These were the words from Benedict Ogio, the son of the late vice regal who died in office.
“Our late father was a simple man and lived an educationist and a political figure, his home was for anyone who needed help,” Benedict read in the eulogy.
Sir Michael Ogio served the country’s public service as a teacher, provincial and national politician for 37 years.
He was born on July 7, 1942 as the only child in the family.
