Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has made good his promise to rehabilitate the burnt section of the Delta State Police Command Headquarters with the handing over of the keys to the structure to the Commissioner of Police, Dr Ali Mohammed Ari.
The keys were handed over by the State Commissioner for Housing, Chief Festus Ochonogor, whose Ministry supervised the job.
Ochonogor recalled that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had, while inspecting the burnt structure, promised that it would be fixed within one month, following which a contractor was engaged for the job.
He commended the contractor for doing a good job, pointing out that government’s intervention was to strengthen the relationship between it and the police to enhance the security of lives and property of the people of the state.
The Commissioner advised the police authorities to be more proactive to avoid future fire outbreaks.
Receiving the keys, CP Ali Mohammed Ari, thanked Governor Okowa for keeping to his promise to intervene in the rehabilitation of the burnt control room section, saying the Command would now be able to resume the transmission of signals to and from the field.
Ochonogor was accompanied to the police headquarters by the Permanent Secretary of his Ministry, Pastor Emmanuel Aghedo and a Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Security, Mr Chuka Imarhia.
