Ijaw Foundation Inc Condoles the Families of Late Col. Godfrey A.

The entire Ijaw Nation grief over  the demise of Col. Okoro   We urge the family, friends and entire Ijaw nation to take heart as God alone has answers to anything that befalls us at any time.   No doubt the sudden passing to glory of Col Okoro is a great loss to Ijaw Nation at a time when his services and experiences is very well needed.  We take solace in the fact that he lived a good life which positively impacted on our people. He was a great man who committed his life for peace, unity, love and emancipation of the Ijaw race.    We pray God Almighty to  continue to comfort the  family he has left behind and entire Ijaw Nation.   May his gentle and kind soul forever know peace!   Signed:   Dr. Rueben Jaja -  Chairman,  Ijaw Foundation.  Dr. Ransom Douglas - Secretary, Ijaw Foundation

Our Dear Bros,

We salute you as you would have clocked 67 years today 2-April-2015!

We may not have realized the full potential of the legacy you left behind, the Ijaw Nation Forum but surely it has continued to provide a rallying point towards the ultimate objective of a united Ijaw Race. 

“Col” you are surely missed. For me, memories of your infectious smile and laughter every time we are gisted will never go off my mind.

Continue to rest in peace!
Ben
