DELTA State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has described the death of Mr Donald Paul Orupabo as sad and a big loss.
Late Mr Orupabo was an operative of the Department of State Service (DSS) attached to the Government House, Asaba.
According to Governor Okowa, the deceased was a hardworking, neat diligent and respectful individual before his sad demise.
The Governor spoke yesterday (03/06/16) through the Permanent Secretary, Directorate of Government House and Protocol, Sir Emmanuel Ogidi-Gbegbaje.
Mr. Gbegbaje who was represented by Mr Anthony Uzogo, Director of Administration, Government House and Protocol, urged the family of the deceased to take solace in the fact that God knows all.
A delegation of officials of government including operatives of the DSS led by Mr Tony Onwusoro paid a condolence visit to the deceased family at Yenogoa, Bayelsa State and were received on arrival by the head of the family, Chief Boma Spero Jack, in company of the mother of the deceased, Mrs Unenifien Jack, elder brother of the deceased, Mr Paul Richard and the 89 years old grand mother of the deceased, Mrs Fanny Jack.
“I wish to once again, convey the deep condolences of the government and good people of Delta State over the demise of your son, late Mr Donald Paul Orupabo,” the Governor said, adding, while we appreciate the fact that no amount of gift can recompense for the demise, we are however confident that our presence would go a long way in cushioning the impact of his exit.”
Mr Onwusoro who is the head of DSS, Government House, Asaba described the deceased as “a promising young man who the family was looking up to,” asserting, it is very sad and we mourn his passage.”
Chief Spero Jack thanked Governor Okowa for identifying with the family in their period of grief stating, “God will continue to bless, keep you as you go back to your places.”
“It is tortuous for the family because, he was a promising young boy, his abilities surpassed that of most of his peers but, when God gives and He takes, you can’t question God,” he said, adding, “I thank the government and people of Delta State, there is no way that they can bring back my son but, they have shown that they appreciated him when he was living and appreciated him when he has died, we thank you and God will bless you.”
