An aspirant for the seat of Ughelli South in the Delta State House of Assembly, Chief Samson Okomitie Gordons, has described Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as the best in the history of the state since creation. This, he said, followed his “finesse” of human and material management.
The House of Assembly hopeful stated this when Okowa visited Otujeremi, headquarters of Ughelli South, on his campaign tour in preparation for the January 6 local government election.
According to him, the Medical Doctor turned politician was the best person for the job, even as he called on the people to adopt the governor for a second term, saying the Ika-born politician has been able to run an open and all-inclusive government, irrespective of the large wage bill.
He reiterated that the recession didn’t impede the smooth take off of capital projects littered all over the state, saying it goes to show that the governor is ready to “rewrite the narratives of the oil-rich state,”.
Okomitie added that the people needed to renew the governor’s mandate in 2019 to enable him finish what he started in 2015, stressing that “no people – the world over, change a winning team which is why team Okwa should be supported.”
He noted that the governor, on assumption of office, inaugurated the human development scheme christened S.M.A.R.T agenda, which he said has enriched and developed the youths better than he met them with a starter pack and mentorship which, he noted, was life changing.
According to him, when elected, he would proudly bring to bear his experiences into leadership, making the peoples’ development his cardinal programme. “My people are in dire need of development across board so as to cushion the effects of poverty on the creative youth population.
“We are richly blessed with abundant human resources in Ughelli South, all we need is a representative who will join hands with our performing governor to transform the creative minds into better productivity,” he said.
