Speaking at the event, Governor Diri lauded Okowa for linking communities in oil-rich Warri with motorable roads and providing functional schools.
He described Okowa as the pride of the Peoples Democratic Party and a promise keeper and urged him not to relent in endearing himself to Deltans with his human capital and infrastructural development.
