Outgoing Governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has begged members of his Cabinet to forgive him for not meeting some of their expectations.
The Governor made the appeal this weekend during the valedictory session of the State Executive Council, noting that there was need for forgiveness no matter the level of hurt.
The Governor said his administration’s success stories cannot be completed without members of the State Executive Council being part of it, adding that the State Exco worked tirelessly with him to make Deltans and the state better.
He said his administration did not only construct physical bridges but built bridges of unity among the various nationalities in the state, adding that Deltans must remain united in their quest for more development.
According to him, it took courage to take practical development to riverine communities that have been neglected on the excuse of difficult terrain, maintaining that his administration had made a bold statement with development in rural and riverine areas across the state.
He, also commended the Commissioner for Oil and Gas, Prince Emmanuel Amgbaduba and the Special Adviser to the Governor on Peace Building, Chief Edwin Uzor for their efforts in ensuring peace between oil companies and host communities.
Meanwhile, Okowa has directed the Secretary to the State Government, Commissioners and other members of the State Exco to remain in office till midnight of Sunday, May 28, 2023.
