I’ll surpass my first term’s achievements – Okowa

Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has promised that he will surpass his first term’s achievements in the next four years.

Okowa stated this on Tuesday when he received members of the Christian Association of Nigeria and the Nigeria Labour Congress at the Government House in Asaba.

He said, “In the last four years, we received a lot of accolades for our achievements.

“We had no doubt that we would emerge victorious.

“The elections are over. It is time for reconciliation. It is time to build. I have greater challenges in my second term and it is my desire to surpass the things we did in our first tenure.

“I will like to leave office in 2023 happier because Deltans are happier, more united and we have a stronger state.”

Okowa commended the state chapters of CAN and the NLC for the roles played in stabilising his administration and ensuring his victory at the polls.

He sought the cooperation of all stakeholders in building the state.

The Chairman of CAN in the state, Sylvanus Okorote, and the Deputy National President of the NLC, Amaechi Asuguni, said Okowa’s achievements in the first term were remarkable.

They said the achievements led to the governor’s electoral victory.
