According to him, it was not normal to ask Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to name his successor, adding that: “We cannot be weakened in our resolve to sustain our ‘Stronger Delta agenda of strengthening the health sector, roads, agriculture, tackling issues of erosion across the state among others.
“We are aware that we are in Democratic settings; we don’t have problems with anyone who wants to context 2023 elections but it is not normal to ask the governor to name who he wants to handover to”.
Aniagwu who spoke further told Deltans that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa would remain focused on delivering the dividends of democracy to them.
Saying that state government efforts and campaign for foreign direct investment was already yielding result particularly at the Kwale Industrial Park for employment and wealth generations, he said the government would continue to create entrepreneurs through its various empowerment programmes to deepen its wealth and jobs creations in the current administration.
Also speaking during the briefing, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Olisa Ifeajika, stressed the need for Journalists to confront politicians who were already clamouring for 2023 with appropriate rules and regulations guiding electoral processes.
