Mr. Dennis Otu, Oborevwori’s Chief Press Secretary, said the news of the former Senator’s death came as a shock to him and urged the approximation of the late Senator’s footprints.
“The death of Senator Patrick Osakwe is a big blow not only to his immediate family but to all Deltans in particular and Nigerians in general,” said the Speaker, who is also the Deputy National Chairman of the Nigerian Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures. He died at a crucial point in his career, when his vast knowledge was needed the most. He will be sorely missed by all of us.

Oborevwori asked for more prayers for God’s comforting arms to be extended to his family and friends, as well as for his soul’s repose.
