Now in his early nineties, Chief Gordon Mukoro is still firm in his steps. However, his eye-sight is impaired. Here Chief Johnson Barovbe (left) escorts this famous former Under-Secretary of Urhobo Progress Union during the era of Chief T. E. A. Salubi to the awards platform. His son, a lecturer at Delta State University, Abraka, follows behind.
