He said Deltans at large would miss him, especially for his unrelenting pursuits towards a peaceful state.
“In spite of his love for politics and a truly egalitarian society, Ebonka submitted himself totally to the service of God,” Omo-Agege said.
He said even in death, Ebonka would forever be remembered for his life of incorruptibility and uncompromising stance on issues.
The federal lawmaker urged the Ebonka family and the people of Owa-Alizomor in Ika North-East Local Government Area of Delta to take solace in the fact that the elder statesman lived a life of peace and service to humanity.
He also prayed God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest.
Ebonka passed on in the early hours of Wednesday after a brief illness.
He served as deputy governor to late Chief Felix Ibru from 1992 to 1993.
