The Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, May 16, signed six bills into law, stating that with the cooperation of all arms of government a stronger state would be built.
The governor, who spoke after signing the six bills into law, observed that it was a collective responsibility for all Deltans to contribute towards building a virile state that would be the pride of all.
Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Sheriff Oborevwori, who was accompanied by his Deputy, Friday Osanebi and other principal officers of the legislature, presented the bills to the governor.
One of the bills, which have now become law, is the Warri/Uvwie and Environs Special Area Development Agency bill.
According to Okowa, “The Warri/Uvie and environs development agency law was initiated following the successes recorded with the Delta State Capital Territory Development Agency.
The law was borne out of the positive impact we have made in the development of the state capital using the Capital Territory Development Agency; in 2015, we saw the need for a special agency to handle the development of the capital territory, three years after, we have seen the positive impact this has made in Asaba and its environs.”
He continued, “I believe that from the beginning of my second tenure, we will pay special attention to the development of Warri, Uvwie and environs as I promised the people; this agency will ensure the maintenance of existing infrastructure and improvement of general infrastructure in the area.”
Other bills that were signed into law include: Bill to provide for the establishment of the Delta State Urban Water Corporation, Small Town Water Supply and Sanitation Agency, The Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency, The State Water Sector Regulatory Commission; Bill to Regulate the Registration, Establishment, Operations, Conduct, Monitoring
