Lagos – The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Monday Igbuya, has expressed satisfaction with progress made by the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa since it came to power exactly a year ago.

Okowa was sworn in on May 29 in 2015, taking over from Emmanuel Uduaghan in a state dominated by the People's Democratic Party.

Igbuya applauded the role of Okowa in the political and economic development of the state.

“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is pragmatic and truthful,” Igbuya said.

“Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is responsible, transparent and accountable,” added Igbuya.

“He is managing the resources and ensuring efficient and effective functioning of all political and socio-economic infrastructures.  In one year, he has much to look back to with pride despite the bad economic situation. In his pursuit of integrity and dignity, he has never compromised and has tried never to humiliate his enemies.”

Igbuya spoke in Sapele where he said the social and economic conditions in the state gave great cause for cheers, citing progress in roads, public hospitals, agriculture, education and job creation.

“Despite the tough economic challenges, we are committed to giving the best representation to our constituencies” he added.

Igbuya also welcomed the harmony between the executive and legislature saying it was worthy emulating.

“The interest of the people has always been paramount,” he said.
