Members of the Delta Chapter of Class 93, Department of Mass Communication, Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi have felicitated with the Delta State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa and the entire Deltans on the auspicious 28th anniversary of the creation of the state.
The group in a statement endorsed by the trio of Joseph Ikupa, Nkem Nwaeke and Boniface Onyedi, says the state has advanced in physical infrastructure and prayed that development becomes more rapid in the present tenure of Dr Okowa’s administration.
The group expressed joy of the involvement of one of them, Mr Charles Aniagwu who is the State Commissioner for Information as a key cabinet member of the administration that is driving the process of building a stronger Delta State.
It said the personable character and professional prowess of Mr Aniagwu are uncommon characteristics drawn from the fountain of their Alma mater, maintaining that his contributions as a member of the Delta State Executive Council will place the state on the fast lane of development.
The statement reads “28 years ago, the State was created to advance the cause of a people so blessed, yet deprived; a people so close, yet separated by conflicts of interest and underdevelopment”.
“Today, we have floated out of the depth of a drowning system by virtue of a new dawn to build a prosperous, greater and stronger Delta under the leadership of Dr Ifeanyi Okowa who has consolidated on the development efforts of past leaders of the State. In 28 years, Delta has advanced in infrastructure in various sectors, including education, health, road, industry, agriculture and human capital development”.
“In all these we give God all the glory and pray that development becomes more rapid in the present tenure of Dr Ifeanyi Okowa as Governor of Delta State”.
