"Deltans are wonderful, understanding people, through collaborative efforts, we have made great impact on the provision of infrastructure, development of our people to achieve prosperity for all Deltans; in the next four years, we hope to build on the successes we have made thus far, with God, effective partnership, we can," Governor Okowa who was presented with the award by former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Segun Osoba said.
