Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has described Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as a visionary leader who would leave behind worthy legacies in the state.
Osinbajo said this during the commissioning of the multi-billion naira Prof. Chike Edozien Secretariat Complex for civil servants and the 8.5 Megawatts Asaba Independent Power Plant (IPP).
According to the vice-president, the secretariat complex was a major monument enshrining the power and splendour of the authority of the state government, adding that the governor deserved commendation.
He said” Despite dwindling revenue receipt and severe resource constraints across all levels of government,” the governor “has been able to provide funding for this project.”
Civil servants require a well equipped, conducive workspace to inspire optimal service delivery.
“Public servants require an environment that brings out the best in them, and this secretariat complex would provide such an environment.
“The completion of this complex is another demonstration of what Okowa has shown over the years that with visionary leadership a state government can do incredible things indeed, and am sure this one would be a worthy legacy,” he added.
In his remarks, Okowa said the journey to build started in November 2017, adding that the journey was tough and arduous.
