Governor Oborevwori To Unveil Africa’s Tallest Christmas Tree In Delta

Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, is set to inaugurate Africa’s tallest Christmas tree, towering at 123 feet, on Monday, December in Asaba.

This grand event is just one highlight within the 45-day Christmas extravaganza known as “Christmas In Delta,” which commenced on Friday, December 1. The initiative aims to offer an unparalleled Christmas celebration for both Deltans and visitors.

In a recent statement, Dr (Mrs.) Josephine Odunze, the Executive Assistant (EA) to the Governor on Culture and Tourism, emphasized that the yuletide fiesta aligns seamlessly with Governor Oborevwori’s vision. His goal is to craft a festive atmosphere that embodies the essence of the ‘Big Heart’ state.

During an inspection tour of various projects, Odunze highlighted the significance of the towering Christmas tree’s commissioning. This colossal structure symbolizes just one aspect of the 45 days dedicated to providing unforgettable Christmas experiences in the state. She lauded the governor and event organizers for their commitment to creating a memorable festive season.

‘’People have asked me why the Christmas tree is positioned where it is. I tell them that we cannot be selling Delta to Deltans by positioning the tree in town. We should be marketing Delta to outsiders. It is happening here in Delta State; 45 days of endless fun’’ she said.

In his remark, a member of the organising committee, Fred Onojeta, said that the initiative was to explore the state’s tourism potential, even as he commended the Oborevwori administration for an enabling environment for such enterprises to thrive.

‘’When the team put this event together tagged ‘’Christmas in Delta: 45 Days of Fond Memories served daily’’ it was audacious to put the tallest Christmas tree in Africa here in Asaba. We thought it was impossible’’ he said.

Meanwhile, the EA also visited other sites that will add flavour to the Christmas experience. Sitters visited include the Floating Bar and Water Park at Grand Hotel Asaba and several other facilities located at the Maryam Babangida Leisure Park and Film Village, Asaba.
