In view of the numerous politicians clamoring for political appointments in Delta state, a clergy, the Venerable in charge of St. Michael Anglican Church Akumazi-Umuocha, Ven. Andrew Ogoegbulem has advised the Governor, His Excellency, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to watch out for sweet tongued politicians clamouring for political appointments while congratulating one of their own Hon. Charles Aniagwu on his swearing-in as Commissioner for information.
Ven. Ogoegbulem gave this advice over the weekend in a chat with our reporter at his office in Akumazi, Ika Northeast L.G.A. The clergy noted that many politicians are jostling for political appointments even when they do not make any input in the re-election of the governor. He urged the Governor to focus on those who have been with him from the onset who have been tested and trusted. Speaking further, he said the Governor’s second tenure is not for trial or training but a time to spread the dividends of democracy across the 25 local government areas across the state.
Therefore he said, the governor should make use of those he knows that have the capacity to function. The man of God congratulated Aniagwu who hails from Akumazi on his swearing-in as Commissioner for Information on Wednesday July 31, 2019 in Asaba while advising him to ensure he functions in line with the Governor’s SMART agenda in making sure those at the grassroots enjoy the dividend of democracy as the governor desires.
Venerable Ogoegbulem also added that the Commissioner to emulate the Governor’s Open Door Policy, adding that the Open Door Policy of Gov. Okowa is one of the things that endear him to the people. Ogoegbulem congratulated the governor on his sixtieth birthday while describing Sen. Okowa as a true gift from God. The amiable Minister of the gospel used the medium to wish His Royal Majesty (HRM) Henry Ezeagwugbo Jegbefume, the Obi of Akumazi, long life and prosperity on his reign.
The Man of God also congratulated Anslem Okwuokenye, Emeke Asiwe and others on their appointment.
