Omo-Agege mourns Okotie-Eboh’s passage
Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege has described the weekend’s passage of pioneer chairman of the All Progressives Congress in Delta State, Chief Adolor Okotie-Eboh, as “a huge loss not just to the state but to the entire country.”
Recalling the role played by the scion of the Chief Festus Okotie-Eboh family of Itsekiri kingdom in a statement in Abuja, the federal lawmaker stated that he had lost a bosom friend, an elder brother and an influential political adviser.
Paying tributes to the late politician, Omo-Agege said the departed was as a “principled political and business leader with an inspiring sociable personality which endeared him to many Nigerians across all walks of life.”
He added: “It took his bold, extraordinary leadership skills to transform the APC to a viable opposition from its now defunct main legacy party, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), where he was also then the Delta State chairman and worked with my humble self as the party’s governorship candidate.”
