Delta ESG visits Okowa, plans to drive SMART agenda


ASABA—Members of Delta Economic Summit Group, a private sector driven economic think-tank and advocacy group, have paid a courtesy call on Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of the state.

Welcoming members of the group, Governor Okowa, said that he was impressed that professionals with varied backgrounds from Delta State had come together on their own accord, to form a  policy driven think-tank, which plans to help the state government achieve it’s SMART agenda, and generally improve the lives of the citizens of Delta State.

He said that the state government needed the help of the private sector to achieve its plans, which DESG can help achieve.
