Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has given N2million to a baby delivered at a political rally ground of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
One Mrs Odiri Benjamin of Ward 10 Unit 7, Ekaka Village Kokori delivered a baby girl at the campaign ground.

This is as thousands of Deltans on Tuesday defied heavy down-pour to attend the campaign rally of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ughelli South with excited Governor Ifeanyi Okowa expressing joy that Deltans are appreciating the development projects of his administration.
The heaven was opened at Otu-Jeremy, Ughelli South local government area where thousands of Deltans sang and danced in the rain.
Governor Okowa at the rallies which also took place at Obiaruku, and Isiokolo, in Ukwuani, and Ethiope East local government areas of Delta State, expressed joy that Deltans appreciate the projects and programmes executed by his administration.
“I am happy that the projects and programmes we have executed have met the yearnings and aspiration of Deltans which has led to these excited crowd. Good people of Delta State, in the next four years, we will construct more roads,” he said.
The campaign rally at Isiokolo was spectacular as several members of the opposition political party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) decamped to the PDP.
The governor at Obiaruku observed that massive crowd that came out for the rally was expected as the party has always won in the area and the votes should increase bearing in mind that their son, a Delta northerner is seeking re-election as Governor.
