A foremost political support group in the state, the Bridge Builders, has been commended for the effort put into the electioneering campaign of the People’s Democratic Party for the 2019 general election.
The Senior Political Adviser to the Governor of Delta State, Honorable Funkekeme Solomon, gave the commendation today when a delegation of the group led by its convener, Mr Peter Idion, visited him in Asaba.
Honourable Solomon noted that the group not only mobilized support for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, but also backed it up with prayer in line with the belief of the state government that prayer was key to any success in life.
He said the Slogan of the group was instructive of the Stronger Delta vision of the Okowa administration aimed at bequeathing safety, development, justice, equity, prosperity and ethnic harmony to Deltans.
The Senior POLAD urged the Bridge Builders to sustain its support for Governor Okowa and to continue to champion the cause of peace and unity among Deltans to facilitate the attainment of the Stronger Delta vision.
In an address read on behalf of its Chairman, Raph Obioko, by Mr Philip Igumbor, the group felicitated with the Senior Political Adviser on his appointment, which it said was well deserved.
