Top Management Staff and Board members of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC) led by their Chairman, Hon. Evang. Michael Diden alias Ejele recently paid visit to the family of Late Joyce Overah Commissioner representing Urhobo Nationality on the Board of DESOPADEC at his new road residence to condole with his wife, children and close family members.
In his brief speech during the visit, DESOPADEC Managing Director/CEO, Bashorun (Hon.) Askia Ogieh said that when they received the news of the death, himself and some top management staff quickly travelled to Sapele for confirmation and promised members of the family that they will come back for an official visit which they have just done.
On his part, Chairman of DESOPADEC, Hon. (Evang.) Michael Diden stated that they are going to miss the presence of Late Overah because according to him, the Late Overah was not only their colleague but their brother and a member of Delta Political Vanguard with Governor Okowa as their leader.
He appealed to members of the family to carry them along when planning for the burial so that they can help in giving their departed colleague a befitting burial.
The Chairman also pleaded with the children and members of the immediate family to take the death in good faith as it is the will of God Almighty.
Responding, younger brother of the deceased, Mr. Raymond Overah while thanking the DESOPADEC team for the visit appealed for assistance so that they can give their brother a befitting burial as well as assist in taking care of the two wives and children which Late Overah left behind.
The Ejele team also visited the second wife of Late Overah at Ogbimi Drive in Sapele where they also commiserated with the wife and children.
