    The Governor said, “On behalf of my family, the government, and people of Delta, I commiserate with my dear brother and friend, Valentine Ozigbo, and the entire Ozigbo dynasty of Amesi in Aguata Local Government Area over the passing of their patriarch, Chief Andrew Ozigbo.

    “Chief Ozigbo lived a remarkable and fulfilled life as a foremost educationist and was always a role model for many in the society.

    “As a Headmaster and later, Principal, Chief Ozigbo was a great disciplinarian and teacher of immense repute, who molded the lives of many Anambra people during his years in service.

    “As a devout Christian, he was reported to have religiously attended morning mass until his passing.

    “Chief Ozigbo would be remembered for his phenomenal and outstanding contributions to God and the education sector.”

    The governor prayed to God Almighty to grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
