Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has come out to beg the leadership of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) to collaborate with governors and stakeholders in the South-South to fasten the transformation of the region, especially in peace and development.

Okowa revealed this when he received the newly-elected executive committee members of IYC at the Government House, Asaba.

According to him, the new leadership of the council should be pleased with their successful election and he would make sure he partners with them to stimulate human capital development for the people of Ijaw extraction of the state and other Deltans.

He added that the ongoing Ayokoromo Bridge project would be completed before his tenure as governor expires.

His words, “Government will take some decisions and see what can be done.”

“Your remark that you had a very peaceful and democratic election is very important, not only for the Ijaw Youth Council, it is, also, important for our nation, Nigeria. Every election that ought to be democratic, should be truly democratic.

“So, I am glad that you people had a very peaceful and democratic election and that your executive committee has emerged.”

“For Ayokoromo Bridge, I want to assure you that by the special grace of God, it would be completed during my tenure. It is not a project that I will hand over to another administration.

“We are doing a lot by God’s grace in the riverine areas and as God continues to provide resources for us, we will continue to do more.

“For those of us from Delta, you know already the much that we have been doing. Yes, that may not be our best but at least reasonably enough, we are attending to the riverine areas and that is why when you get to places like Okerenkoko, even in Oporoza, Ogulaha kingdom, and Burutu area, you will see that a lot of changes have taken place.”
