Secretary to Edo State Government, SSG Osarodion Ogie has lost his elder brother, John Ogie to COVID-19. The late Ogie, according to a statement by the state chapter of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP died of the dreaded virus Monday September 6, 2021.
The statement, signed by Chris Osa Nehikhare, state publicity secretary of the PDP, said the party received the news with shock and sadness.
Nehikhare described the late Ogie as “a dedicated, loyal and
committed member” of the party whose “counsel and organizational ability was a blessing, and added value to the development and growth of the party in not just ward 7 where he was a leader, but the whole of Ikpoba-Okha local government and by extension, Edo State”.
Commiserating with the SSG, the PDP urged him to stay strong “in this trying time”, and prayed that
God would grant the Ogie family, friends, associates, well wishers and members of PDP ward 7, Ikpoba-Okha, the fortitude to bear the “irreparable loss”.
The PDP used the opportunity to restate the need for all residents to get vaccinated against the corona virus.
