A dumb-struck Governor Uduaghan said he was highly pained by the development, noting that he was finding it difficult to accept that they are no more.
“I have not been able to say anything. Eating is only a formality. I can’t believe what happened. This death is a personal calamity” he declared.
A statement signed by Felix Ofou, Press Secretary to the Governor also conveyed his regrets and wishes to the Delta State Executive Council, families of the deceased and people of Issele-Uku directly affected by the death and asked God to grant them fortitude to bear the loss.
“My heart is with their families. I share in their pain. Sunny Ofili’s colleagues and friends are affected. Issele-Uku has lost a king has been thrown into mourning. I only ask God to grant everyone involved fortitude to bear the loss” he added.
Governor Uduaghan however said the late adviser will particularly be missed for his innovative spirit, gentle disposition and team effort, adding that Ofili enjoyed a personal relationship with him.
“He enjoyed a personal relationship with my family and I. He was one of the few people appointed because of what I knew of them. I appointed him based on merit and everyone attests to his capacity and attributes” he enthused.
