The commissioners are Mrs. Flora Alatan, Chief James Augoye, Mr Basil Ganagana, Mr Peter Mrakpor, and Prof. Patrick Muoboghare and Chief Festus Ochonogor, Chief Chika Ossai and Chief Patrick Ukah.
The Delta State Governor described the newly appointed commissioners as seasoned politicians and tested administrators and tasked them to work with the civil servants to ensure development in the state.
Okowa emphasized that the new commissioners should be punctual, creative and have the zeal to go extra mile in carrying out their duties so as to transform the state’s economy and impact on the people.
He said: “you must lead by example. Do not expect your staff to be punctual if you are in the habit of coming late to the office.
“As the saying goes, everything rises and falls on leadership. The buck stops at your table.”
Responding on behalf of the others, Muoboghare thanked God for the appointment and appreciated the governor for finding them worthy to serve.
He pledged the commissioners’ resolve to render effective and efficient service to the people.
Our goal to build a #StrongerDelta requires all hands on deck. This is why, today, I was pleased to swear-in the highly capable men and women that will be serving as Commissioners in the Delta State Executive Council. pic.twitter.com/i9RFHpghKj
