Founder of 05 Initiative and wife of Delta state governor, Her Excellency Dame Edith Okowa has successfully hosted the Delta Children’s Party in commemoration of the Silver Jubilee celebration of the state’s creation in 1991.

The epoch making event which was attended by children drawn from the 25 local government areas of the state featured Quiz competitions in General subjects and the Holy Bible as well as kiddies performances of various sports, dances, featuring Ben 10, Spiderman, Mickey Mouse among others.

Dame Edith Okowa, in her speech commended the children who honoured the invitation to be part of the event to mark the swift and remarkable progress the state has recorded since its creation, especially in the present Governor Ifeanyi Okowa led administration.

She also thanked the various banks who sponsored the Children’s party for collaborating with her pet project, the 05 Initiative and the state government to organize the party which was spiced up with distribution of gift items to the children, who she described as future leaders.

While saying that the event has aroused the children to display their God given talents in many stages and areas of child development, she noted that children also form the bedrock of societal growth, considering their humble quest for knowledge, which was proudly exhibited by the likes of David King Uruneden, a Five year old Kindergarten Three pupil, who recited the Holy Bible books from Genesis to Revelation and was awarded an Educational Scholarship by the 05 Initiative.

The Delta state First Lady was earlier engaged in an on the spot, mind boggling but heart warming interview by a popular and nationally acclaimed interviewer and founder of 515 Club, Miss Zara Hnwakanor, a Primary Five pupil of Champion Academy, Jos.

Highpoint of the event was the presentation of gift award to deserving children, including Yotan Lori and Golley Bliss from Warri South and Ethiope West local government areas respectively who clinched First and Second positions in the General Studies Quiz competition and others who participated in different competitions put together by the organizers at the Event Centre, Asaba on Wednesday, August 24, 2016.
