Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori has urged Nigerians to imbibe the virtues of faithfulness, honesty and contentment in their contributions to nation-building.
Oborevwori gave the charge on Friday at the funeral service for late businessman and renowned politician, Chief Charles Obule at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Sapele.
Oborevwori said the late Obule was a household name in Sapele and Delta because of his philanthropic deeds and urged Nigerians to emulate his kind gesture in helping mankind with their God-given resources.
He eulogised the late Chief Obule as a distinguished lawyer, astute businessman, renowned politician and great philanthropist who was passionate about the welfare of his people.
He said: “I am standing here with mix feelings because the late Chief Charles Obule lived a life of faithfulness, honesty and contentment.
“Obule has lived well at 65, because some people will live longer but with no legacy to show but Chief Obule lived a life of great accomplishments.
“Obule was a homeboy he took a decision to come and settle in Sapele, he left all his businesses and came here to establish schools and hospital. He was a good man who did great things that he would be remembered for.
“There is no better time to die but the good thing is that when you die you should have legacies that people will remember you for.
“Touch lives while you are alive, some people will have money and they will be proud but Chief Obule was never a proud man. He lived a very good and fulfilled and contented life,” he said.
He described the late Obule as a faithful party man who never left the PDP despite his inability to secure an elective position in the party.
“Chief Obule was a very faithful man, he was very consistent with the party despite not winning the Governorship and Senatorial ticket of the party.
“On behalf of the state government, we commiserate with you, Mrs Obule, your children and the entire family on the loss of your husband.
“Our prayer is for God to grant you and your family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” Oborevwori stated.
