The Governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal has commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state for enhancing the socio-economic life of citizens of the state through his sustained commitment to promoting good governance in the state.
Gov. Tambuwal was speaking in Asaba while inaugurating the Mariam Babangida dual carriageway which was constructed by the state government.
He said that Gov. Okowa has been demonstrating strong strength in providing excellent leadership, stating that the Okowa administration is doing great in terms of infrastructural development anchored on the threshold of good governance.
While saying that he was delighted to have been invited to perform the official inauguration of two roads in the state, Gov. Tambuwal stated that the PDP family in the country is impressed with the performance index of Gov. Okowa.
“Governor Okowa has done very well in providing good leadership in all aspects of governance,” Gov. Tambuwal said, noting that the Delta state government has apart from its exploits in road development done well in the areas of education, empowerment and human capital development among other sectors of the state’s economy.
Performing the inauguration of the 7.5 kilometres Ogwashi Uku /Ubulu Uno Road in Aniocha South Local Government Area of the state, the Sokoto state governor noted that the road is strategic to the growth of the town, even as he affirmed that the road would among other benefits, connect the town to other parts of the state.
Earlier, Gov. Okowa disclosed that the Maryam Babaginda dual carriage way is strategically unique to the people and government of the state as it houses the most important aspects of governance in the state.
“Apart from the fact that road is very important to us, it is named after a dear daughter of Asaba and Delta state, Maryam Babangida and the road houses the most important aspect of governance in the state.
“First, we have the old secretariats (two of them) and the new secretariat complex that is coming up which, in the next few months, would house all the ministries, departments and agencies with the support of the two existing old secretariats. I am sure that we took the right decision to truly dualise the road,” Gov. Okowa added.
