The #executive governor of Delta State, #Mr Ifeanyi Okowa has announced a five-point agenda that his administration intends to focus on within the next four years; though one wonders if he will be completing his tenure following the fraudulent manner in which he rose to become the number one citizen of #Delta State, and the pending electoral fraud suits that have been filed before the election #tribunal against him.
The agenda, tagged SMART, means: Strategic wealth creation; Meaningful peace building platforms; Agricultural reforms and accelerated industrialisation; Relevant education and health policies; and a Transformed environment through urban renewal, The Punch reported. But, how does the governor intend to achieve his goals and ensure that his agenda for #state succeeds?
“It is the common thread running through our policies and programmes in education, health, agriculture, industrialisation and infrastructure development. We shall embrace and embark on projects and programmes only when we are convinced and satisfied with their job creation content,” he said.
“#Delta State has vast potential and capacity in the production of rubber, oil palm, rice, yam, cassava, potato, plantain, tomato and fish.
The governor promised to improve the standard of living of the people of Delta by reforming the environment and focusing on urban renewal.
“We shall strive to upgrade the infrastructure of selected towns in each federal constituency to ensure even development in the state; to attract investment, boost and stimulate economic growth,” he said.
He pledged to work with the private sector to meet the challenge of housing in the cities and put measures in place to address the housing needs of the poor.
The governor also said that emphasis would be placed on technical and vocational education that would empower the people with requisite knowledge and entrepreneurial skills for business, trade and commerce.
