Delta State Governor-elect, Ifeanyi Okowa, has assured the people of Delta State in South South Nigeria that his government is prepared to deliver developments that will directly impact on the lives of the people.

Okowa, who gave the assurance when he received 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, also said that he would run a government that would be accountable to the people of the state.

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.

“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.

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.

He 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.
