Okowa Promises To Harness Best Brains To Govern Delta
THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, has promised to the best brains in the state to run an inclusive administration that will unite rather than divide Deltans.

The Senator representing Delta North made this known when he paid a condolence visit to Delta state Co ordinator of Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN), Prince Ned Nwoko, in his country home, in Idumuje Ugboko yesterday.
Okowa who was accompanied by Chief Peter Nwaoboshi, equally used the opportunity to smoothen the frosty relations with Nwoko caused by the out come of the 2011 senatorial election.
Okowa said Delta state has abundance of intellect and talent, which he would harness as the governor to transform the social and economic landscape od the state.
According to Okowa “ no single individual can claim to know it all and my duty is to identify these brains and talents to get the best for the people and the state.
Nwoko told Vanguard that TAN is committed to mobilising grassroots support for Dr. Okowa and President Goodluck
Jonathan in the February general elections.”
He said TAN has set up state structure to support the Okowa Campaign, which is now in full swing.
Nwoko said Okowa has a pan Delta vision, which is what the state needs to build a prosperous future.
