Delta state governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, has congratulated Chief Festus Keyamo (SAN), on his inauguration as Minister of State, Niger Delta.
Okowa said Keyamo’s appointment was well deserved, considering his antecedents as a lawyer of repute and urged him to bring his wealth of experience to bare on his new job in order to address the myriad of challenges bedevilling the Niger Delta.
Governor Okowa alluded to Keyamo’s achievements as an eminent legal practitioner and expressed confidence that the minister would use his office to attract infrastructural development to Delta and the Niger Delta.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika Thursday in Asaba, Okowa 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.”
