Governor Okowa said that such townhall meetings are important to enable government hear directly from the people.

“We shall soon embark on townhall meetings which will commence from May 9, starting with the two Isoko local government areas. This tour is very important to us because it will enable us appraise ourselves and talk to the people directly and also hear from them on the policies and programmes of government,” the Governor said.

Okowa thanked the people of the district for their prayers and contributions to the peace that has returned in the area. “I thank you for recognising the little we have done despite the economic recession. By the grace of God we will continue to do more especially as peace has returned to our oil producing communities,” he said.

On local government council elections, the Governor cautioned aspirants to exercise restraint and await directives from the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission, DSIEC assuring

“When the time for election comes, we will ensure a free and fair election,” he said.
