Former governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori, on Wednesday, wept after he paid a condolence visit to the family of his long-time friend and political ally, late D.S.P Alamieyeseigha in Amassoma, Bayelsa State.
Ibori who was accompanied on the visit by political leaders and stakeholders from Delta State including the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Monday Igbuya described Alamieyeseigha as a patriotic leader who was very courageous and outspoken and stood on the side of his people at all times.
He said he was devastated when news of his death got to him in the United Kingdom as they both shared a common ideology and relationship which was very deep and added that Alamieyeseigha until his demise fought against oppression and evil which ultimately led to his untimely death.
While sympathizing with the family of the departed Governor-General of the Ijaw Nation, Ibori urged them to take solace in the fact that he was a good man who will forever be remembered by his legacies and also the reality that what he believed in will not die.
The former Delta State Governor who equally took time to visit the grave side of the departed Alamieyeseigha assured the family that he will always remember and stand by them as their father and son would have done same for his family.
