Urhobo youths under the aegis of the Urhobo Youth Leaders Association (UYLA) have commended the people of Delta State for voting in Senator Ifeanyi Okowa as the state Governor.

In a statement the association’s National President, Francis Arhiyor and National Secretary, Comrade Vincent, congratulated Okowa on his victory as the Governor-elect at the polls “after a well articulated campaign across the nooks and crannies of the state”.

Okowa’s sweet victory, according to the group, was an affirmation of his popularity and acceptability across the various ethnic groups in Delta State.

While calling on all Deltans to support the in-coming government of Okowa to enable it achieve his prosperity agenda, the youths urged the Governor-elect to lead with the fear of God and bring dividends of democracy to every part of the state, adding that the association believes in the wealth of experience of Okowa in good governance to harmonise the different ethnic groups and move the state to the next level.
