Okowa Has Intimidating Qualifications –Funkekeme

THE DELTA State Commissioner for Works, Hon. Funkekeme Solomon said that the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship candidate in the state’s 2015 general election, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa excelled in the concluded party primary election due to his intimidating qualifications, saying he would have easily won other contestants in a debate.
Hon. Funkekeme, who made the disclosure in a meeting with contractors handling on-going projects in the state in Asaba, recently, stressed on the need to complete them on schedule to pave way for the state government’s massive projects commissioning soon.
He cautioned the contractors on the dangers associated with the politicisation of contract, adding, ‘‘if it is your plan to abandon any project to bring down the government (Dr. Uduaghan’s) you will fail, because government is a continuous process’’.
According to him, the PDP in the state is highly rooted and would excel in the coming 2015 general elections because of the qualities of the candidates it fielded, adding that the party would hand over the state’s leadership baton to PDP at the end of the day.
The commissioner expressed satisfaction over Dr. Okowa qualifications, adding that as a Secretary to a Local Government and Chairman of Local Government Council, he carved a niche and as a Commissioner, Secretary to the State Government (SSG) and Senator he created indelible records.
‘‘Dr. Okowa’’, he said, ‘‘as far as the Governorship contest in the state is concerned, is the most experienced and qualified candidate and his success in the poll is so certain, because God will give him victory’’.
He noted that his success during the PDP primary stemmed from his qualification and experience in politics and administration, adding, ‘‘if there was a debate between him and other candidates, you would have marveled at the level of his performance. So, every contractor should work efficiently to complete his project well, because there will be no abandoned project for the in-coming PDP governor’’.
