Senator Akpabio mourns Dr. Ojougboh

The President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has described the sudden death of a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and former Executive Director of Projects in the Niger Delta Development Commission, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, as shocking and a huge loss to the people of the Niger Delta Region and the entire country.

The Senate president spoke in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Jackson Udom, on Thursday.

The statement quoted Akpabio as having said: “The late Ojougboh as a member of the House of Representatives, contributed in no small way, his quota to the development of his people as their representative from 2003 -2007. 

“He was the true voice of the people of Agbor, who ensured they were seen and heard in the national scheme of things.”

Akpabio recalled the contributions of the Agbor, Delta State-born politician to the development of the Niger Delta Region, when he occupied the office of the Executive Director Projects in the NDDC, while he supervised the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs.

According to Akpabio: “On behalf of my family, the people of Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial and the Senate, I commiserate with the Ojougboh family of Agbor, the government and people of Delta State, on this painful demise of a notable and committed son of Agbor. 

“I pray to God to grant his wife, children and those he left behind the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss.”
