By Nosa Akenzua
The Oroupawei of Gbraramatu Kingdom, Chief Wellington Bobo, has commended the developmental strides of Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa over the recent successful ground breaking ceremony of commencement of DELTRASCO Africa’s largest Transmission Tower Manufacturing Company at Issele-Uku, Aniocha North local government area.
Bobo, who spoke in Warri, explained that Governor Okowa was not paying lip service to his vision of a stronger Delta but taking practical steps to make Delta an industrialisation hub, hence he took the giant stride of DELTRASCO using the Delta State Industrial Development Agency DIDA.
“Governor Okowa is working in all fairness, he is doing his best but just like Oliver Twist we still want him to touch more of the riverine communities because of our peculiar terrain which have suffered so much degradation due to oil exploration and exploitation activities,” Bobo stated.
An acclaimed ‘good governance advocate’, Bobo, expressed more confidence in Governor Okowa noted: “Since Governor Okowa is a detribalised leader who listens to the plight of his people, my appeal to him to have a particular focus on the riverine communities will be looked into by the grace of God.”
He reaffirmed the support of Delta citizens, particularly the Ijaws of Delta South for the Okowa administration.
While dismissing pockets of skirmishes in the state as mere storms in a teacup, Chief Bobo said: “Yes, it is true that once in a while he sees some skirmishes of flashpoints but in all, we appreciate the dexterity with which the Okowa administration has ensured that there is prevailing peace across the state, we are grateful for his solid grip on the saddle as the state chief executive who knows his onions.”
