GOVERNOR EMMANUEL UDUAGHAN SIGNING THE CONDOLENCE REGISTER AT THE KOKORI RESIDENCE OF CHIEF BOLOKOR.
Delta state Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has commiserated with the family of Late Chief Patrick Bolokor, describing the death of the former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs as a painful loss to the state and entire nation.
Speaking when he paid a condolence visit to the Bolokor Country home at Kokori In-Land Ethiope East L.G.A on Tuesday, Governor Uduaghan said Chief Bolokor’s death poses a big challenge because he did not die unfulfilled.
Reflecting on the unifying and fatherly posture of the late elder statesman, the governor said it was unfortunate that Chief Bolokor did not concretise some of the things he planned to do.
He said “Those of us he left behind should actualise his dream of uniting Delta State and having a united Urhobo people that are not second class citizens.”
While saying the former Minister was a father of his administration, Governor Uduaghan said the state government will assist the family in giving him a befitting burial.
He announced that a committee that will include family members and chaired by the Deputy Governor will be constituted to plan for the burial.
The governor who sued for cooperation among the family members later signed the condolence register and prayed for a peaceful burial.
Responding, a spokesman for the Bolokor family, Chief James Oghenejakpo, thanked the governor for the visit and assured him of the family’s continued support.
Notable sons and daughters of Urhobo land, including the former Military Governor of the defunct Midwest Region, General David Ejoor (rtd) and his wife, were present during the governor’s condolence visit.
The Late Chief Patrick Bolokor died last week at the age of 75.
Also yesterday, Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan was in Benin-City, the Edo state capital to condole the wife, children and other family members of late Evang. Eric Obiuwevbi was passed on recently.
The governor who said the late Obiuwevbi lived an eventful life also attended a service of songs held in honour of the deceased.
