Reports suggest that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State collapsed just as he was about attending the World Teachers Day celebration at the cenotaph on Wednesday 28 September 2016.
According to a source who spoke with New York-based news outfit, Sahara Reporters,
“I can tell you categorically that since that Wednesday till today the governor has not attended any public function.
“If you watch well, all the public functions, it’s the deputy that is representing him. Though, we can’t tell why he slumped and the illness he is suffering from.
“Before becoming the state governor, he has been battling with unknown health challenges.
“Even when he was in the senate, he was with this unknown illness but some people close to him said what he is suffering from could not be far from some blood related illness.”
