Delta State‎ Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has described the Death of President Goodluck Jonathan’s Special Adviser on Research, Documentation and Strategy, Oronto Natei Douglas as “a devastating personal loss.”

Speaking via a statement issued by Felix Ofou his Press Secretary, Governor Uduaghan said the Douglas’ loss would be very hard to replace.

Speaking further, Governor Uduaghan regretted that Douglas died in his prime, especially now when the country would have benefited from his knowledge and uncommon wisdom.

He said: “I can’t believe that Oronto – that’s what we all call him is gone. I refuse to use the word dead. I’m very disturbed that such a brilliant mind, articulate strategist and friend has been struck down‎. It is even more painful that this has happened when the nation would have benefited from his vast knowledge and depth of wisdom.”

“I can tell you that he played a major role in ensuring that governors of the Niger Delta region maintained a cordial and close relationship with the Presidency. He was an unrelenting advocate of peace and justice. A bridge builder who wanted the progress of his boss at all times.

“It is a sad day for Delta State, for the Niger Delta and Nigeria. It is a personal loss for me, my family and everyone that has had a close encounter with him. Oronto Douglas will be greatly missed.”
