SPEAKER of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Victor Ochei has called on Deltans in the Diaspora to key into the three-point development agenda of the Uduaghan-led administration.
Ochei made the call while delivering a keynote address at the 2012 edition of the Biennial Anioma USA Convention in Dallas, United States of America.
The Speaker said that the development vision of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan would bring about the delivery of sustainable democracy dividends and engender prosperity in the state.
“The need to actualise the three-point agenda, especially the human capital development component, gave rise to the establishment of the Delta State Micro-Credit Programme, which has impacted positively on the society,” he stated.
Ochei urged Deltans to take advantage of abundant human and natural resources in the state to improve their lives and grow the state economy.
The Speaker equally used the occasion to clear the air on “some misperceptions about governance” in Delta. According to him, governance in the state is “premised on the core values of transparency, accountability and good faith negotiation”.
He therefore called on prospective investors to come home and invest in the economy of the state, noting that government “will offer all necessary support to ensure a friendly environment for business”.
Also at the occasion, Hon Peter Onwusanya (Oshimili South Constituency), explained to the gathering the on-going transformation in the education sector of the state.
He described the reform as a positive index in the government’s quest to provide qualitative education for the populace.
His words: “The education sub-sector in the state is undergoing both infrastructural and administrative transformation.
Model primary schools of global reckoning will be built in the 25 local government areas of the state”.
On his part, Hon Godfrey Ofobruku (Uvwie Constituency) advised Deltans to expect a better future in the state, as the three tiers of government would work together for this purpose.
