Delta lawmakers warned against self-serving governance

12 November 2015, 17:34

Delta - The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Ovwigho Igbuya, has appealed to legislators to prioritise on the development of the region at the expense of selfish interests.

He thus called on members to re-double their efforts in the area of lawmaking for peace, good governance of the state and to jettison selfish goals.

“In the next few days, our decisions and deliberations can define the direction of the state. We need to set our hearts on a greater purpose than our personal interests which is to lift the state to a higher height.
We must offer hope to our people in spite of the gloomy situation,” said Igbuya during the House’s plenary.

He spoke as he welcomed the legislators back from a retreat.

“I welcome you all from the first Annual Overseas Lecture and Vacation of the 6th Assembly which took place at the Georgia Tech Students Centre, Atlanta Georgia,” he said.

“I know that we will apply the richness of the training and tour towards the execution of a just, fair and equitable legislative agenda in the pursuance of good governance and development during the remaining period of the first year of the 6th Assembly.”

On behalf of the Assembly, Igbuya thanked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa who in the face of some challenges deemed it necessary that legislators attended the training in view of enhancing their productive capacity.

“He knows that a solid and productive legislative arm of government is at the centre of true democratic governance,” said the Speaker.
