''Let me thank my brother, the governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, for the great work he is doing for our party and for the people of Delta state.
"I had planned to visit Delta for a long time; I was salivating because many of these projects I saw them on television.
"I am particularly happy that I am inaugurating this road named after my good friend the late Amb. Ralph Uwechue, was a great intellectual, diplomat, and journalist and he deserves the honour that Delta has extended to him.
"You have done well for honouring citizens that have done well in contributing to the development of Delta and Nigeria.
"Delta indigenes have put Nigeria on the map in different ways, including soccer."

The governor made the call in a keynote address entitled "The Christian and Responsibility" which he delivered at the Standing Committee Meeting of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) held at All Saints Cathedral, Rumuokwurusi, Port-Harcourt, Rivers state.
