(By Chris K.Amadi) – The passing of Chief Fidelis Obi Odili,  elder brother of former governor of Rivers State, Dr. Peter Odili,  has made many Nigerians to recall the unique generosity of the former governor when he presided  over the affairs of Rivers State between 1999 and 2007.  Coming all the way from Nasarawa State was the Chairman of  Nasarawa State Council of Traditional Rulers and Emir of Lafia, Royal Highness, Hon. Justice Sidi Bage Muhammad 1 (rtd), who led Nasarawa State Council of Traditional Rulers  to commiserate with former Governor of Rivers State.


Emir of Lafia, who was accompanied by His Highness, Alhaji (Dr.) Ahmaou Aliyu, Andoma of Domia and the Chief of Staff to the Governor of Rivers State, Engineer Emeka Woke, stated this during a condolence visit to Dr. Odili in Port Harcourt on Friday. He described Dr. Odili as a very generous  personality,  and one of the best leaders that Nigeria has produced, adding  that whatever affects the former governor affects people all over the country.

His words: “We have come here to commiserate with you, to pass our condolences to you on behalf of all of our people, the people of Nasarawa state and our respective kingdoms.

“As one of the elders of this nation, very respectful elder of this nation, anything that affects you , Your Excellency, will touch us, will affect us. We ask you, Your Excellency, to take heart.”

He further continued: “You’re one of the best we have in this country. You’re very generous, hospitable. Your Excellency, not because you’re here, this is a statement of fact. You’re one of the best that this country has produced”, while observing that  the  monarchs and people of Nasarawa  State were saddened by the bereavement of the Odili family.

The Emir of Lafia, prayed God to grant the Odili’s family the fortitude to bear the loss of their beloved one, and to continue to keep Dr. Odili in good health so that he’ll continue all his good works for the nation.

Responding, Dr. Peter Odili, said he felt honoured by the condolence visit and words of encouragement by the Emir of Lafia, adding that  the visit has further demonstrated the importance the Emir attaches to his relationship with the people of Rivers State.
