which bore testimony in the character of Valentine, who is his last child.

Okowa described the deceased nonagenarian as a man of high integrity, who stood by his son in the gubernatorial race and ensured that he called to congratulate the winner even before the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the final results.

“On behalf of my family, the government and people of Delta, I commiserate with my dear brother and friend, Valentine Ozigbo and the entire Ozigbo Dynasty of Amesi in Aguata Council of Anambra State over the death of their patriarch.

“The deceased lived a remarkable and fulfilled life, as a foremost educationist and was always a role model for many in the society. As Headmaster and later, Principal, he was a great disciplinarian and teacher of immense repute, who moulded the lives of many Anambra people during his years in service.”

“As a devout Christian, he attended morning mass constantly until his death. Chief Ozigbo would be remembered for his outstanding contributions to God and the education sector,” the statement added.

The governor prayed to God Almighty to grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
