Leaders of the Okpe nation on Sunday described Delta State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Monday Ovwigho Igbuya as one of the best things to have ever happened to Sapele.
They also praised the presiding officer of the Delta State House of Assembly for building the people and the area.
In a statement signed by the chairman of Amukpe Community, Hon. Godday Okpako and General Secretary, Mr. Francis Idonoro, the leaders commended Igbuya for the tremendous contributions he has made towards the development of the community.
“Rt. Hon. Monday Igbuya is a man of dignity, wisdom and compassion. His leadership style has brought smiles to the faces of the people in Amukpe” the leaders said.
Apart from addressing burning issues on the floor of the House, the leaders listed the drainage to River Ethiope, construction of blocks of classroom at Ovwore Primary School, Ibada-Amukpe, good road network and empowerment of the people as areas that distance Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and Igbuya from other politicians in the country.
The leaders who did a thorough appraisal of the current administration, congratulated Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and Rt. Hon Monday Igbuya for their achievements, particularly in executing development programmes and opportunities to the grassroots level of the state.
They advised those resorting to ill-directed propaganda to look for better things to do.
“Rt. Hon. Monday Igbuya is a pragmatic planner. He sees politics as service. As local government chairman, Igbuya was bent on ensuring that Sapele would turn a better place than it was. He wasted no time in evolving policies and programmes for the transformation of the area into a progressive political entity”.
“The people’s Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has within a short but challenging period re-directed the faith of our great state and given Deltans the renewed hope for unity, peace and economic prosperity “ the leaders added.
