His Royal Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III, the Olu of Warri, has lauded Olorogun David Edevbie’s presentation of his vision for the development of Delta State.
Atuwatse III made the commendation in his palace in Warri when the PDP Governorship aspirant and his team visited him to seek his royal blessings.
Edevbie who has proposed a modernisation agenda for the state informed the Olu and his Chiefs that his key drivers towards engineering a robust state economy included the provision of 24 hours power supply and industrialisation.
These, he said, included the diversification of the state economic base, improvement of the security architecture, jobs and wealth creation, integrated social infrastructure development and public service reforms.
He also emphasised the need to heighten the development and interconnectivity of riverine communities, recharge operations at the Warri and other seaports and the creation of enabling environment to re-attract companies back to Warri and environs to increase employment and enterprise opportunities for the people.
Responding, Ogiame commended Edevbie, describing his presentation as a brilliant lecture
The Olu said he had always prayed that whoever would take over from Governor Ifeanyi Okowa should be someone who had the ideas and capacity to do the right thing to drive the development of the state.
He pointed out that the development of the Niger Delta which was led by Delta State would impact on the development of Nigeria.
According to him “When Delta State gets it right, Nigeria as a whole will feel the effect because Delta is critical to the entire nation,” Atuwatse III said.
