THE coordinator of Foundation For Humanitarian Support (FHS), Mr Onyewenu Orjione, has said, non governmental organizations (NGOs) would be mobilized to boost and ensure the successful election of Dr Ifeanyi Okowa as the governor of Delta State.
Mr Orjione dropped the hint while speaking about the qualities of the candidates jostling for the governorship position in Delta State.
According to him, Senator Okowa has an enviable track record of working for humanity and electing him as the Governor of Delta State would bring about the delivery of his promised prosperity for all Deltans.
“Senator Okowa is a Medical Doctor, a politician who feels the pulse of the people, within the few years of his being in the Senate, he has empowered a lot of Deltans and his emergence as Governor would be a blessing to all Deltans,” Mr Orjione said, stating, “we are mobilizing all the NGOs to work for the emergence of Senator Okowa as Governor.”
“Naturally, we are not political but, this issue concerns us because, we are working for a better future for our people and I can tell you that we are discussing on how to gather enough votes for Okowa,” he added.
He observed that Senator Okowa’s running mate, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro was a good choice as it has positioned the Ijaws to know that they are equal stakeholders in the governance of Delta State.
Mr Orjione said, “I know Barr. Otuaro as a person, he is humble and has great vision of what he can do for the people and his becoming the Deputy Governor means that the Ijaws can aspire to be the Governor of the state, democracy is about equal opportunities and Senator Okowa no doubt, will give Deltans that opportunity.”
