Minister of State, Budget and National Planning, Clem Agba has expressed shock over the demise of business mogul and Chairman of Ocean Marine Solution (OMS), Captain Idohosa Wells Okunbor.
“I received with shock the news of the sudden demise of an incomparable human being, Captain Hosa Wells OKunbo,” Agba said in a statement he personally signed on Sunday.
Agba added: “The passage of Capt Hosa is a painful loss not only to us in Edo State but the country at large. His death has created a huge vacuum that will be difficult to fill.
“Mr. Hosa made a very huge difference to the lives of countless people by his philanthropy. Despite his wealth, his humility, selflessness, strength of spirit and deep sense of purpose made him a national icon, a revered symbol of humanity, and a source of inspiration to many people.
“With his death, Edo people have lost one of its greatest sons. Our people have lost a colossus and a philanthropist par excellence. A guiding light has been extinguished; a philanthropic colossus no longer bestrides our world; but his legacy will live forever.”
