Okowa tasked on traditional institution

Okowa tasked on traditional institution

Delta State Gover­nor, Sen Ifeanyi Okowa, has been cautioned to stop dese­crating and humiliating traditional institution and rulers.
The former Minister of State for Education, Olorogun Kenneth, gave this warning yesterday in a statement in Abuja.
Reacting to Gov Okowa’s statement, Gbagi, in a statement by his Legal Assistant, Charles Jonah, said, “My attention has been drawn to the state government’s reaction with regard to the comments I made in my press state­ment. Nothing can bring peace to the Niger Del­ta without truth, fairness, equity and equal distribu­tion of wealth of the peo­ple and most especially re­spect for one another.
“It is a notorious fact that I defend Okowa’s govern­ment as much as I believe from his campaign days to date; it is therefore shameful to misconstrue my support for Okowa to the detriment of my tribe and people, talk­less of my traditional fathers.
“It is, therefore, irrespon­sible for anybody to insinu­ate that my comments were politically laced. Let records be put straight that I hold distinguished titles from Okpe Ughelli and Olomu, respectfully. So, my posi­tion with regard to my tra­ditional fathers cannot be wrong. While my position about the visit remains un­changed, we do not need the wastage of tax payers’ money to carry out a fact-finding situation of Delta people.”
Describing the Vice Pres­ident, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, as a man who has respect for the aged, for institution, Gbagi said, “Every sensi­ble persons and govern­ment know the truth and should know what to do.
