Pa Okowa, was a well known community leader in Owa Alero, title holder of “Ojeyangbe of Owa Kingdom,” a Justice of the Peace, JP and a respected educational administrator, a professional teacher, mentor and politician of no mean repute.
He knows his onions, a pragmatic and consummate community leader, and contributed immensely to the development of Owa kingdom in particular and Ika nation in general.
His demise was a rude shock to his immediate family, community, friends and associates.
It was learnt that Gov Okowa and his late father were well bonded and had to publicly let go some tears when it done on him that his best friend and Dad – Pa Okorie, had gone deeper than divers into the high profundity of sleep, never to return. Sad indeed.
