As Governor Ifeanyi Okowa intensifies efforts to form a credible government, the Burutu community women have appealed to Okowa to appoint one of them, Hon Felicia Orounagha as a Special Adviser.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Concerned Women for Okowa (CWO), yesterday in Warri.
Signed by the spokeswoman CWO, Tare Diatubo, the women said, “we are appealing to our leader and principal, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to consider one person from our group as a Special Adviser, to represent us at the state level”.
The women also congratulated the governor and his deputy on their successful swearing in on May 29.
According to the women, “the reason we are projecting Hon Felicia Orounagha is because when she was elected as chairman of Burutu local government council in 1997, one of the significant performance she made was to build the Burutu market which later became a major trade center during the Warri crisis because if not for that market, all Burutu women and other residents would have died of hunger.
“We are very optimistic that if she is appointed as one of Okowa’s aide, she will attract more dividends of democracy to the door steps of Burutu people.
“We believe in Governor Okowa and we want him to understand that this appointment will enable women in Burutu and Delta state in general to benefit positively from his appointment”.
