Delta State Governor-elect, Ifeanyi Okowa, has pledged to impact on the lives of Deltans.

He gave the assurance when he received in audience a delegation from the Asagba of Asaba, Obi Chike Edozien, who came to felicitate with him on his victory at the just concluded Delta State governorship election.

He said his major assignment as governor of Delta State is to bring development, peace and unity across the state, saying he would do his best to ensure that every section of the state was carried along and given its due recognition and attention.
While praising the Asagba for his sterling leadership qualities, which he had consistently displayed in projecting the interest of the Anioma people, Okowa reassured that he will always be guided by equity, fairness, transparency and the fear of God.
“We will be accountable to the good people of Delta State by partnering with the them in all areas to ensure all round performance. My promise to be governor of Delta State, and not just a section of the state will never be compromised. We will remain committed to the well being and prosperity of our people,” he reiterated.
Okowa, while thanking the Asagba for the visit, said his administration will not shy away from doing what is right and promised to give the state capital, Asaba, a befitting facelift, even as he assured of accelerated development across the state.
Earlier, the leader of the delegation, the Iyase of Asaba, Chief Patrick Onyeobi, assured Okowa, whom he described as the son of the palace, of the support of the Asagba and the people of Asaba, even as he thanked Deltans for voting Okowa in the April 11th governorship election.
Onyeobi, who was Secretary and Head of Service in the defunct Bendel State Government, while describing Okowa as a man of integrity, equity and justice, who has the requisite experience to govern the state, called on Deltans to continue to give him (Okowa) the needed support as he takes over the mantle of leadership of Delta State, even as he expressed hope that the governor-elect will do well in all sectors and also unite all Deltans.
