The Governor who congratulated the Commissioners observed that the expectations of Deltans are high and urged them and other political appointees to see themselves as people who are “representing the entire Delta people in the cabinet, and that you are there to serve their interests, because, the task before us is huge; we have set the goal of building a Stronger Delta predicated on Prosperity, Peace and Progress.”
Responding on behalf of all the Commissioners who were sworn-in at the occasion, Prof. Muoboghare thanked the Governor for choosing them to be members of his team to build a stronger Delta, assuring that they will discharge their duties with the fear of God and will be fair to all Deltans.
