One of the most media friendly Senior Special Assistant to the Delta State Governor, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa on Security in Delta State, Comr. Daniel Ezekiel has in his independence day press release called for a more egalitarian state where the rule of law will fully be operational.
The SSA made this known to newsmen in Warri earlier today via a statement issued to newsmen, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspaper.
While hailing Nigeria democracy for improving, Comr. Daniel had particularly tasked Deltans to seek peace in order to pave way for more investors in the state.
However, the SSA had warned against cultism, drug abuse, criminality and social vices of all kinds, stressing that betting days are ahead for youths who conducts themselves in the proper way.
Meanwhile, Comr. Daniel had further called for justice to the oppressed in the country, frowning that multinational oil companies operating in the Niger Delta Region are not doing enough in the development story of his people.
The statement read in full bellow:
OUR DEMOCRACY IS IMPROVING ,LET THERE BE EQUAL RIGHTS ,RULE OF LAW FOR ALL IN NIGERIA
Deltans Should Seek Peace As To Attract More Investors In The State
I wish all Deltans and Nigeria at large, @59th happy independence anniversary. Nigerian democracy is improving for better, despite we are yet to adhered to total obedience to rule of law. Lets join hands to build on our democracy. I call on Deltans to use Nigerian 59th years anniversary celebration to join hands with his Excellency, senator (Dr)Ifeanyi Okowa to maintain peace, law and order in the state as to attract more investors to the state.
It is worthy of note that Governor Okowa empowerment programme and SMART agenda is paying off, as it have put smile in many Deltans faces. Many are gainfully self_employed and others are been qualified into the Labour market. As Deltans we have all reasons to be grateful to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as he is among the most democratical governors in the country. He is a detribalised governor ,peace loving, unbias, and not sentimental. He has a passionate love for the development of our dear state.
Nigeria ,especially Delta state belongs to all of us ,and security of lives and property should not be left in the hands of government and security agencies alone, we must all join hands to nip in the bud any form of insecurity in any part of the state. I urge you as fellow youths to be always lawful and strive to take a leadership position as no one has monopoly of political power.
Again, to my fellow youths out there, l want you all to exhibit the highest form of decorum and shun any thing that will threaten the peace of the state as we go about celebrating our Nation’s independence day anniversary.
I want you to believe in yourself , work hard and desist from social vices such as drug abuse and cultism because it will only cut short your life and derail God plans for you. Am one of you ,if l can become Senior special assistant today, you can become Governor of this state in the future.
At this auspicious moment of Nigeria 59th birth anniversary, I call for justice for the oppressed people in Niger Delta. We all tend to be having equal rights but the reverse is the case. Oil companies are not living up to expectation, it should help to build peace and develop host communities of their operational areas. I call on leaders of Niger delta to be up and doing. They should help to pursue development of the region and among other things. It is their responsibility to make more emphasis on the development of the region. It is my advice that you don’t see your office as a means of self_powerment but use it to better the lives of the common man on the street.
