My administration has restored peace in riverine areas – Okowa
Governor of Delta State, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa says his administration has restored peace in riverine areas of the state with impactful projects.
The State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, made this known when he spoke, on TVC monitored in Asaba.
The information commissioner said the state government held townhall meetings with the people and resolved to take developments to the creeks which were hitherto described as impossible areas to develop.
He said Governor Okowa demonstrated high political will by ensuring that projects were taken to the creeks where most of the oil production in the state take place.
He said most administrations were afraid of the humongous resources that will be deployed to construct a kilometre of road in the creek or to build a structure capable of housing students and people that live in the riverine communities.
Mr Charles Aniagwu noted that because the people started seeing the sincerity of the Okowa led administration, the government got lots of cooperation from the youths, traditional institutions, from elders and of course from the women.
He averred that the people keyed into the Smart Agenda of the governor because of the interaction and equity in distribution of appointments, government projects and programmes
On the issue of free education and quality education in public schools, Aniagwu argued that free education was partially responsible for the fall in education in the country.
