The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated the Governor of Delta state and Chairman of South South Governors’ Forum, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as he marks his 61st birthday.
The PDP communicated this in a statement signed and delivered by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, to the Atlantic Post in Abuja, to celebrate the governor on his birthday.
The party described Governor Okowa as an outstanding patriot and excellent administrator, who has dedicated his time, energy, resources and intellect towards the development and wellbeing of not only his state, Delta, but also the Niger Delta region and Nigeria at large.
The PDP also described Governor Okowa as a serious minded, down-to-earth and people-oriented leader, whose selfless service to the people, as a medical doctor, senator of the Federal Republic and now, the executive governor of Delta state, has brought pride to the party and country.
The party said it also notes with pride the achievements of Governor Okowa with the massive infrastructural and human capital development in critical sectors of life across the three senatorial districts of the state, in line with the manifesto of the PDP and the vision of its founding fathers.
The PDP also applauded Governor Okowa for his efforts towards the development and stability of the PDP at all levels, particularly during the party’s trying time.
“We therefore join millions of Nigerians in felicitating with Governor Okowa and praying that the almighty God grant him good health at this critical time in his life as well as imbue him with strength and courage as he continues in his service to his state and the nation at large,” the PDP added.
