Former Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has described the death of the first civilian governor of the State, Chief Felix Ibru as sad while thanking God that he lived an unblemished, rewarding life worth emulating.

Dr. Uduaghan, reacting to the announcement of the death said, “Though it is saddening to lose a patriot like Chief Ibru, we are comforted by the fact that he set the stage for the new Delta as the first civilian governor of the state. Even though his regime was truncated, he was an unrepentant patriot who as Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria worked tirelessly to ensure that the unity of the country was non-negotiable.

In a statement signed by Sunny Areh, his media aide, the former governor stated: “I recall with nostalgia, his role and fatherly interventions in our peace agenda as President General of the Urhobo Progressive Union where he brought to bear his characteristic humility.

“Though a sad loss, we are comforted that he left a legacy that would stand the test of time. He will be remembered for his principled and irrepressible position on issues of national importance. I commiserate with the Ibru Family, especially the patriarch, Olorogun Michael Ibru, and pray the the Almighty God will give them the fortitude to bear this great loss.
