The Warri South Local Government Chapter of Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE, has condoled with Secretary to Warri South Local Government, Mr. Joseph Oribioye, who lost his father and mother under six days, saying: We (the union leadership and other staffers of the Council) have found your (SLG) style very interesting. You connect very well with us, as civil servants”.


Chairman of NULGE, Warri South, Comrade Raymond Emiko, made the remarks Thursday September 23, when he led members of the Union’s executive and departmental representatives on a condolence visit to Mr. Joseph Oribioye at his office in Warri South Council Main Secretariat, Warri in Delta State.


Fresh Angle International understands that Mr. Oribioye, a second-term Secretary to Warri South Local Government, lost his mother, Mrs. Evelyn Oribioye at the age of 76, on Friday September 10, while Mr. Joseph Oribioye’s father, Pa. Williams Oribioye also died Wednesday September 15, at the age of 92.


Comrade Emiko, who opined that the departed Pa. and Mrs. Oribioye, lived good life as evident in the public service of Secretary to Warri South Local Government, Mr. Joseph Oribioye, assured: “You (Mr. Joseph Oribioye) have put in your all and all, the efforts your late parents made are not in vain. In this time of grief, the entire staff of Warri South Council, are with you”.


In his response, Mr. Joseph Oribioye, stated: “I am humbled that you (the union) came to console me on the demise of my parents. If anyone had told me it would happen this way, I would have doubted. My mother died 10th and father 15th. It has been a very painful and sad experience. Doing my official schedule daily, calms my tension. I still wish to have them as my parents. I am very proud of them. I am very grateful for the assurance you have given me today. We don't intend to keep our parents in the mortuary for long. In no distant time, we will communicate the date of their burial. We will celebrate them together. You people have treated me as one of yours and have been kind to me as well”.


The union leadership, also paid condolence visit to one of their colleagues in the Council’s Environment Department, Mrs. Alero Oke, who is sibling to Mr. Joseph Oribioye.
