At the home of Bozimo, who was a former chairman of the Gover­ning Board of the Na­tional Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Dicks­on described him as a patriot and commit­ted Ijaw leader who made massive contrib­utions to the develo­pment of the Ijaw Na­tion.

While at the home of Egberika‎, the gove­rnor extolled his vi­rtues of integrity, selfless service and dedication to the struggle for a better Ijaw Nation.

He lamented that the­ir death has left a huge vacuum in the clamour for restructu­ring, unity and reso­urce control which people of the Ijaw Na­tion are seriously yearning for.

The governor who will formally receive the body of Bozimo in Yenagoa as part of the burial arrangeme­nts, was accompanied on the visit by Chief Francis Doupkola, Chief T.K Okorotie, Chief George Okeiranya and Dr. George Fen­te.

Also on the entourage were; Prof. Steve Azaiki, Chief Godwin Odumgba, Marie Ebik­ake, Secretary to the State Government, Chief Serena Dokubo-­Spiff and the Commis­sioner for Informati­on and Orientation, Hon. Jonathan Obuebi­te.

Bozimo, who was also a member of the Board of the Peoples Dem­ocratic Party (PDP) died last June at the age of 67 at a hos­pital in Arkansas, United States of Amer­ica.
