Two aides of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, Mr. Okoh Ezekiel Oghenetega and Mr. Ossai Success, Special Assistant on Students Affairs and Special Duties (Media), respectively, have awarded scholarship to the winner of 2017 Mr. Delta State University, Isodje Victor, in the beauty pageant organised by Delta State University and College of Education, Warri.
Addressing students at the pageant, the aides said it was paramount to note that their gesture was in line with Governor Okowa’s five-point agenda encapsulated in SMART (Strategic Wealth creation projects and provision of jobs for all Deltans; Meaningful peace building platforms aimed at political and social harmony; Agricultural reforms and accelerated industrialisation; Relevant health and education policies; and Transformed environment through urban renewal).
“We are grateful to the governor, who has given us this opportunity, as the economic downturn, which has taken a harsh toll on parents, needs palliatives from well-meaning individuals and groups,” they added.
