Delta State Governor, Mr Ifeanyi Okowa, has assured residents of the state of enhanced service delivery by the state government in the new year.
In his goodwill message on Saturday in Asaba, signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Aniagwu, the Governor reiterated his administration’s determination to increase the tempo of service delivery and infrastructural development in 2017.
“With a deep sense of profound gratitude to God almighty, I welcome you all to a brand new year 2017. I join you all in giving profuse thanks to God almighty for His guidance and protection all through the preceding year, 2016.
“I appreciate immensely the unalloyed, support and cooperation that our administration has enjoyed from Deltans, which has been our source of strength and courage. I salute our collective resolve to continue to live together in peace despite the economic challenges that the Nigeria nation is presently faced with,” Mr Okowa said.
Furthermore, the Governor pointed out that, “Our administration has in the past year and half redoubled our efforts in keeping faith with our electoral promises despite the continued shortfall in the revenue projections.
“We have been doing our best to ensure that the developmental needs of the state are attended to by applying the level of prudence and ingenuity that the present challenges demand.”
He also urged Deltans to keep the peace, a core element of his SMART Agenda which focuses mainly on ‘strategic Wealth creation projects and provision of jobs for all Deltans; meaningful peace building platforms aimed at political and social harmony; Agricultural reforms and accelerated industrialization; Relevant Health and Education policies; Transformed environment through urban renewal’.
“The year 2017 is a year of many of God’s blessings and my prayer is that the Almighty will meet you at the point of your needs. Be rest assured that we will strive, as always, to ensure that your security is paramount, just as social services, including the provision of adequate infrastructure will be up-scaled.
“While I enjoin you to continue to keep the peace, remain blessed throughout the year,” the Governor said.
