Late Senator Francis Okpozo


The Leader of Delta State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Olorogun Otega Emerhor, OON has described late Senator Francis Okpozo as a great nationalist and one of the key foundation members of the party in 2013.

He said in a condolence message to the Okpozo family that "it is with great shock that I received the sudden passing away of Senator Francis Spanner Okpozo. A great nationalist, a renowned stateman in Delta State and an Icon in Isoko land, Senator Okpozo has been a leading light and a grand commander in the camp of the Progressives in Delta State for ages.

"He played major roles in the progressives' near victories of DPP that were stolen in 2010 and 2011. He was a key foundation member of the APC in 2013 and a pillar of support for my senatorial candidacy in 2014 and Governorship candidacy in 2015.

"A grand father and Elder of the APC in Delta, it is unfortunate that he died when the Delta APC house is in the final stretch of full reconciliation; an ideal of his life long struggle. We, in Delta APC will missed him sorely. We pray that his death will spur those of us left behind to honor him with a final unity.

"My sincere condolences go first to his immediate family, the APC family in Delta State, the Isoko nation, Delta State and the Nigerian nation.

"I pray God for the repose of his departed soul in the bossom of the Lord. Amen."

APC Delta will do the needful in collaboration with the deceased family to ensure a befitting burial for our elder stateman and patriotic Nigerian, the statement added.

Signed:

Olorogun O'tega Emerhor, OON 
Leader, Delta State APC and 2015 Governorship candidate.
