“While I commiserate with the wife, children, family, friends and associates, I have lost a dependable colleague, quintessential lawmaker and a friend. Again, my heart goes out to the Isoko nation for this huge loss.

“My colleague, Hon Owhefere died when his vast and expansive legislative experiences were most needed. He has left a vacuum that will be difficult to fill.

“While I take solace in the works and memorable moments we spent together as fellow lawmakers, I will forever remember his commitment to duties and loyalty to friendship.

“No doubt, this is a difficult moment for his constituents, Isoko North State Constituency. We should endeavour to keep his laudable achievements alive rather than question the circumstances of his death. It is an act of God painfully though but cannot be questioned.

Adieu Majority Leader of our times”
