I don’t have time for eye service – Okowa

Ifeanyi Okowa

Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, called on political office holders to be committed to his administration’s Stronger Delta agenda.

Okowa made the call on Tuesday while swearing in a special adviser, Emuobo Gbagi, and inaugurating boards of five parastatals and agencies in Asaba, Delta State capital.


“I will not have any time for ‘eye service.’ There is a lot to be done for our people; everyone must sit up and hit the ground running. Most importantly, we must always remember that every position that we occupy is held in trust for our people,” the governor said.

“I want to state that it is not possible to give appointment to all Deltans who saw to my emergence as Governor; what I will assure is that as much as possible we will deliver the dividends of democracy and reposition our state to be prosperous for stronger Delta to be achieved.

“We will continue to stay focused on our goals; everybody should provide the enabling environment that will engender peace for investment to thrive, because the more resources we have, the more we engage in development programmes.”


The boards inaugurated were those of Delta State Library Board, Delta State School of Health Technology, Delta State Post Primary Education Board, Delta State Waste Management Board, and Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro.
