No chieftaincy titles for me while in office, says Okowa

Delta State Governor Ifeanyi  Okowa has said he will not accept any chieftaincy title while in office.

He said all titles will be deferred until after his tenure.

Okowa spoke yesterday when he visited the Odio Ologbo of Oleh in Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State, Anthony Ovramwah,  who was celebrating his 80th birthday.

The governor, who was also in Oleh to inaugurate and inspect projects to mark his second year in office, hailed the communities that desired to honour him with chieftaincy titles.

He said such titles would be taken after leaving office.

Okowa said: “I will not take chieftaincy titles during my tenure as governor. All titles will be deferred till after I leave office.”

The governor said he needed to concentrate on the delivery of dividends of democracy to Delta residents.

He congratulated the Odio Ologbo on his birthday and wished him more happy years on earth.
