Deputy Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Christopher Ochor Ochor has felicitated with the State government and Deltans as the state celebrates 28 years of creation, praying for a more united and economic viable Delta state.
The Deputy Speaker in his felicitation message, said that despite the various challenges that have affected the state, especially the issue of ethnic differences, the government at various times has been able to pull all stakeholders with their political differences together which have helped in the development of the state so far.
On the agenda of the state Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa for a Stronger Delta in his second term government, Rt. Hon. Ochor appealed to Deltans to give the government the needed support to position the state in its rightful place in the area of security, economic development, entrepreneurship and business development and, other factors that will make it stronger and viable.
“Today, August 27, 2019, our state, Delta marks 28 years of existence and as we know, at the beginning, it was a tough one, as we experienced crises at different levels and loss of trust, and at a time lives of many Deltans, young and old. It was a period of dark history of our existence as a people.
“However, we have overcome that era, and we are now in the new era of one, and social economic development of a state to achieve a goal, and that can be seen in the economic and social policies of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, under the able leadership of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, in the new mantra of a Stronger Delta.
“Let us therefore, as we celebrate join hands with the government to permanently place the state among committee of states that have a strong social and economic base. A state which we all will be proud of.” He stated.
