Group Advocates New Administrative Structure For DESOPADEC

FOR the effective management of Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC) the Deltans Oil and Gas Development Group has suggested that the commission should have a chairman/ managing director at its helm of affairs.
The suggestion, which was part of the proposals by the group to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in an open letter titled “The Deltans Oil And Gas Development Group Congratulates a True Humanitarian Leader” dated Monday 22nd June 2015 and made available to newsmen
In the open letter signed by Comrade Egavoja Lennox Gold (President General), Comrade Godwin Ikogho (Secretary General) and Comrade Daniel Umuakparo (Public Secretary), the group stated among other things that advocated for appointment of the next chairman / managing director of DESOPADEC now that it is turn of the Urhobos.
Our proposal for the review of DESOPADEC is: that the head of the commission should be the chairman/Managing Director. He will be the chairman of the board while holding meetings with the board members; and serves as managing Director, who is the chief accounting officer of the commission.
“There should be a general manager next to the Chairman/Managing Director; who will be a direct assistant to him on all duties, chores and fronts.
“All the commissioners appointed or directors, so called, will all be located in their various areas, except when they are attending meetings that’s when they could be invited to the central office.
“The other categories of staff will be adopted in relation to the former structure of the commission.
While congratulating Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa on his swearing as the Governor of Delta State, the group had earlier in the letter observed with admiration the steady political transformation of the governor over the years and stated that it was not surprise at the historic feat encased in his electoral victory.
“The landslide victory recorded, no doubt is testimony of your acceptance and a called to greater service for our dear state. As you had taken over the mantle of leadership of Delta State we assure you of our continue support and loyalty as ever.”
