By Eseoghene Emuke

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has hailed the appointment of Chief Festus Keyamo (SAN) as minister of (State) for Niger Delta by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Okowa described the appointment as well-deserved, and one that would spur socio-economic and infrastructural development of the Niger Delta region. 

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, on Thursday, the governor said Keyamo as a lawyer of repute, would bring his worth of experience to bear in his new assignment.

The governor, while thanking President Buhari for considering Keyamo to serve with him, he urged the appointee to use his position to address the myriad of challenges be-devilling the Niger Delta. 

While lauding him for his achievements as an eminent legal practitioner, Okowa expressed confidence that Keyamo would use his office to attract infrastructural development to Delta and the Niger Delta.

He said, “On behalf of the government and people of Delta, I congratulate our illustrious son, Chief Festus Keyamo (SAN), on his appointment as Minister of State, Niger Delta.

“Given the antecedents of Olorogun Keyamo as a brilliant and cerebral lawyer, I have no doubt that he will bring his wealth of experience to bear in changing the current narrative of infrastructural deficit, poverty and environmental degradation in Niger Delta.

“I thank President Muhammadu Buhari for finding an illustrious Deltan worthy to serve in his ‘Next Level’ cabinet.

“We pledge the commitment of our state to partner the Ministry of Niger Delta for effective development in Delta, especially in infrastructure and human capital development of our people.”
