Diri Congratulates Okowa At 63
Bayelsa State Governor, Senator Douye Diri, has felicitated with his Delta State counterpart and Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, on his 63rd birthday.
Governor Diri, in a congratulatory message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Alabrah, on Friday, described Senator Okowa as an astute administrator and politician with an outstanding record of performance in governance and politics at the state and national levels.
Diri said Okowa’s exemplary run in all the public offices he had held were a testimonial to his peaceful disposition and his capacity to build bridges of unity and togetherness.
He noted that his choice as running mate to the PDP presidential flagbearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is equally an acknowledgement of Okowa’s unimpeachable patriotism and loyalty to the country and his party.
Diri further described Okowa as a trustworthy friend, brother and colleague in their collective effort to ensure a better Niger Delta region and Nigeria.
He prayed for God’s continuing blessings, grace and wisdom as he steps higher politically, saying Nigeria stands to benefit more from Okowa’s affable qualities and experience in governance.
