Secretary to Delta State Government (SSG), Comrade Ovuozorie Macaulay, has described Mr. Tony Chuks Obuh as a near perfect gentleman who served the state diligently and qualified to be governor, adding he has all it takes to manage a complex state as a state.

Macaulay who is also the Supervisory Coordinator, Isoko Federal Constituency, Project Obuh 2015, said Obuh “always discharged his responsibilities with smiles on his face,” noting that “he is someone you can trust with great responsibilities while you sleep, never tired and one without complaints.”

He was speaking Sunday at Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church, Agbor, for a thanksgiving mass for the voluntary retirement as Permanent Secretary from Delta State civil service after 32 years of meritorious service by Mr. Tony Obuh.

Macaulay, who was Obuh’s immediate boss until his retirement, described him as a dependable man, intelligent and full of initiatives and prayed to God to lead him aright.

In his remarks, Mr. Obuh, who is one of those aspiring to succeed Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, said what appears to be an impossible mission is ending graciously after 32 years. He said that he started the civil service in the then Bendel State as an administrative officer, emphasising that civil service work gave him a new attitude to life and people, shaped and moulded him and challenged him with responsibilities that made him strong.

The veteran civil servant lauded Governor Uduaghan for the opportunity given him to serve, which had made him finish strong, saying that he remained grateful to various Heads of Service under whom he served as they impacted positively on his life.

While saying that he is in the open market, he solicited for total support for his next level of work, thanking God for finishing strong and for all that had happened to his life and family.

Rev. Fr. Joseph Ugboh during the sermon said there is dignity in labour and fulfillment for those that work actively in building for the kingdom of God on earth. Consulting God through thanksgiving, the priest said there is the need to put God first and God he noted cannot disappoint those that called on Him.

Rev. Ugboh promised that the church would continue to pray for the state and for Tony Obuh as he continues with his consultations to be the next governor of Delta State.

In addition to Comrade Ovuozorie Macaulay, other eminent personalities that graced the event included the wife of the State Governor, Deaconess Roli Nere Uduaghan; Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Peter Onwusanya; State Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Peter Nwaoboshi; wife of Head of Service Delta State, Mrs. Evuarherhe, Deputy Speaker, Rt. Hon. Basil Ganagana; and Chief of Staff, Government House, Dr. Festus Okubor. Others were members of the State House of Assembly, commissioners, retired Heads of Service, permanent secretaries and various chieftains of the PDP.
