Barely three weeks after the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, survived Covid-19 disease, the Majority Leader of the Assembly, Hon. Tim Owhefere has been reported dead.
The fourth-time lawmaker who was representing Isoko North Constituency on the platform of PDP, was said to have died on Wednesday night at the Federal Medical Centre, Asaba as sources have linked the death to suspected Covid-19 complications.
Although there is yet to be an official statement from the leadership of the House of Assembly or his family as at the time of this report, a post on the Facebook credited to his Media Assistant, Mr. Palmer Nathaniel Ogheneyole, eulogized the late lawmaker, describing him as a good man whose legacy will remain for ever in his memory.
“Before us you stood gigantically tall. And in your absence your memories will forever illuminate. Your death marks the end of an era. Your death opens a new chapter.“
“You were a good man in every sense of the word. May St. Christopher whom you served in his knighthood join in the heavenly choir to receive your soul. Bye bye, Boss.”
The New Diplomat gathered that he has been indisposed for about three weeks now and has been receiving treatment in the American Private hospital, Asaba from where he was transferred to the Federal Medical Centre, Asaba where he eventually gave up the ghost last night.
Our source also revealed that the lawmaker has been on ventilator before he passed on at the medical facility.
