Let’s Unite To Develop Our State, Oborevwori Tells Deltans

Delta State Governor, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, Sunday, said his desire was for Deltans to be united for the overall growth and development of the state.

Speaking at the 40th birth anniversary thanksgiving service of the Executive Director, Business Development, NEXIM Bank, Stella Okotete, OON, at Christ Missionaries Crusaders Church, Ekpan, Uvwie Local Government Area of the state, Governor Oborevwori said the state would continue to enjoy peace and security as encapsulated in his administration’s M.O.R.E Agenda.

While congratulating Okotete on thanking God for a life of great accomplishments at 40, the Governor said giving thanks to God was not only an appreciation, but also prayer for more, and commended the celebrant for coming home to celebrate with her people which was an indication that she remained a grassroot politician.

He said: “I am very happy to be here today and it shows that I am a Governor for all Deltans. Seeing all the faces I know here shows that we are all one family in Delta State.

“I am Governor for all Deltans and I do not segregate. I want all of us to be united with the interest of developing Delta State.

“Leadership is turn by turn. The most important thing is to do what you should be remembered for while in office.

“Delta State will continue to enjoy peace, just as I promised in my MORE Agenda that we will continue to enhance peace and security.

“I thank you all for coming, even as I continue to count on your support.”

In her vote of thanks, the celebrant, who is a former National Woman Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Stella Okotete, said she was grateful to God for blessing her life over the years.

Okotete who hailed from Ekrerhavwen-Agbarho in Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state, thanked Governor Oborevwori for attending the thanksgiving, inspite of their political differences.

Earlier in his sermon, Archbishop Goddowell Avwomakpa urged Christians to cultivate the habit of praising God, adding that man would, in the course of life, encounter problems but would not be overwhelmed by them.

The cleric, who said that he dedicated the celebrant to God 40 years ago, thanked God for her exploits in life.
