A chieftain of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has called on Deltans especially those who felt they are shortchanged in the appointments of the state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, to make demands of development instead of appointments.
Chief Onuesoke, argued that it would have been better for Deltans to agitate for development from Governor Okowa than demanding for appointments that might not spread to all, but few.
He added that if it is development that had to do with provision of good roads, health facilities, education, industrialisation and provision of jobs it will touch majority of the lives of people of Delta State.
“Although Okowa had achieved a lot in job creations hence his government had created over 20,000 jobs, it would have been better to ask the Governor to create programmes that will generate more jobs, build more roads, housing projects, education, and health among others than agitating for appointments.
He stressed that their agitation for political appointments is not a yard a stick for measuring development in their environment, adding that it is better to agitate for more development than asking for appointments that would touch the lives of few people
Onuesoke who made the statement Saturday in Warri, while reacting to protests over appointments from the different tribes in Delta State said such protests are uncalled for hence the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa had made salient appointments which spread equitably across the different tribes of the state and it is expected that more appointments would still roll in.
While urging Deltans to exercise patients that more appointments would still roll in as assured by Governor Okowa, he stated that Okowa had already made salient appointments recently, adding that as promised by him many more appointments would be made and it will be done equitably to all.
