Finding ways to strengthen the foundation of the unity of the divergent ethnic groups in Delta State, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has inaugurated a 30-man Advisory and Peace Building Council with a charge on them to strengthen it.

The Council has “power to study the general socio-economic and political situations in the state and render advice to government; advise on issues that can lead to healthy relationship between the executive arm of Government, the Legislature and the Judiciary; carry out in-depth studies and render advice on issues which can strengthen harmonious relationship with the Federal Government and other states of the Federation.”

Speaking during the inauguration of the Council in Asaba on Wednesday, the Governor said the Council, which has just been created, is an improvement on the Delta State Advisory Council that had been in existence since the year 2000.

He explained that the new advisory council has been repositioned in line with global trends in conflict prevention, conflict resolution, and transformation, as well as post-conflict reconciliation and peace management.
