Following the demise of the mother of the first lady, the speaker had led members of the State house to Evwreni Community in Ughelli North local government area of Delta State, Sunday for condolence visit.

The lawmaker maintained that the bond of friendship between the Executive and the Legislative arms of government is all-encompassing, even in times of travails, positing that what affects the first family, affects the entire State being represented by the twenty-nine members of the state legislature.

His words, “mama lived a fulfilled life. She was a vitreous who always wanted everyone around her to be taken care of. The same virtue she bequeathed on her daughter, Her Excellency Deaconess Tobore Oborevwori, wife of the Governor of Delta State.

“On behalf of the Delta State House of Assembly, I pray God give Her Excellency and His Excellency and the entire family the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss. And may mama gentle soul rest in the bosom of the Lord”, he added.
