Delta State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has paid glowing tribute to Acting President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, as he turned 60 years on Wednesday.

Governor Okowa in a statement on Tuesday in Asaba by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Aniagwu, lauded the Acting President for his commitment to the restoration of peace in the Niger Delta.

The Governor noted that the Acting President’s diplomatic shuttles to the states of the Niger Delta coupled with some of the utterances emanating from the Presidency in recent times had contributed immensely to the stability in the region.

He stressed that the people of the Niger Delta owe the Acting President a great deal of commendation as his diplomatic shuttles and firm commitments to the resolution of the teething problems of the region has paid off in the cessation of hostilities in the creeks.

The Governor noted that Delta State was most impacted by the recent acts of vandalism and destruction of oil installations in the region, hence “we do not take it for granted that peace has finally returned to the region.”

"On behalf of the government and people of Delta State I congratulate His Excellency, The Acting President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, GCON on the occasion of his 60th birthday anniversary.
“The ideals of uncommon patriotism, unparalleled humility and sterling leadership qualities which you epitomise are worthy traits that will continue to inspire us in our S.M.A.R.T. Agenda,” the Governor stated.

He appreciated Osinbajo’s efforts in stabilising the Naira as he moves to stir the country out of recession. He wished him a happy diamond celebration and prayed that God would continue to bless him with good health, wisdom and many more years in the service of God and country.

Also on Tuesday, Okowa congratulated Justice Walter Samuel Onnoghen on his swearing-in as the 20th Chief Justice of Nigeria.

He expressed joy that Justice Onnoghen’s elevation to the highest judicial office in Nigeria is coming 30 years after the last southerner, Justice Ayo Irikefe, occupied the office in 1987.

In a statement issued in Asaba by his Chief Press Secretary, Governor Okowa noted that Justice Onnoghen was appointed at a time the judiciary was facing serious challenges occasioned by the trial of some Judges on corruption charges. He urged the new CJN to ensure a total reorganisation of the judiciary to bring back the confidence reposed on the judiciary as the last hope of the common man.
