Following the quest for the return of Senator Dr. Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa to Government house in 2019, a social political pressure group, Team Ibori For Okowa 2019, has embarked on the inauguration of Local Government Chapters of the group round the state.
The inauguration of the chapters is a follow-up of the constituted but yet to be inaugurated pioneer State Working Committee to complement efforts of the state, local governments, wards and units working committees as contained in the group’s operational scope.
The State Coordinator of the group, Hon. Edmond Guanah, in his welcome address during the inauguration of the Patani Local Government Chapter, reeled out the philosophy that informed the formation of the group.
He noted that as admirers of the State Governor Okowa, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, members of the group assembled themselves with every noble effort to accelerate the pace of existing peace, progress and development in the state.
Recounting the gains of the present administration over the pains that comes with the economic recession, the State Coordinator noted that Governor Okowa is a leader who is more than prepared to pilot the state’s ship in the direction of peace, security, prosperity for all, progress and development.
He therefore advised those to be inaugurated to conduct themselves and their affairs in both private and public in decent manners to attract commendations of all, noting that the two names that bears the group (Ibori and Okowa) are notable and respected names that needs to be protected and defended in character and service to the world around them.
