Following the directive to offset local government workers’ salaries arrears by the Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, the Chairman, Aniocha North Local Government Area, Hon. Chuks Oseme has applauded the governor for his kind gesture.
The council boss who described Okowa’s kind gesture as a true democrat, said Okowa has indeed exhibited what he stands for (Ekwueme), saying that the council in return would work hard to ensure his re-election.
Speaking shortly in Asaba after the governor announced the released of N5 Billion to offset the unpaid salaries arrears of council workers across the 25 local governments in the state, Oseme said the gesture will complement his giant stride in past three years.
He said “Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is truly the Ekwueme of Delta politics. He works his promise to the state. We have all been wondering how the governor has been able to carry on with the projects he is running in several communities in the state despite the drop in resource to the state. And now he has given directive to all the Council Chairmen to clear all the backlogs of the workers salaries, in fact, he has done it again, what he is known of”
Oseme said that this kind gesture would go a very long way in ameliorating the financial sufferings of the workers at the council level, hence boost the welfare and as well attitude to work.
While he gave a thumbs up to the Governor, Oseme was satisfied with the developmental strides of the Delta state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa in the midst of the economic challenges.
He posited that the vote of confidence passed so far on the Governor is devoid of any form of political sycophancy but that it was borne out of a careful and systemic analysis of the Governor’s achievements so far which he described as amazing.
The chairman further commended Governor Okowa for being resourceful with the dwindled income to the state, and therefore, called on Deltans, particularly Aniocha North indigenes to strengthen their support for the present administration in order to enable it achieve its vision of “Prosperity For All Deltans”.
He said that Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has been tremendous and is being attested to by all Deltans. Adding that most importantly, at a time like this, all hands should be on deck to deliver Governor Okowa’s second tenure.
He charged electorates in Delta state to sustain the current ‘good developments’ in the state by ensuring that the incumbent state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, is reelected in 2019 general election.
