Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has said that the elder statesman and former Secretary-General of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, Chief Frank Kokori has written his name in gold in his service to our fatherland
In a special congratulatory message personally signed by him to mark Kokori’s 76th birthday, Omo-Agege described the firebrand activist as a worthy ambassador not only of his home state, Delta, but also of Nigeria.
According to the lawmaker, Kokori has distinguished himself in the various capacities he has served the country.
He recalled how the former scribe of NUPENG fought for the enthronement of democracy and was detained for years by military governments.
“You have led a remarkable life that is great in accomplishments. Through diligence and hard work, you served with distinctions for many years and in different capacities.
“You are one of the shining lights of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Delta State in particular and Nigeria as a whole and we will continue to tap from your wealth of experience. Your lifelong commitment to the populist cause and progressive ideology of the All Progressives Congress is visible to us all.
“While I thank you for your strong leadership and friendship, please accept my best wishes, not only on this milestone but for the important contributions you have made to our state and country.
“And as you celebrate your birthday, may you be surrounded by the warmth of happy memories,” he stressed.
While calling on the youth to emulate him for his hard work, diligence and patriotism, Omo-Agege prayed to God to continue to preserve his life.
