A PAN-Anioma development advocacy group, Anioma Media Professionals (AMP), has congratulated Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, over his multiple awards.

The professionals from Delta North Senatorial district gave the commendation in a statement by the Publicity Secretary, Mr. Ken Ugbechie.

AMP said the awards are clear manifestation of the governor’s lofty achievements in Delta State.

It recalled that Okowa had earlier been honoured with the African Leadership Grassroots and People’s Development Award. In the coming weeks, the governor would be mounting the dais to be decorated with Daily Independent Man of the Year Award 2018; Vanguard Governor of the Year Award; and Silverbird 2018 Man of the Year Award.


These awards, the body noted, rack up the governor’s trophy cabinet, which included the Mandela Medals of Human Rights Award 2016; the UI Alumni of the Year Award 2016; and the UNN Dignity of Man Award 2017 among others.

The statement reads: “We wish to congratulate you on the multiple awards being conferred on you by different media houses and agencies for the year 2018.

“It is a justification of the confidence we repose in you and a testimony to our long held belief that as governor of Delta State, you have acquitted yourself as a genuine development-centric leader, whose values transcend the mundane lines of ethnicity and bitter politics.”

The statement added that the awards also justify the AMP’s support for Okowa’s candidacy since 2014 when he emerged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s standard-bearer in the governorship election.

The experts further lauded the governor over his achievements, especially in the area of peace and security, infrastructure, job creation, youth empowerment and human capital development.

“While we congratulate you on these milestones, we make haste to remind you that this calls for commitment from you and your team, to sustain the high development standard that you have set in the state.

The professionals said they were impressed with the governor’s exemplary leadership, which has translated to peace and security in the oil-rich Delta.
