Governor of Delta, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, at the weekend charged elected and appointed politicians to maintain and sustain intimacy with their people by contributing to their socio-economic wellbeing.
The governor gave the charge at the empowerment for the people of Aniocha/ Oshimili Federal Constituency by the Minority Leader of House of Representatives and member representing the area in the Green Chamber, Rt. Hon. Ndudi Elumelu.
He described Elumelu as a true representative of the people in the area of empowerment and legislation, adding that the lawmaker was a vibrant voice for the PDP and the country.
He said the empowerment of 350 beneficiaries in small and medium scale enterprises was an enviable feat, stressing that other representatives at the federal and state levels should toe the line of Hon. Elumelu as such would help significantly in the fight against poverty and unemployment in the society.
Governor Okowa said that he was impressed with the giant strides of the Minority Leader in the area of sponsorship of Bills, human capital development and even in the distribution of basic amenities in Aniocha/ Oshimili federal constituency.
He equally thanked the leadership and stakeholders in Aniocha/Oshimili federal constituency for their sustained support and urged them not to relent as unity was needed to surmount challenges bedevilling the area.
