His Royal Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III, the Olu of Warri, has commended Olorogun David Edevbie’s presentation of his vision for the development of Delta State.
Atuwatse III made the commendation in his palace in Warri on Tuesday, April 19, 2022 when the frontline PDP Governorship aspirant and his team visited him to seek his royal blessings.
Edevbie, who has proposed a modernisation agenda for the state, informed the Olu and his Chiefs that the key drivers of his vision are Energy, Security, Job and Wealth Creation, Social Infrastructure and Public Sector Reform.
He also emphasised the need to connect the riverine areas to the mainland, revitalise Warri city and its port as the commercial centre of the state and increase employment opportunities for youths.
Responding, Ogiame commended Edevbie, describing his presentation as “a lecture, a brilliant lecture” on development.
The Olu said he has always prayed that whoever will take over from Governor Ifeanyi Okowa should be someone who has the ideas and capacity to do the right thing to drive the development of the state.
He pointed out that the development of the Niger Delta which is led by Delta State will impact on the development of Nigeria as the Niger Delta is the gateway to the nation.
“When Delta State gets it right, Nigeria as a whole will feel the effect because Delta is critical to the entire nation,” Atuwatse III said.
Praying for good health, journey mercies and safety for Edevbie and his team, the Olu also asked God to grant him the wisdom and resources needed to prosecute the Governorship race, adding that God should make the resources not to have strings or conditions that could impede his implementation of his good vision.
