The Governor of Delta State, Sheriff Oborevwori, on Friday, visited the former General Secretary of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Frank Kokori, in a hospital in Warri.
Oborevwori’s visit comes after reports that Kokori had been abandoned.
Speaking during the visit, the Delta State Governor assured that the State Government would do everything possible to assist Kokori in getting quality treatment.
He noted that the elder statesman deserved the support of the State Government, having paid his dues for good governance for the nation at large.
Oborevwori said: “I know people will think that because he is an APC chieftain I won’t be here, Deltans voted for me as Governor. It is not a party matter now because we have finished the election and all of us are one.
“Whether he is APC or not, I’m Governor for all Deltans, so I’m here as Governor for all, not for any party.”
Vox9ja gathered that the Governor cleared the hospital bills of two other patients, Nnadi Silas and Adenusi Michael, at the hospital.
Kokori, in his response, commended Governor Oborevwori for treating him well, irrespective of his political leanings.
He said, “I never knew Governor Oborevwori is a good man because immediately he heard about my condition, he came to see me.
“He wasn’t close to me, it is Great Ogboru and Ovie Omo-Agege and co that are close to me so am so happy that he is not a mean fellow.
“He is a real Governor, a man who has such a heart is a good man and I have told him certain things privately how he will make his name in the history of Nigeria.
