ABUJA- A group called Niger Delta Brotherhood Initiative, NDYBI, on Monday, lauded Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State over swearing-in of Evangelist Light Diden and others as commissioners in Delta State Independent Electoral Commission, DSIEC, in Asaba.
This was contained in a statement signed by the National Coordinator, NDYBI, Comrade Austin Obule, where he stated that Okowa was divinely directed to make the appointments, because he was a God-fearing man.
According to Obule the appointees, particularly Diden has a track record of selfless service to humanity through her ministry given by God.
He said: “We in Niger Delta Brotherhood Initiative, NDYBI, hail Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, over his wisdom to appoint persons of proven integrity and outstanding track records, particularly, Evangelist Light Oritseweyimi Diden, an eminent personality who is known for her achievements in touching and transforming lives.
“Governor Okowa is such a leader who goes for the best hands that could translate his dreams and aspirations for the betterment of Deltans, and he does it with all sense of carefulness and proper consultation.
“Today is another demonstration of his wisdom given to him by God to appoint and swear-in a woman and wonder of God, Evangelist Diden, into a sensitive office such as Delta State Independent Electoral Commission, DSIEC, as one of the commissioners for this noble public service organization in the state.
“We strongly believe Diden and other of her colleagues appointed as commissioners by the Governor would deliver the expected service they are appointed for according to the law and leading of God for all Deltans to benefit, which also they would be carried along because of their pedigree and readiness to serve the good and great people of the state.”
He also called on Deltans to join hands to support the newly sworn-in commissioners and also promised that his organization would support them to ensure they deliver their mandate according to the law in all fairness and justice.
“We once again give our support for the Commission and its commissioners to translate the confidence and trust of the Governor into action that would impact positively on the socio-political lives of Deltans and non-Deltans”, he added.
