The Founder, Okowa Legacy Group (OLG), Dr. (Mrs.) Isioma Okobah has said that returning Okowa for a 2nd term is their mandate. She made this statement during the inauguration of the group at Onicha-Ugbo in Aniocha-North LGA of Delta on Saturday, March 31, 2018.
Speaking during the meeting, the Executive Assistant to the State Governor on E-Health and the Chairman, Delta State Primary Health Care, Dr. (Mrs.) Isioma Okobah, said the essence of the group is to use their medium to sensitize Deltans on the need to bring Gov. Okowa back to the State Government House come 2019 saying that the two Senatorial districts in Delta State have had 8years in government, and, that of Delta North must not be an exception. She stated that the developmental strides of Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa’s led administration has proven that he is fit for a second tenure irrespective of the lean treasury he met when he assumed office as the governor.
In her words, “The opinion of oppositions that Okowa is not working is a mere propaganda aimed at halting the second term bid of Governor Okowa. His developmental strides in the Health and Educational sector, construction of roads, entrepreneurs, youth empowerment through YAGEP and STEP speaks volume to prove that Okowa is working. Okowa is a good ‘business’ that needs no advertisement. Hence, our mandate is ‘Okowa 2019.’”
Continuing, she advised the Okowa Legacy Group Aniocha-North unit to embark on door-to-door, church-to-church, market-to-market sensitization for Senator (Dr.) Okowa their principal. She therefore, called on sons and daughters of Aniocha-North who are of age to vote to come out enmasse to vote for Okowa come 2019.
