Amb. Francis made the commendation earlier today via a press statement issued to newsmen in Warri, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspaper.
Chief Francis, a notable leader and a force to reckon with in Ogulagha kingdom and beyond particularly described Hon. Asupa as a man that understands the plight of the people, stressing that he will continue to owe him in high esteem.
It would be recalled that Hon.

Chief Boumiebi had in the statement also applauded Hon. Pullah Ekpotuayerin, member representing Burutu South in the Delta State House of Assembly for dolling out millions in the buying and distribution of food items to his Burutu South constituents recently.
Speaking further, the Peoples Democratic Party chieftain in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, Chief Boumiebi, former vice chairman of the party in the Local Government had appreciated the massive food items worthing millions of naira purchased and distributed to all communities in oil rich Ogulagha kingdom, Burutu Local Government by the Shedrack Agediga Foundation (SAF).
He said the chairman of SAF, His Excellency, Amb. Shedrack Agediga has truly touched lives in Niger Delta, stressing that Ogulagha Kingdom and Niger Deltans will continue to owe him in high esteem.
Via a phone conversation with The Liberator Newspaper, Amb. Boumiebi particularly described Hon. Asupa, the holy Michael as a wonderful politician in the Local Government and beyond, stressing that he is lauding him for so many reasons as he has influenced series of appointments in the Local Government.
He said such political appointments will make the appointees self reliant and be largely independent within this administration.
Nevertheless, Boumiebi had appreciated members of the Ogulagha community, other communities in the kingdom and others across the Local Government for the preventive measures put in place to curtail the covid- 19 pandemic in the area which according to him has no landing place in the area as the people have fortified themselves.
The SSA to Governor Okowa said he has been on ground monitoring the activities ranging from compliance, preventive steps as well as other related activites since the beginning of the lockdown till date, maintaining that he has been silently assisting the people in his own little way at this trying moment.
Chief Francis had further called on the people to continue to adhere to the directives given by the Delta State Government, opining that the decision was for the best interest of Deltans.
