Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta has called for adequate cooperation from the newly inaugurated 7th Delta House of Assembly to forge the state.
Okowa in a statement on Monday in Asaba, noted that adequate collaboration between the state legislature and the executive would go a long way in helping to achieve a stronger Delta.
The governor, while congratulating Sheriff Oborevwori (PDP-Okpe) and Christopher Ochor (PDP-Ukwuani) for emerging Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the house respectively, said the lawmakers made good choices.
He noted that the duo would bring their wealth of experience to bear on the discharge of their duties.
Oborevwori served as speaker in the 6th Delta assembly and Ochor was also a member.
Okowa also congratulated other members of the house on their victory at the 2019 polls and urged them to bring their extensive knowledge and understanding of law-making to the service of the state.
“As governor of our dear state, I promise to give my total support to the house and anything that will be required to ensure that you discharge your responsibilities fully without any inconveniences,” he said.
He said the lawmakers should be proud of emerging representatives of their various constituencies from the teeming population and were duty bound to work for the overall interest of the state.
“Our people have entrusted us with this special mandate with a resounding victory in the last elections.
“The least we can do for them is to ensure that we make good laws for the good governance, security of lives and property and ensure service to the people for a stronger Delta.
“We need to understand that as representatives of the people, we must always consult with our constituents who sent us to the house and as messengers that we are.
“It is expected that we return home often to brief them on our representation.
“On behalf of the Government and people of Delta State, I congratulate you all on your success at the polls.
“I wish you God’s help in yet another phase of your continuing service to the good people of Delta,” the governor stated.
