Late Osaguona Ogie, who died at the age of 62 years, is the twin brother of Secretary to Edo State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq.

Reiterating the need to live a fulfilling life in service to others, the governor charged, “I urge you all to live a life of giving and impact because death cannot be prayed away. All that matters in life is for one to live well and affect the lives of people positively.”

In his homily from Revelation 14: 3, the Parish Priest of St. Paul Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Edwin Omorogbe, said, “I urge parishioners to live well and affect souls for we don’t know when death will visit us. No amount of prayers can be offered to prevent or stop death. We should live life to touch and affect people positively like our late brother has done. Death is a temporal separation, not a permanent separation.”

He described the late Osaguona Ogie as “a man of knowledge, an employer of labour and devout Christian who lived a life of sacrifice. He lived a good life full of joy and happiness.”
