Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State, Friday, visited ailing elder statesman and erstwhile General Secretary of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Chief Frank Kokori at an undisclosed hospital in Warri.

Oborevwori visited the hospital after information reached him that the senior citizen was ill.

The Governor who also paid hospital bills for two other patients, Nnadi Silas and Adenusi Michael at the hospital, said despite their political differences he would ensure Chief Kokori was given the due attention he deserves as an illustrious elder statesman from the state.

He said: “I know people will think that because he is an APC chieftain I won’t be here, Deltans voted for me as Governor. It is not a party matter now because we have finished election and all of us are one.
