CHIEF FRANK OVIE KOKORI IS GONE!
Former NUPENG Secretary General, Chief Frank Ovie Kokori, is gone deeper than divers into the high profundity of sleep.
He gave up the ghost at Mount Horeb Hospital in Warri, Delta State, in the early hours of Thursday, 7th December, at the ripe age of 80 years, after struggling with kidney disease.
Management of Horeb Hospital, and the Personal Assistant to the late elder statesman confirmed the incident on Thursday.
Chief Kokori, who hails from Ovu in Agbon Kingdom, Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State, shall be remembered for union activism, and his enviable roles in the struggle for the actualization of June 12 Presidential election, believed to have been won by late Chief M.K.O Abiola.
It will be recalled that His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, Rt Hon (Elder) Sheriff F.O. Oborevwori, was at Mount Horeb hospital to see Chief Kokori, wherein he took care of the entire hospital bills to guarantee maximum healthcare and treatment for the departed unionist and politician of high repute.
Unfortunately, the kidney had been badly damaged before the news got to Governor Oborevwori, and after his intervention, Doctors at the hospital did the needful to save the life of Chief Kokori, but to no avail. It was too late. He’s gone!
May his kind and gentle soul rest in perfect peace, Amen.
