Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has described the pioneer chairman of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN in Delta State, late Chief Adolor Okotie-Eboh as a principled political and business leader.

Senator Omo-Agege, in a statement he personally signed and issued, noted that the death of Okotie-Eboh, who passed away on Saturday was a huge loss not just to the state but the entire country.

The Deputy President of the senate also described Okotie-Eboh as “a leader with an inspiring sociable personality which endeared him to many Nigerians across all walks of life”.

“It took his bold, extraordinary leadership skills to transform the APC to a viable opposition from its now defunct main legacy party, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) where he was also then the Delta State Chairman and worked with my humble self as the party’s Delta State Governorship candidate”, Omo-Agege explained.

He said though it would be difficult to come to terms with the reality of Chief Okotie-Eboh’s exit, it was his prayer that the Almighty God would  comfort and strengthen the entire Okotie-Eboh family at this moment.

“Chief Okotie-Eboh was a profoundly good leader and we pray that his wonderful soul finds rest in Jesus name”, Omo-Agege stated.
