Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta has urged leaders in the North Senatorial district in the state to consolidate unite and support his administration to achieve greater result.

Okowa made the call on Monday in Asaba when leaders and elders of the area also known as ‘Anioma’ paid him a solidarity visit.

“Once the leaders are united every other person in the state will be united and this will help to attract more development to the state and Nigeria at large.”

He also advised the leaders to encourage youths in the state to ensure peace and security, adding that ``it is only when there is peace and security that investors will be attracted to the state.

“The issue of insecurity is a great challenge facing the country today; a lot of kidnapping and clashes between Fulani herdsmen and communities are going on in the country.

“This is not peculiar to the South-South region, it is also happening in the Northern part of the country.”

Okowa urged local government council chairmen to educate their people on the need to be careful with the herdsmen to avoid attacks and reprisals.

He also stressed the need to diversify the economy of the state from oil, saying “and if this must happen, we must keep our communities safe and secured for investors to come in.”

Speaking on behalf of the people, the senator representing the area at the Senate, Peter Nwaoboshi, thanked the people of the state for their support to the governor.

Nwaoboshi assured the governor of their support, adding “we the people of Anioma have no doubt of your ability.” (NAN)
