He recently revealed this while visiting the family of the deceased in Asaba, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the death has been very difficult for him to process because Tim was a very good friend and brother.
He added that the dead politician was definitely a good lawmaker who helped a lot to guarantee the unity of the House and in the passage of executive Bills.
His words, “This is one visit that is heart-breaking for me. Hon. Tim Owhefere was a true friend in politics and a true friend in governance.”
“He had sent a text message to me when he entered the ICU, saying ‘pray for me because I know when you pray for me, I will not die.”
“I prayed for him and sent a message of encouragement but there was no response. I was discussing his issue with the Chief Medical Director of the hospital not knowing that my dad had passed on two hours after Tim.”
“For my dad, he lived well and died at 88, but for Tim, he was still very strong and still had a lot to do, particularly in the government of Delta because beyond being a friend, many can attest that he was a stabiliser in the Delta State House of Assembly.”
“I have lost a true friend and as a state, we have lost one of the best legislative brains. But no matter how much we miss him, the pain in the family is worse, but can we truly question God?”
“He came into this world and made his very strong impact within the family circle, his home and his constituency and made a strong impact in the state. He had friends across the state and he contributed his quota to the development of the state.”
“Tim Owhefere lives on even when he is gone because the history of the state cannot be written without Tim Owhefere. The history of the Assembly and the stability we have cannot be properly written without a proper chapter dedicated to Tim Owhefere.”
“Life is like a market where people come in and go out. I have come to appeal to you to look up to God who is able to fill the gap. It can be very painful at the beginning but with time the pain heals.”
