Governor Okowa mourns as Delta Chief Judge loses wife

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has expressed his deep condolences to the family of the Chief Judge of Delta State, Justice Marshall Umukoro over the death of his wife, Lizzy.

The governor’s condolence message is contained in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Aniagwu, in Asaba on Saturday.

Mr. Aniagwu described Mrs. Umukoro’s death as a great loss not only to the family but the state in general, given her invaluable contributions to the cause of humanity.

He noted that the deceased was a dedicated and dignified woman whose support and contribution to the family had in no small way impacted positively on the husband’s illustrious career in the judiciary.

Governor Okowa paid glowing tribute to Mrs Umukoro for being a good mother and urged the family to take solace in the fact that the late matriarch made enormous contribution to the successes achieved by her husband culminating in his emergence as the Chief Judge of Delta State.

“The late Mrs Lizzy Umukoro was a quintessential mother, devout Christian who devoted her lifetime to the service of God and humanity,” the governor said.

“On behalf of the government and people of Delta State, I commiserate with His Lordship, the Chief Judge of Delta State Justice Marshall Umukoro over the painful loss of his beloved wife, Mrs Lizzy Umukoro.”

He called on the bereaved family to uphold the cherished ideals of community service, kindness and generosity associated with the late Mrs Umukoro and prayed the Almighty God to grant repose to her soul, and give the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, the entire Delta State judiciary on the irreparable loss of this selfless and patriotic woman,” he said.

The Governor prayed God to grant her eternal rest.
