Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta has urged political leaders to selflessly work for the interest of the people and a better country.

He made the call on Saturday at the annual re-union of Class  81 of the Nigeria Airforce Military School, Jos which took place in Asaba.

The Governor decried a situation where money now determined who should hold what position at the expense of investing in health, education and good moral upbringing for children to enable them become good leaders and better citizens.
Okowa urged politicians to change their mindset about politics in order to get things right, adding that focus should be on what the people feel about governance and how the actions and inactions of government affect the people.

He said emerging political leaders must play by the rules and shun money politics in order to discourage  corruption and thuggery.

The Governor commended Class  81 of the Nigeria Airforce Military School for organising the annual reunion to create opportunity for the members to set agenda for themselves and for the good of the country. 

The leader of the delegation, Mr Gbenga Oyebode had earlier described Governor Okowa as a man with strong faith, committed to leaving enduring legacies for the people of the state..

He urged leaders to innovate, stay updated, keep learning and encourage more Nigerians to acquire education and give back positively to the society.

The event featured a lecture on ” Path to purposeful and Legacy Leadership.”
