Osinbajo spoke at the St Michael Anglican Church, Owa-Alero, Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State during the thanksgiving service to mark the celebration of life of Pa Okowa, the father of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State.

The event was also attended by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, governors and other top personalities across the federation.

Osinbajo said the late Pa Okowa was an outstanding teacher, pioneer educationist and committed public servant.

He noted that the story of educational development of many communities in Delta and Edo states would not be told without the mention of Pa Okowa.

According to him, a good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, adding that there is no doubt that Pa Okowa left an inheritance for his children’s children, community and the state.

Governor  Okowa said his father would have been 89 years today, but he passed on January 28.
