Mr Ekos Akpokabayen, South Africa chapter Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has commended Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta for giving opportunities to young technocrats to be part of governance in the state.
Akpokabayen said on Friday in Lagos that Okowa`s style of governance was unique.
“ The paradigm shift from the medieval political compensational era where political appointments were only totally left in the hands of the old cronies in our society whose only interest were majorly personal.
Akpokabayen, a Delta indigene, also used the opportunity to announce his new book “THE AFRICAN PROGRESS INITIATIVE’’ which majorly draws a roadmap to the way forward for the African continent in the rapidly emerging world of today.
According to him, what is happening in Delta is worthy of emulation and should be replicated at the federal level.
