DELTA State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has described the death of his Special Adviser on Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Mr. Sunny Ofili, as “a loss too painful to bear”.

Uduaghan, accompanied by his deputy, Prof. Amos Utuama, and top government officials, visited the late Ofili’s family yesterday in Asaba.

Ofili and the traditional ruler of Issele-Uku, Obi Henry Ezeagwuna, died in a car crash.

The governor said: “He was a young man, who was active and dedicated to his duties. Sunny’s death is a personal loss to me. I know it is painful to the family. For us in the government, it is also painful. It is difficult to express one’s feelings because his death is a great loss to the state.”

He said the government would give the late Ofili a befitting burial.

Speaking for the family, Mr. Patrick Isichei thanked Uduaghan for his concern.

Isichei said the family had set up a planning committee and August 28 and 29 had been fixed for the funeral ceremony.

Utuama prayed for the family, the government and people of the state.

Colleagues, friends and relations have been signing the condolence register opened in honour of the late Ofili.

Mr Peter Mobuogwu wrote: “May the Lord give you a place of rest and peace in His kingdom. Rest in peace, gentleman.”
