Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya, has declared that nothing will threaten the re-election of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in 2019, if he desires to go for a second term.
He said the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, “is fully planted everywhere in Delta State and it will continue to dominate the political turf. Nothing will threaten Okowa’s re-election in 2019. We will stand by him,” he said.
Igbuya, who spoke on the governorship in 2019, tenure and other matters at the first anniversary/thanksgiving service of the Sixth Assembly, commended Okowa.
“By the legislative rule, Governor Okowa is the 30thmember of the Delta State House of Assembly. He is a miracle working governor. Delta State should count itself as blessed for producing somebody like him. He has performed well under an unfriendly economic situation and will continue to do his good work for the state,” he said.
The speaker commended Okowa for his fatherly support and regular payment of salaries to workers.
“We will continue to support Okowa and all his programmes aimed at enhancing the wellbeing of people of the state”.
Focusing on stability, unity and economic reforms, Igbuya, a political tactician, said “it is in the interest of Delta State for Okowa to continue in office beyond May 2019.”
He urged Deltans at home and abroad to continue to pray for the governor.
He also asked his colleagues to forgive him for past mistakes. “It is not easy leading 28 brains. Let us continue to work in unity.”
The thanksgiving service held at Divine Way Baptist Church, Okpanam Road, Asaba, was attended by top government functionaries, industry captains, academics, traditional rulers and others.
