Askia Mourns Okowa's Father Featured

I received with shock and sadness the passing of Pa Arthur Okowa, father of His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, Governor of Delta Delta State and patriarch of the family.

 

I had a privileged relationship with

Pa Okowa since coming in contact with him decades ago, during which time I tapped fatherly wisdom.

 

A teacher, loving father, councilor, lover of God and adviser, Pa Okowa was a father to all who came in contact with him. I am immensely proud to call him a father because he considered me a son too. I thank God for granting him long life, even though we wished he lived longer.

 

On behalf of my wife and children, I pray to Almighty God to receive the soul of our dear father in His paradise.

 

I also pray for my leader, Governor Okowa, and the entire Okowa family for the fortitude and grace from the Most High to bear this painful loss.
