A group, Okere Urhobo Network, has expressed the confidence that Delta State Governor-elect, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, will take state to a greater height.

The group stated this in a congratulatory message to Okowa, his deputy, Otuaro, and re-elected member of Warri South Constituency II, Delta State House of Assembly, Chief Dennis Oghenebukome Omovie.

The message was signed on behalf of the group by Dr. Paul Okumagba, a lecturer at the Delta State University, Abraka.

The group noted that the victory of the PDP candidates at the April 11 elections was a true reflection of the wish of Deltans, particularly the people of Okere Urhobo Kingdom of Warri.

The statement described the Governor-elect as an experienced  and a detribalised grassroots politician whose popularity cuts across ethnic barriers, “hence, he (Senator Okowa) was able to record a landslide victory at the polls”.
