Delta State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has proceeded on a two-week vacation and his deputy, Dcn. (Barr) Kingsley Otuaro, will act as governor of Delta State, while Okowa enjoys his short vacation.
This detail was contained in a letter sent to the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon. Monday Igbuya, by Governor Okowa himself.
In the letter, the governor informed the state legislature of his intention to proceed on vacation from July 5 to July 20, 2016.
“In accordance with Section 190 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, His Excellency, Barrister Kingsley Otuaro, the Deputy Governor of Delta State, shall perform the duties of my office as Acting Governor during the period of my absence on leave”.
