Following the dissolution of the Delta State Executive Council (SEC) Tuesday, May 18, by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, Deltans have expressed mixed reactions on the development.
For Chief Austin Ukuwrere, the President General of Uvwie General Improvement Union (UGIU), the dissolution would offer others the opportunity to serve the state.
While noting that it was the first of its kind in the state, he said that it was done in good faith according to the promise of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, whom he said had assured Deltans that appointments would go round.
Ukuwrere who is a Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to Governor Okowa on Community Development maintained that it was not done to witchhunt anybody.
The Proprietor of Trust International School, Warri, Hon Mike Eboh was of the view that other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) faithful who laboured for the success of the party but have not been appointed should be allowed to have a “bite of the cake”, adding: “So, Governor Okowa has done a good thing”.
An Udu-born Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Akpojotor Adjarho equally posited that the dissolution was a welcome development but urged Governor Okowa to retain those that performed creditably well.
