AS Nigeria grapples with the effects of dwindling oil price, the Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has challenged members of the National Assembly to proffer solution to the situation.

Governor Okowa gave the challeng when a high-power delegation from the Senate led by Senator Kabiru Gaya paid him a courtesy visit in Asabaonn Saturday.

The Senators which included the minority leader, Godswill Akpabio, James Manager, Ighoyota Amori, Peter Nwaoboshi, Ishiaka Adeleke, Theodore Orji, among others were in Delta State to commiserate with the government, its people and condole the Itsekiri nation on the demise of the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwase II.

According to Governor Okowa, the National Assembly has a lot of experienced Nigerians who can proffer solutions to the economic crisis facing the country.

“We are in very trying times and we believe that with the kind of men we have both in the Senate and in the House of Representatives, that you will help us think through to find ways of stabilizing both the resources and the governance of our nation in such a manner that will be in the best interest of our people,” he said.

He observed, “there is a lot of pain on ground nationally, it is not something that we believe there is a quick fix to, but, the exposure that most of the Senators and other members of the National Assembly have had made them to stand a good chance in being able to partner with the executive arm of government to proffer solutions to the current challenges that we face as a nation.”

Governor Okowa further observed that “at this very trying times in the history of our nation when the oil prices have gone very low and things are quite difficult, we will always rely on the National Assembly to stand up to help create solutions.”

He thanked the Senate for commiserating with Delta State government, its people and the Itsekiri nation on the demise of the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwase II stating that the deceased was “a very powerful Royal Father, a man of peace who made his contributions to the growth of our state and the nation but this visit has shown that Nigerians appreciate him more than we thought.”

Senator Gaya had told the Governor that they were in the state on behalf of the Senate to identify with the government and people of Delta State on the demise of the Olu of Warri, disclosing that the delegation would also, pay a condolence visit on the Itsekiri ethnic nationality.

He presented a condolence letter on behalf of the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki to Governor Okowa while a minute silence in honour of the deceased Olu was observed.pix 9-9
