The governorship aspiration of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa received a boost at the weekend, as Urhovie Community Development Initiative in Delta State declared its support for him.

The declaration was made at Abraka,the state’s University town, when the group, led by its president, Cyril Okposio Cyril and secretary general,Omomaife Aghogho at a rally held in support of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.

Speaking on behalf of the Initiative, the president said the call has become necessary to appreciate and commend Senator Okowa for his numerous empowerment efforts since his days as commissioner and Secretary to the State Government (SSG) in Delta State.

“We primarily conveyed a meeting in Abraka where we resolved to support and mobilise for Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, who on different occasions has extended assistance to his constituency and the entire state. He is a man who believes in the welfare of the downtrodden in the society. He has continued to identify with all Deltans inspite of ethnic background.

“We want someone who has great leadership qualities and experience to pilot the affairs of our state and to help develop our community that has lacked basic amenities,and from the list of those candidates, Okowa stands tall.
