The Executive Committee and members of the PDP Delta State, congratulate our worthy, able, dynamic, cerebral, amiable and caring Governor, His Excellency, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa (Ekwueme), Executive Governor, Delta State and leader of our great Party in the state, on the First Anniversary of your assumption of office as the Executive Governor of Delta State.
Your landslide, pan-Delta victory at the polls on April 11, 2015, coupled with your various legal triumphs, culminating in the ultimate victory at the Supreme Court, was not only a testimony of the unwavering confidence of Deltans to entrust you with their mandate to govern them, but indeed a confirmation that power comes from God and your election victory had already been ordained from the beginning and endorsed with divine blessing.
This victory is not only personal, but is indeed a triumph to all members of our great party, to all lovers of peace, unity and progress; and to all those who believe in democracy. We are proud to say that even in victory, you have remained magnanimous, humble, accommodating and desirous to carry everybody along, including those who contested against you during the various stages of the electioneering process.
The PDP, Delta State, commends the exemplary patriotism, selflessness and dedication which His Excellency, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa, has continued to demonstrate throughout his long, illustrious and very successful career as a political leader and administrator, towards ensuring the progress and well-being of Delta State and Deltans
We salute your integrity, wisdom, hard-work and visionary leadership which has contributed in no small measure, to the successes of our great party, not only in Delta state, but at the South South zonal and national levels.
We applaud your Excellency for always remaining focused in upholding the democratic principles, which have enabled Deltans, especially in our great party, to operate in an environment that allows for full expression of their political will and the protection of their inalienable rights to freely participate in the electoral process without any form of hindrance or intimidation.
Our admiration and Special congratulations also goes to the woman of substance and courage, who has stood by our leader through thick and thin, with her love and prayers over the years; Her Excellency, Evangelist (Dame) Edith Okowa, First Lady of Delta State.
We also wish to commend our leaders, elders, youths, women and Party faithful, past and present; indeed all Deltans who, despite the attendant challenges have shown enormous resilience and determination in standing firm with our great party and building a united, strong and prosperous PDP and Delta State, over the years,
The emergence of Your Excellency has signaled the fulcrum of re-birth and the sustenance of internal democracy in our party and we wish to express our support and appreciation for your deep commitment and unshakable resolve to improve lives and ensure prosperity for all Deltans, through the YAGEP, STEP, PPSP, the Micro-credit scheme for small and medium enterprises, and other Job creation programmes, as well as, the well thought out and structured SMART Agenda, already manifesting in the completion and massive commissioning of life impacting projects, across the three senatorial zones, to commemorate the first Anniversary of your assumption, as the Executive Governor of Delta State.
As we join Deltans, both at home and the Diaspora, to celebrate the First Anniversary of the administration of His Excellency, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, the Executive Governor of Delta State, it is our prayer that Almighty God grants our leader and Governor, the continued good health, divine guidance, courageous authority and many more years of worthy contributions to the development of Delta State.
We also urge all Deltans, PDP faithful, compatriots and well wishers, to reflect on the essence of our unity and remain steadfast to one harmonious Delta State, by showing love to one another, supporting government’s efforts in achieving its laudable objectives and the vision of our founding fathers, and indeed working with the PDP to ensure that we remain the number one party in Delta state.
Congratulations Your Excellency and Happy Democracy Day Celebrations.
