Delta State Governor, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa, has charged chairmen and members of Governing Councils of institutions of higher learning and boards of parastatals to work harmoniously with their managements to ensure that the desired results were achieved.

Governor Okowa gave the charge yesterday in Asaba while inaugurating Governing Councils of Delta State College of Physical  Education, Mosogar which has Dr. Amos Ighorodje as Chairman, Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi Uku (Chairman, Dr Festus Okubor); Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe-Oghara (Chairman, Chief Andrew Asawota); Delta State Colleges of Education, Agbor (Chairman, Chief Emmanuel Onyeukwu); Delta State College of Education, Warri (Prof. Samuel Aghalino and that of  Institute of Continuing Education, Asaba (Chief Champion Kpateghe, Chairman).

The inaugurated Boards and their chairmen were Delta Broadcasting Service, Asaba (Mr Ifeanyi Osuoza); Delta State Waste Management Board (Ogbueshi Douglas Okolotu); Urban Water Board, (Mr J. T. Government); Rural Water Supply/Sanitation Agency (Chief Ochuko Unuagba); and the Delta State Primary Health Care Development Agency (Dr Richard Kofi).

According to Governor Okowa, “The government and ultimately, the people who elected or appointed to serve, stand to benefit when the relationship between Councils cum Boards and management is devoid of tension, competition and turf battles; the relationship does not always have to lead to bitter quarrels.”

While stating that the wisdom that is required is not to know how to draw the lines of authority and work for the synergy essential for the stability of the organisation, Governor Okowa emphasised that appointees should be concerned about long term socio-economic development and the general well being of the people.

“Members must learn to operate within the limits of their authority, recognising and accepting the difference between oversight and management; the principle of mutual submission is, therefore, imperative and must be embraced by all,” Governor Okowa advised.

While congratulating those who were inaugurated, the Governor insisted that they should provide exemplary leadership, offer insight on the organisations’ budgetary priorities and demand compliance with legal and government policy requirements at state and federal levels.

He specifically urged the governing council of Colleges of Education, Agbor and Warri to speed up the process of appointing substantive Provosts for the institutions as stipulated by law.

Responding on behalf of the appointees, Dr Festus Okubor, commended the policy direction of Governor Okowa’s administration, stating: “We feel honoured to share in your dreams and vision for our state, we will do everything possible within our capacity to ensure that your SMART agenda is pursued vigorously to achieve success and we will not do anything to bring embarrassment to your government.”
