Governor Okowa Hails IBB At 78 For Creating Delta State

At 78, Okowa hails IBB for creating Delta state
Delta Governor, Sen. (Dr.) Ifeanyi Okowa, has
congratulated former military president, General
Ibrahim Babangida, as he clocks 78 years on Aug.
17.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr
Olisa Ifeajika, on Friday in Asaba, the governor
said that Babangida was an elder statesman
whose commitment to the unity and indivisibility
of the country remained resolute.
He extolled the former Nigerian leader for his
leadership qualities, and acknowledged his role in
the creation of Delta as a state and for remaining
an elder statesman and rallying point since
leaving office in 1993.
Okowa said that the people of Delta remained
eternally grateful to him for the creation of the
state in 1991.
“You created Delta in 1991 and as we celebrate
the 28th anniversary of the creation of our dear
state, we remember your astute and sagacious
contributions towards the realisation of our
dream.
“You had an illustrious military career which
culminated in your becoming military president of
the country.
``As a national icon and statesman, you occupy a
special place in the hearts of the government and
people of Delta, because without your benevolent
act, perhaps Deltans would have still been
agitating for their own state.
“So, on behalf of my family, the government and
people of the state, I heartily congratulate you,
our great leader and elder statesman, Gen.
Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, on your 78th birth
anniversary.
“As a distinguished patriot and leader, you served
the nation diligently in your quest to keep the
unity and diversity of our beloved country.
"As you continue to age gracefully, we thank you
for your kind contributions to nation-building,
particularly for the creation of our dear state,
Delta.
"It is my prayer that the good Lord will continue
to uphold and guide you in all your future
endeavours," he stated.
