The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Monday Ovwigho Igbuya, on Wednesday described the performance of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as impressive and inspiring.
“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has distinguished himself as a dynamic, articulate and vibrant governor. I am proud of his achievements” he said.
Fielding questions from journalists in Ugborhen, Sapele Local Government Area, Igbuya said that apart from carrying out peoples oriented programmes, Governor Okowa has an open agenda and therefore one cannot help but admire him.
Igbuya praised Okowa for his simplicity and forthrightness.
“Democracy is alive in Delta State. Thanks to the cooperation and understanding between the executive and the legislature” he said.
He acknowledged the efforts of the governor in the development of the state.
‘Since May 2015, Delta State has grown from strength to strength under the leadership of Governor Okowa. Where should I start from? Is it provision of critical infrastructures or paying salaries? Is it empowerment of large number of Deltans? Is it high standards in management of public finances? Governor Okowa has set standards for governors in the country” he said.
The lawmaker stated: “Okowa has demonstrated that there is nothing as good as a leader writing his name in gold in the hearts of the people by keeping faith with them”.
The presiding officer of the Delta State House of Assembly expressed support for the clamour for Governor Okowa’s second term.
“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has so far performed creditably and the people of Sapele will continue to support his laudable programmes. We shall reciprocate this visit in 2019”.
Igbuya also commended the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company Limited, Seplat and the leaders of Ugborhen for the peace in the community and the projects commissioned by Governor Okowa.
“Corporate social responsibility (CRS) is a creative opportunity for companies to fundamentally strengthen their businesses while contributing to society at the same time. The role of Seplat in addressing some of the most serious development challenges common to many communities is unique and genuine. Seplat and Ugborhen community have been developing excellent relationship”.
“I am certain that these projects will contribute further to the development of Ugborhen” he added.
