Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, has congratulated a former Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Honourable Victor Ochei, on his appointment as Executive Director, Maritime Labour and Cabotage Services of the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
Ochei, was recently inaugurated into the NIMASA Board following a reorganisation in the Agency’s top hierarchy.
In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, j Olisa Ifeajika, the Governor said Ochei’s appointment was well deserved and urged him to use his good offices to attract development to Delta.
He particularly charged the former Speaker to look the way of Warri Port and other sea ports in Delta, which had been roundly neglected and currently inactive to ensure that they were revived, adding that the Executive Director should also make the protracted issue of dredging of the approach to Warri Port his priority concern.
Okowa remarked that Ochei, an engineer, lawyer, former lawmaker and businessman, was ably qualified for the position considering his years of service to the state and country.
He said as a Speaker, Ochei was brilliant, vibrant and exceptional as he carried his office with finesse and contributed immensely to the development of infrastructure at the State Assembly complex.
The Governor thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the appointment and urged Ochei to remain a good ambassador of Delta in his new office.
