Nigeria (Blank NEWS Online) –
Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Monday Igbuya, has lauded the eforts of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for creating diverse and purposeful economic opportunities for Deltans.
He appealed to all, irrespective of sex, religion, ethnic origin, political affiliation or social status to join hands in the work ahead to make Delta peaceful and prosperous.
“Let us work with the governor to improve the lots of the people of the state” he pleaded.
He however gave the governor a pat on the back for putting in place cost saving measures and injecting honesty, efficiency and competence into the art of governance.
He attributed the level of development in the last six months to cordial relationship between the three arms of government, the governor’s ability and strength in initiating people-oriented policies, which he said had improved the lives of the people.
To make a quantum leap in development, Igbuya said Governor Okowa would continue to run a people-oriented government
“Okowa’s vision is virtually limitless. He will continue to run a transparent government. He will continue to protect the interest of the people. He will continue to build the infrastructural base of the state. He will continue to create the right environment for businesses to flourish without bureaucratic impediments,” he said.
He noted that the expectations of Deltans at home and abroad from the government were high but explained that the governor is committed to doing the right things.
“Okowa is a good listener and knows his task of governing the state. He will stick to the policy of transparency and accountability,” he promised.
Igbuya further disclosed that the executive, legislature, and judiciary in the state would continue to strengthen the tenets of good governance, considering the robust cordial relationship among the three arms of government.
“My primary agenda in the Delta State House of Assembly is to ensure that laws are made by the House for the peace, security and good governance of the state; laws that would be result oriented and have positive impact on the lives of Deltans.”
“The existence, functions and duties of the three organs of government are constitutional. There are checks and balances and separation of power. The judiciary interprets the law, the legislature makes law and the executive implements the law. There will always be synergy between the three arms of government.
“The lawmakers are not subservient to the executive arm but there is need for synergy to propel and maintain the state on the path of prosperity. Our people didn’t vote for us to suffocate the system or to fight the governor or to carry placard that governor cannot do this or that. Their quest is for us to make laws that can bring proper development of the state.”
