We have an opportunity to move Warri forward together when we hinge on the Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa’s Stronger Delta Agenda and key legacies of peace and development established in our previous tenure.
As we get used to the new normals of Covid-19 and sell our proposal to Wafarians for the next tenure, let the campaigns be peaceful and bring us hope for a better Warri,”
