Kogi State Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello has expressed shock over the demise of “a selfless leader” and a former Senator of the Federal Republic, Senator Salihu Otaru Ohize.
The Governor described the demise of the former Chairman of Okene Local Government Area as a “painful exit of a political General who fought hard for the change we are enjoying in Nigeria and Kogi State”.
He prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed and for the family, the State and the nation to bear the irreparable loss, saying the late Ohize will “forever be honoured in our minds for his selflessness, commitment to good governance and belief in fairness, justice and equity”.
Governor Bello urged the Ebira nation and Kogites in general to bond together in “this moment of great grief and irrecoverable loss”, urging the people to accept the will of God.
He said his government shall keep defending the ideals the late Ohize held dear, which are development, progress and justice.
May Allah grant him Al-Jannah Firdaus.Share this on WhatsApp
