By Austin Ogwuda
Asaba—DELTA State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, yesterday, appealed to lawmakers in the state to “help facilitate the passage of the 2013 budget to enable the executive actualise set goals this year.”
Chief Adviser to the Governor on Legislative Matters, Mr. Emmanuel Okoro, who, in a letter to the state House of Assembly to mark the resumption of its sitting from the Christmas and New Year recess, also commended the lawmakers for their robust achievements so far.
Welcoming his colleagues from the break, the Speaker, Mr. Victor Ochei, assured Deltans that the House would continue to play its constitutional role of promoting good governance in the state.
Okoro, who was the pioneer Speaker in the state, said in the letter that “although there might have been occasional disagreements between the executive and legislative arms, dialogue and understanding, which have continually been the hallmark of true democrats, had led to agreement and hence peace.
“May I also use this opportunity to commend the leadership of the House for the massive infrastructural development currently going on in the House. There is no doubt that this will create a more conducive environment for you to carry out your legislative duties.”
