Tompolo Visits Gbagi’s Family, Expresses Shock Over ex-Minister’s Death



Late Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi

High Chief Dr. Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo has paid condolence visit to the family of Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi, expressing shock and dismay over the death of the former Minster of State for Education and former Governorship Candidate of the Social Democratic Party, SDP in the 2023 general elections in Delta State.

Tompolo who was represented by his aide, Dr. Paul Bebenimibo, paid a condolence visit to the family at Oginibu, Ughelli South local government area of Delta State on Wednesday.

He said that the death of the business mogul was sudden and untimely, as he had his good intentions in developing Delta State in particular and Nigeria in general.

According to him, the deceased was a good man who always sought the interest of others above his interest.


“He was a strict and disciplinarian but was misunderstood by a section of the society. He came, saw, and left quietly. Indeed, God gave and it was God that allowed him to go and rest at this time. We will surely miss him,” he said.

Tompolo further told the family members to take solace in God since “their father, brother and grandfather, was able to do his best for God and mankind before his death”.

Responding, one of Olorogun Kenneth Gbagi’s sons, Egba Gbagi who spoke on behalf of the family members, thanked Tompolo for finding time to visit the family in their trying time. The family promised to inform him(Tompolo) when the date of the burial ceremony is fixed.
