In a condolence message to the Ohwovoriole family, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olisa Ifeajika, Okowa said the death of the legal luminary was a great loss to not only the family and Urhobo nation, but to the people of Olomu Kingdom and Nigeria Bar Association (NBA).

The governor who described Ohwovoriole as a man of great determination and perseverance, said that as a founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he contributed significantly to the various victories recorded by the party in Ughelli South and the state.
“Late Chief Milton Ohwovoriole was a courageous leader who always stood for truth and at every point in time, spoke his mind on any issue irrespective of who was involved.
“On behalf of my family, the government and people of Delta, I commiserate with the Ohwovoriole family and the people of Olomu Kingdom and the NBA on the passing of a legal icon, Chief Milton Ohwovoriole (SAN)”, he said.
He urged the family to be consoled by the knowledge that their late father’s contributions to the society would not be forgotten.
Okowa prayed that God Almighty would comfort them and all those who mourn the departed chief and grant his soul eternal rest.
