Hon. Raymond Edijala, a former Executive Assistant to the immediate past Governor Ifeanyi Okowa on Project Monitoring, says the 8th Delta State House of Assembly is poised to synergize with the executive arm of the state government for the realisation of the MORE Agenda of the Governor Sheriff Oborevwori-led administration.
Edijala, a prominent leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from Udu Local Government Area of the state, said this while congratulating Rt Hon Emomotimi Dennis Guwor on his emergence as the Speaker of the State Legislature.
Recall that Rt Hon Guwor, a 44-year-old two-term member of the House who represents Warri South West Constituency, Tuesday, June 13, 2023, emerged unopposed as Speaker while Rt Hon Arthur Akpowowo, a first-timer representing Ethiope East Constituency emerged as the Deputy Speaker.
While congratulating Guwor and Akpowowo on their political elevations, Edijala described the duo as ‘a square peg in a square hole’ adding that they are cool, calm and calculative young men with deep passion for the empowerment and development of their constituents as well as consolidation of the landmark achievements of the Okowa administration.
“The emergence of Rt Hon Emomotimi Dennis Guwor and Rt Hon Arthur Akpowowo as Speaker and Deputy Speaker unopposed demonstrates the confidence and trust their colleagues in the 8th Delta State House of Assembly have for them.
“Such confidence, trust and maturity displayed by the 8th Assembly choosing their leadership of the House will not doubt snowball into healthy legislative activities including oversight functions need for the enactment of laws for the security and well-being of Deltans.
“Guwor and Akpowowo are vibrant young men with track records of service delivery to their people. Indeed, they will stir the ship of the House to bring about a robust relationship with the other arms of government in achieving the Oborevwori MORE Agenda.
“I look forward to a vibrant House with men of ideas itching to contribute their quota in the area of law-making for the good governance in Delta State,” said Edijala.
