Ex Secretary to Delta State Government, Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay has said Ifeanyi Okowa exceeded expectations as Delta State governor.
He stated that Ifeanyi Okowa’s reign was so peaceful that the only discussions was about how the future of Delta would be.
His words, “I have not heard of any fracas between them and the executive. With that, they have done perfectly well. I don’t think they have done badly. Today, in Delta State, I can say we have more happy people than aggrieved.”
“The last election was very challenging. The challenges made everyone to sit up from the governor to the membership of the party. This was the first time the PDP was contesting as opposition. We were fighting from a weak point but by the end of the elections, there was an unusual unity. It was unprecedented. However, the humility of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa was sterling hence it was easier to market him. Okowa’s level of humility, accessibility and response to issues greatly informed the victory.”
“The greatest challenges were not the number of those who defected, but on security issues. Security is very necessary to the success of every election. Nevertheless, the support from the people overwhelmed everything. One thing that Okowa has working for him is experience. No matter the people he surrounds himself with, experience cannot be overemphasized. Okowa did well in his first four years. He raised the bar of expectations. A lot of people threw aside their grief for his sake.”
”The first area which is a national issue is that of security. He must consolidate on his projects by completing them. He must lay more emphasis on health and education because they are the hallmark of human existence. Okowa should know the calibre of people he should appoint. Let God lead him to appoint people who are ready to build people and institutions rather than to build their selves. They must be people who are committed to delivering on the governor’s mandate.”
