OrderPaperToday- The confirmation of Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa’s election by the Governorship Election Appeal Tribunal Thursday has been described as the best Christmas gift to Deltans.
Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Mr. Monday Igbuya stated this in a congratulatory message to Okowa for his victory at the Court of Appeal.
Igbuya praised the judiciary for remaining the “bastion of democracy and the hope of the electorate, especially the good people of Delta State.”
“This is the best Christmas gift to Delta State and Deltans” he said in a statement issued in Sapele signed by his spokesman, Henry Ebireri.
“Your victory at the Court of Appeal shows that God and the people of Delta State clearly approved your candidature,” the speaker said.
Igbuya who praised the governor for the repositioning of the economy, rehabilitation of infrastructure and creation of jobs for the teeming youths in the state, enjoined Mr. Great Ogboru and Olorogun O’tega Emerhor to support Governor Okowa, a man of distinction and great responsibility, in transforming the state.
“Okowa’s leadership goes beyond the incredible speed and cost of providing critical infrastructure, prompt payment of salaries to workers and benefits to pensioners, encouragement of constructive criticisms, tolerance of the opposition, creating conducive environment for business to thrive and jobs for the people” he said.
The speaker, who also affirmed his total support to Okowa on his quest to develop the state, not only thanked the people for supporting the governor but extended Christmas greetings to them.
“I appeal for patience and understanding and wish to once more assure you of our sincerity of purpose and determination to deliver the Delta State of our dreams” he said.
