The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Monday Igbuya, on Saturday joined several dignitaries across Nigeria to mourn the death of the former governor of Delta State, Olorogun Felix Ibru.

In a condolence message to the family, Igbuya described Ibru’s death as painful.

Igbuya lauded Ibru’s great concern for the unity of Nigeria, the growth of democracy and development of Delta State.

“Chief Felix Ibru as a governor, senator, international businessman, philanthropist and politician gained the respect, trust and love of the entire country and he will be greatly missed”, he said.

Igbuya prayed Almighty God to grant the soul of the late politician eternal rest and grant members of the family the strength to bear the loss.

Meanwhile, Igbuya on Saturday commiserated with the family of Nigeria’s First Republic Finance Minister, Chief Festus Okotie-Eboh over the demise of Mr. Lawrence Okotie-Eboh.

Igbuya described the death of Mr. Lawrence Okotie-Eboh as a loss, not for the Okotie-Eboh family alone but for the entire Sapele people.

“My prayer is that God will give the family the fortitude to bear the loss”, he said.
