During a special thanksgiving service held at the Government House Chapel, Asaba, to celebrate his re-election, Governor Okowa stressed that there was no loser in the poll and that he was ready to work with his political opponents to build a stronger and prosperous Delta.
“Our opponents should join us as I seek the cooperation and the partnership of all Deltans because, we have done so much; but a lot more will be done in the next four years, starting from May, 29. As I seek for your cooperation and partnership, I also solicit for your prayers. We must work hard to take Delta State to greater heights. We need to be peaceful because, with peace, we will achieve a lot,” Okowa said.
The chaplain of Government House Chapel, Ven. Charles Osemenam, had in his sermon, said: “Delta State is unique and the uniqueness of Delta makes everything work peacefully. When a thing is of God, the thing is unstoppable; we are here to thank God because, if not for God, the enemy would be rejoicing; this is a new beginning and we thank God for the victory of our governor at the polls. We thank Deltans for being peaceful before, during and after the elections.”
The governor’s wife, Dame Edith Okowa; wife of the deputy governor, Dr. Ebieri Otuaro; former governor of the state, Chief James Onanefe Ibori; members of the National Assembly, and other dignitaries attended the thanksgiving service.
