I owe No Apologies For My Daughter’s Appointment As My Political Aide, Okowa Tells Deltans

The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa on Tuesday said he owes no one apologies for appointing one of his daughters as a political aide.

The Governor, who stated this at a media quarterly briefing in Asaba, the Delta State capital, insisted that his daughter was eminently qualified for the position.

“It is not true that I have two of my daughters appointed. I have only one appointed and she is rightfully qualified,” he said.

“I do not have any daughter on social media. The one appointed for girl child education is rightfully qualified.

“I do not have any apologies for that because I know the quality of daughter that I have,” he maintained.

Okowa also said the choice of who becomes the next governor of the state in 2023 would be determined by God.

“I am not God. I don’t make a governor. Nobody makes a governor. It is only God that can make one.

“The important thing is we want to ensure there is unity and equity and we will continue to work towards achieving a situation that keeps us united as Deltans, realising that working together makes us stronger as a people,” Okowa stressed.
