Uduaghan, in a statement issued by Felix Ofou, his Press Secretary in Lagos State, also described the news of Ogbodo’s death as a “cruel shock” that will take a long time for journalists and politicians to overcome, while noting that the late journalist will be greatly missed for the candor, resilience and uncommon sense of duty that he attached to his job while alive

Speaking at Silverbird ‘Man of the Year 2012’ award held Thursday night in Lagos State where two Deltans bagged awards, Uduaghan said it was unfortunate that decades after a Niger Delta activist, Isaac Adaka Boro, brought to the consciousness of the world the injustice being suffered by the people of the Niger Delta region, the situation was yet to be resolved

Uduaghan disclosed that it would be difficult for the state government to raise N10 billion for the reconstruction of infrastructures and resettlement of flood victims and promised to send the report to the Alhaji Aliko Dangote-led national committee on flood disaster as well as the National Emergency Management Agency for study
