The Senior special assistant to Delta state governor on intelligent gathering and communication development, Mr Smart Yomi, has called on Deltans to emulate the governor of Delta state, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa’s honest and efficient administrative style to fast track performance and development.
According to him: “The governoor’s aides are doing wonderfully well because their principal, the governor, is focus, he has given them enablement to deliver in their various capacities.”
He said the governor has demonstrated an administrative style that has brought courage and hope to all Deltans, saying Okowa has delivered on his campaign promises.
He said what the governor is doing in the riverine communities in terms of rural infrastructural development, which some of the sons and daughters who had opportunity could not do is unprecedented.
The governor’s aid disclosed that he offered to serve in the present administration because he believed in the governor, adding: “The governor’s style of administration has strengthened me to exploit areas on how to win an election in accordance with democratic principles.
” I want to function in every way that I can perform to keep the success story of the governor. Today, I want to offer myself to represent the good people of Warri federal constituency in the forthcoming general election to be part of the success story of the governor by operating from the National Assembly. ”
He said his ambition to serve his people has been a desire born out to faithfully look at the critical areas where his constituents are lagging behind in the comity of federal constituency.
He pointed out that the constituency he want to represent includes the Ijaws, Urhrobo and Itsekiri. He added that these ethnic groups have long standing relationship for centuries.
He said his first priority when elected is to work with the various opinion leaders and stakeholders to see that the distrust among ethnic groups will be addressed so that permanent peace will reign.
He emphasised that the Itsekiris and Ijaws have so much in common which can be harnessed to strengthen the age long good relationship their co-habitation brought in the past.
The governor’s aid stated that he is vying for the elective position which is higher coming under the platform of thePeoples Democratic Party, PDP, to further strengthen the relationship between the ethnic groups and also to create enabling atmosphere for everyone irrespective of their ethnic and political affiliation to be successful genuinely with the understanding of God purpose for bringing us together in one geographical location.
The maritime industrialist said his intention is to promote the well-being of the masses, to bring to them what belong to them at the federal level and be used in such a way for the supreme welfare and happiness of the constituents.
