Former governor of Delta State and elder statesman, His Excellency Chief James Onanefe Ibori today Wednesday 13th December 2017, ignited the venue of YAGEP and STEP Exhibition venue in Asaba, Delta State capital; when he once again expressed overwhelming support for the second tenure of the SMART GOVERNOR of Delta State, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa.
The political leader who was special guest of honour at the trade and exhibition event organised by Delta State Government, said Gov Okowa has done pretty well in barely two years and seven months, especially in infrastructure development and Youth empowerment through vocational training, skills acquisition and financial support in steady fulfilment of his administration's Prosperity for All Deltans mantra.
"Your Excellency the Governor of Delta State (Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa), my job is very simple. I will continue to pray for you and your administration because of your tremendous achievements so far.
"I am particularly happy that you focused on providing jobs for our youth. When you and I must have gone, they are the ones that will be here to take over from us. They are certainly the leaders of tomorrow.
"I deeply appreciate your administration's huge investments in our youth, which is why I am here today to give you my support and to say that you have truly done well. Deltans did not make any mistake in voting you as their governor. You have lived up to expectations and you deserve my support and sincere commendations.
"I am one of your subjects and as such I have my constitutional rights to have a say in the affairs of Delta State. Hear this, you have done well; your eight (8) years shall be celebrated at the end of it all.
"You (Gov Okowa) will return to be our governor in 2019, and I am pretty sure that I am speaking for the vast majority of eligible voters in Delta State," Chief Ibori echoed.
The atmosphere charged and the rendition of ODIDIGBORIGBO OF AFRICA enveloped the venue accommoding thousands of Deltans from across the three Senatorial districts. Chief Ibori further set the venue politically ablaze when he greeted the mammoth crowd in various ethnic languages in a campaign-like force of connection.
Earlier, the host and core investor on youth empowerment and development, His Excellency Senator Dr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa said the exhibition and trade meet is essential for the nearly 3,000 Deltans from the 25 local government areas in the state to showcase their skills, products, goods and services.
The smart governor further asserted that his administration will continue to invest heavily in the future of youth in the state, adding that the quality of life of our youth and people substantially testify to the progress of Delta State and by extention Nigeria.
He acknowledged the inestimable leadership qualities of Chief James Ibori, describing him as a leader with solid pedigree, a promise keeper, an amiable empowerment agent and a highly detribalized political leader of leaders.
The YAGEP and STEP Exhibition is for 13th and 14th December, 2017. Deltans are encouraged to patronize Delta young entrepreneurs at the two days exhibition. Nearly all sectors are covered; from farm produce to technical equipment to fashion, information technology, foods and beverages, et all.
