Nigeria, July 31, 2015, (Blank NEWS Online) –
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Charles Aniagwu made the disclosure yesterday (30/07/15) while briefing a cross section of Journalists on activities of Governor Okowa’s administration in Asaba.
He said “To Senator Okowa, prosperity for all Deltans is not just a political cliché but an agenda that is realisable through commitment to the SMART Agenda,” stressing that “Governor Okowa’s administration means well for the state, he is desirous of leaving Delta State far better than he met it, in the course of our electioneering campaign throughout the state, we were emphatic on our promise to improve on the standard of living of our people.”Mr Aniagwu decried negative publicity against Governor Okowa’s administration on the pages of newspapers and the social media noting, “while the Delta State government under Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa strives to actualise its set objectives, it has come to the notice of the state government that some individuals are out, not only to discredit the efforts being put in place, but determined to throw spanner in the wheel of progress in the state development policy initiatives.”
“Even when government welcomes constructive criticisms from right thinking members of the society, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration will not be cowed neither will it give in to cheap blackmail from few persons, hiding under the cover of being protectors of public interest to falsify information and mislead the unsuspecting members of the public,” the Chief Press Secretary said.
Mr. Aniagwu said that Governor Okowa’s administration has taken proactive measures to curb the effects of flooding on Deltans. He stressed that the action has become necessary on account of the predictions of the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) that some states in the country including Delta would face flood challenges this year.
