Delta State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has said his administration's advocacy for Deltans to invest in the state is paying off, as prominent indigenes are contributing in different ways to develop the state.

Okowa made the disclosure on Thursday while commissioning a Police station, primary school, and a primary healthcare centre, as well as the foundation laying ceremony of Margaret Lawrence University at Owere-Olubor and Ute-Ogbeje communities in Ika North East.

The projects were donated by Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation, founded by Mr Paul Odili.

According to the Governor, his administration was committed to providing the enabling environment for Deltans and investors to come to the state and partner with the state to ensure its speedy development, noting that private organizations had built and donated libraries to the state government and also constructed roads, among projects.

Okowa observed that with the enabling environment, which his administration has ensured, Deltans should expect more developmental projects from government, investors and public-spirited individuals.

“It gladdens my heart that our advocacy is yielding results. Our people are coming home to invest. A lot of investors are coming into our state and the multiplier benefits will be a lot of job opportunities for our people, developmental activities in different locations in our state and our people will fare better,” Okowa said.

“It is the Grace of God upon Delta State that has made it possible to be witnessing these developments,” he added.

The Governor commended the Fountain of Joy and Comfort Foundation for engaging in humanitarian activities.

The Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, who was represented by the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 5, Mr Abubakar Mohammed, said the Police would always carry out its duties as enshrined in the Police Act.

He commended the Foundation for boosting the security in the area by donating the Police Station.

Odili had said that what he was doing was spurred by divine call to assist the less privileged in the society.
