Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has appealed to Deltans in the Diaspora to support his administration’s efforts at developing every facet of the economy of the state.

Governor Uduaghan spoke on Thursday at an interactive session between the Peoples Democratic Party governorship flagbearer, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, and prominent Deltans and friends of the state resident in Lagos. The event took place at the newly built governor’s lodge.

Uduaghan told the gathering that every aspect of Delta’s economy was expanding rapidly but needed the support of entrepreneurs of the state’s origin resident in Lagos. He appealed to Deltans to impress it on their foreign business partners to invest in the state to reduce unemployment, which is the goal of his Delta Beyond Oil Economic Development Model.

Speaking on the forthcoming elections, Governor Uduaghan said Senator Okowa’s emergence as the PDP governorship candidate was good for the state, adding that the Delta State PDP was working hard to ensure victory for President Goodluck Jonathan and Okowa.

On the new governor’s lodge, he explained that the old lodge was demolished and a befitting new one was built to give a befitting image to the state.

Senator Okowa in his remarks assured the gathering that if voted into power, he will partner with the private sector to consolidate on the investment gains of the Uduaghan administration.

He solicited the support of entrepreneurs of the state’s origin to buy into the Delta Beyond Oil initiative, promising that his administration would continue with the Warri Industrial Park as well as develop agricultural business parks to exploit the state’s vast agricultural potentials.

Senator Okowa promised to advance health care through a comprehensive health insurance package for the state, stressing that youth employment challenge will be addressed through skill training while also ensuring urban renewal.

The state Commissioner for Information, Barrister Chike Ogeah, in his welcome address, explained that the dinner was designed to enable critical stakeholders to interact with Okowa.
