Wife of Delta Governor and founder 05 Initiative, Dame Edith Okowa Wednesday, June 1, 2022 celebrated her 61st birth anniversary with inmates of the Five Correctional centers in the state.

Addressing inmates at the Ogwashi-Uku Correctional center, Dame Okowa charged them to hold on to God, adding that even if they were found guilty as charged, God’s mercy could still locate them, and urged them to genuinely surrender their lives to God.

The governor’s wife said it has become a tradition for her to celebrate Jesus with the inmates of the five correctional centers in the state in order to give them a sense of belonging and hope of freedom to live normal life again, hence her representatives were also in Warri, Agbor, Kwale and Sepele celebrating the day with the inmates simultaneously.
