As a state, we have created employment across different strata, brought in different investors and the infrastructural development is second to none.
So I want to tell you all today, to take advantage daily of the SMART Agenda of this Government as it is God's Gift to humanity, Deltans specifically."
In the same vein, the Honorable Commissioner for Special Duties (Government House) Hon. Henry Sakpra, who also spoke at the meeting added that the appointment of Ward liaison has brought governance closer to the people.
Hon. Sakpra who told the officers that their appointments where not because they are best, but because they are closest to the people and as such should not as a result of their appointments distance themselves from those who they were appointed to serve.
Speaking to newsmen on behalf of the LGA Coordinators, Comr Godspower Omafuvwe Asiuwhu who coordinates Ward liaison officers in Patani Local Government thanked the Delta State Government for the opportunity to report directly events happening in their locality, adding that "it makes the people feel the direct impact of the Government"
