The Delta Governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, has congratulated his predecessor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, as he turned 66.
The Governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, praised the former Governor for his sterling contributions to the growth and development of Delta.
Okowa urged the former Governor to continue to avail the state of his experience as the government worked towards a Stronger Delta for the people. “We pray that God Almighty would continue to bless him with good health and long life.
He is an elder statesman and leader of inestimable value whose contributions to the growth and development of the state remained memorable.”
“On behalf of the government and people of Delta, it is with profound joy and gratitude to God that I express very warm felicitations to you on your 66th birth anniversary.”
He commended the former Governor for the gigantic contributions he made through laudable programmes he embarked on during his tenure as Governor between 2007 and 2015.
“As we continue to pursue our Stronger Delta vision, we remain ever committed to a sustainable future that requires us to be more egalitarian and cooperative with all ethnic groups, the same goal you exemplified during your reign as Governor.”
“I join your family, friends and well-wishers to thank Almighty God for His continued guidance, protection and provision for you in the past 66 years of a life of many accomplishments”.
