In his words: “I am especially pained because I looked forward to celebrating his 100th birthday. In fact, a thousand trees had been planted around Asaba as part of activities prepared for the grand celebration.”

Adding: “Cerebral, frank, kind-hearted and truly a father of our capital, Obi was a royal father all round.

“As Governor, I benefitted from his wealth of knowledge and wisdom in navigating my administration. The reign of Asagba ushered peace and prosperity to Asaba, which has attracted people from Nigeria as a tourist destination, city of hospitality, entertainment and commerce.”
