  1. Let Okowa focus more on agriculture,and see what Delta State will become in the nearest future.
    And in doing that,he should focus on the youth to achieve this.
    Delta could be made a food haven of the nation,considering the vast land and human resources that we are blessed with.
    Let see what Youth Advocacy Group For Agriculture can do in this area.
