Why I want to govern Delta, by Okocha

By Gbenga Oke

Delta State gubernatorial aspirant, Mr. Peter Okocha, has said that his vision to govern the state was borne out of passion to return the state to its pacesetter status in the league of states in the country.

He also said his vision was to ensure Delta State becomes the best developed state with the highest standard of living in the country.
In a chat with Vanguard, Okocha said government was a continuous progression without breaks or discontinuity and consequently, his administration, if elected, will consolidate on the good works of the present administration.

He said: “Coming from a private sector, my exposure as an international businessman and my sojourn through extensive political experience, which I gained during the Shagari administration, has prepared me to give my best to Delta State if given the opportunity.”

On his plans for education in Delta State, he said: “I believe education should be affordable, accessible, functional and driven by the market and I feel strongly it could be provided through government-private sector partnership with in-built mechanisms that cater for the needs of the qualified poor segments of our state.

“Broad objectives shall be realised through massive investments in schools infra-structure, safety and security of schools, while comprehensive fencing of schools in the state will be done.”
