Oborevwori said, “On behalf of the government and people of Delta, I mourn the passing of a gentleman and grassroot politician, Chief Charles Ufuoma Obule, who died on Tuesday evening.

“The news of his passing was a terrible shock to me. He was a gentleman-politician, and he distinguished himself in the service of his people as a great philanthropist.

“Chief Obule was a versatile lawyer, prominent businessman and astute politician who excelled in all that he did. He was a humanist par excellence.
