He said: “The state government is committed to developing all sectors in line with the stronger Delta mantra of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa. This is the reason we call on everyone to support the present administration.”Moronkeji commended the government for providing facilities for the Appeal Court’s take-off in Asaba, even as she said siting it in the capital was a big plus to the state.
The SSG, who was accompanied by the Commissioners for Housing, Chief Festus Ochonogor, Energy, Basil Ganagana and Lands and Survey, Mr. Churchill Amagada, also inspected facilities at the Headquarters of the 63 Brigade Nigeria Army, Asaba.

I.M Jalo thanked the government for its support, and assured Nigerian Army would continue to maintain peace and security in the state.
Meanwhile, the state government has charged contractors handling projects in the state to give value for money.The SSG gave the charge when he visited the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Orientation camp, Issele-uku to inspect completed block of hostels and residential facilities built by the state.
Ebie, who is also the Chairman of the NYSC Governing Board, said:“Government will not tolerate shoddy jobs by any contractor, as it does not portray government’s good intentions for its citizens. “
The State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mrs. Ruth Olutayor Samuel, expressed appreciation to the state government for constructing hostels and residential facilities in the camp, which would help to decongest the camp during orientation exercise.
