Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Deltans to give Governor Ifeanyi Okowa the opportunity to continue with his good works in the state by voting for him in 2019.

Chief Obasanjo made the call on Monday while commissioning series of landmark projects executed by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration in the state.

Some of the projects commissioned include the dualised old Lagos/Asaba road, from Emuhu junction to Agbor-Obi junction, the dualised Owei-Ekei/Owa-Alero road, from old Lagos/Asaba road to Owa-Alero round about and the main bowl of the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.

“As an elder statesman, whatever I see and heard, my mouth will talk about; where I came from, we are always looking for good things and when we have good things, we hold on to it; when you have good leaders, hold on to them; this governor (Ifeanyi Okowa) from what I have seen and from what I have heard, he is a good product and when you have a good product, you don’t throw it away, I know that this governor is a good governor, I will hold on to him because he has started well and we must give him the opportunity to consolidate on his good works,” Chief Obasanjo said at the commissioning of Owa-Ekei/Owa-Alero Road.

“The people of Delta State should not throw away a good product, better make good use of the opportunity you have, Governor Okowa is my brother, the performing Governor of Delta State and he is following with good steps,” he further said.

At the commissioning of old Lagos/Asaba Road, Agbor, the former President said: “I want to congratulate all of you in Delta State for the progress you have achieved, we should continue to achieve progress through what God has given to us through the instrumentality of Governor Okowa.

“I am from the part of the world where if you have a good thing, you don’t change it because, the known is better, you don’t change the known for the unknown, and Governor Okowa is the known and he is working.”

Governor Okowa in his speech, thanked the former President for coming to the state to commission projects, disclosing that the projects executed by his administration dots different parts of Delta State, including riverine communities that were described as difficult terrains before his emergence as Governor.

The Chairman of Delta State Traditional Rulers Council, who is also the Obi of Owa, HRM Emmanuel Efeizomor II, had thanked Obasanjo for coming to the state to commission projects. “Our son, Governor Okowa, has done very well, it is a fact that all the governors that ruled Delta State did two terms, Governor Okowa cannot be an exception, we should rally round him for him to complete eight years as Governor,” he stated.

Chairman of Ika South Local Government Area, Hon. Victor Okoh, and his counterpart in Ika North-East, Hon. Victor Ebonka, observed that Governor Okowa has done very well to touch the lives of the people positively.
