The Speaker,  Delta House of Assembly, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, has congratulated people of the state on the 30th anniversary of its  creation.
The speaker also  called for  more support to the Delta Governor,  Sen.  Ifeanyi Okowa.

”The anniversary is a thing of joy as a lot of positive changes has taken place in the state, in the last 30 years.
“In each of the passing decade, there has  been a lot of improvements by successive governments.
” Presently, the state is stable and peaceful, there is unity and peaceful coexistence. United we stand and divided we fall and so we must continue to be united as a people.
“As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the creation of the state, let us collectively shun all divisive tendencies.
” Let us therefore,  resolve to join hands and move our dear state to enviable heights. One thing you must know is that  development thrives where there is peace, ”he said.
The speaker lauded Okowa for his visionary leadership and  achievements of his administration.
“Our governor has done very well and his achievements are there for all to see. I want to use this opportunity to congratulate Okowa  on the anniversary  and to appeal to all residents  to continue to give him the needed support.
“I also thank residents for their supports so far to the state and implore all to help sustain the peace we are enjoying today.
 “ No nation develops in a crisis situation. For the state to move forward, we must sustain the existing peace, unity and love amongst us,” he added.(NAN)
