Ifeanyi Okowa, the Delta State Governor and Vice-Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, has appointed new commissioners in order to ensure the smooth running of the state, IgbereTV reports
Okowa made this pronouncement via a statement issued on Tuesday in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
The nominee commissioners are:
Dr Samuel Ochonogor Chukwuneye – Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission DESOPADEC board member nominee
The governor sent the nominees’ name to the Delta State House of Assembly for screening & confirmation.
Last week, Governor Okowa blasted the critics of his administration and invited them to visit the state to assess its infrastructural development.
Okowa made the call while inspecting the ongoing work at the Dennis Osadebey University in Asaba, the state capital.
He said: “When people in Lagos and Abuja say that they are not seeing what we are doing, it is either that they don’t come home or that they just want to be wicked in their ways.
“There is a lot going on in our three new universities and we are proud that we took this decision because the new universities have admitted no fewer than 5,000 students within one year of their approval.
“We have also commenced the construction of two hostel projects in the university to accommodate students and it will be useful to us during the National Sports Festival holding in Asaba in November
