The statement, issued on Wednesday in Asaba, te state capital, reads: “On behalf of the Government and people of Delta State, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa warmly felicitates with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, as he turns 51 years.

“Governor Okowa joins the National Assembly, friends and family of the charismatic Speaker in celebrating 51 years of remarkable achievements and service to mankind.

“The Governor extols Dogara’s humility, simplicity and discipline in providing unblemished leadership for the lower house for over three years by creating a harmonious atmosphere for debates and passing of bills.

“Governor Okowa affirms that the Speaker’s personal attributes of selflessness, maturity and friendliness have contributed immensely to the relationship between the Executive and the Legislature, resulting in the passage of bills that have direct impact on Nigerians.

“Recalling his personal interactions with the Speaker, and having followed his political trajectory in the House of Representatives, Governor Okowa believes Nigeria’s future is bright with exemplary leaders like Speaker Dogara.
