The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and National Deputy Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori has commiserated with the member representing Ughelli South State Constituency , Hon. (Comr.) Izeze Rume Yakubu Reuben Esq over the passing of his father, Mr Godwin Clement Izeze.
Pa Godwin Izeze passed away on Friday, August 5, 2022, at 77 years old. Until his passing, he was a devoted Christian and member of God’s Grace Ministry (GGM).
Rt Hon Oborevwori who is also the Delta State PDP Governorship Candidate, in a Press Statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Dennis Otu, described the death of Pa Godwin Izeze as not only a painful shock but also a huge loss to the Oginibo community and Ughelli South Local Government Area as a whole.
The Speaker noted that the departure of late Pa Izeze would be greatly felt as he served the country meritoriously in the Nigerian Army where he retired as a Staff Sergeant.
According to the Speaker: “I cannot explain how I am feeling at the moment since I received the sad news of the demise of Pa Godwin Izeze, the lovely father of the vibrant member representing Ughelli South State Constituency, Hon Izeze Rume Yakubu Reuben”.
The Speaker enjoined Hon. Izeze and his siblings to take solace in the fact that their late father lived an absolute life of service to God, humanity and country, saying that his works will remain indelible in many hearts.
He prayed that the good Lord should rest his peaceful soul and grant those he left behind the fortitude to bear the painful loss.
