The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Right Honourable Monday Igbuya, on Saturday commended Deltans at home and abroad for projecting the state in positive direction.
He also paid homage to prominent personalities who laid the foundation of the state.
Igbuya spoke to journalists in Asaba during the 25 year anniversary celebration of the state yesterday, highlighting on the journey of the Sixth Assembly in its first year.
“We have accomplished great tasks. However, we can never consider what we have achieved to be sufficient. We are determined to accomplish even more and greater tasks. We shall raise Delta State to the level of the most prosperous in the country” he said.
The Speaker who described members of the Delta State House of Assembly as noble characters not only demonstrated his conviction about collective governance but commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for his judicious use of resources and meticulous planning to overcome potential challenges.
“Government is a serious business and if we ever hope to set out of the nation’s grim economic predicament, we must of necessity employ the fundamental principles of serious business”.
He promised that the current administration would deepen the socio-economic and political development of the state.
“The current administration will put in place extensive infrastructural facilities and services with equitable and fair spatial outreach in order to better the standard and quality of life of all citizens. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government in Delta State will narrow the urban-rural development gap and reduce socio-economic disparities” he said.
