Delta Speaker urges more united, secured Nigeria for greater tomorrow


Asaba, Delta.

The Speaker of the Delta  House of Assembly, Mr Dennis Guwor has called for a more united and secured nation for a greater tomorrow.

Guwor made the call in Asaba on Sunday to mark Nigeria’s 63rd Independent Anniversary.

Guwor while congratulating Nigerians especially the people of Delta, said the multi ethnic diversity of the nation should be a great asset for positive development.

The speaker who said  that though a lot had been achieved as a people,  noted that there were much more needed to be done as a developing nation.

“I congratulate Nigerians, particularly the people of Delta on the 63rd Independence Anniversary.

” As a people,  we have not done badly but there are still a lot of things to be addressed.

”At 63, it is expected that by now we should have gone being seen as a developing nation but a developed nation. All the same, it is better late than never,” he said.

He also noted that Delta being one of the  major oil producing states, has contributed so much to the development of the country as oil remained the mainstay of the nation’s economy.

Guwor while stressing that the state would not relent in that regards, appealed to the Federal Government to address the present challenges confronting the nation.

Guwor who is the National Treasurer of Conference of Speakers of State Houses of Assembly, however expressed concern over the state of federal roads across the country and the disturbing issue of insecurity, added  that they were seriously affecting investments in Nigeria.

“So my appeal is for the Federal Government to address challenges facing the nation.

”A state of emergency is required in some sectors. Federal roads are in shambles. The plague of insecurity in the country continues to be so disturbing.

”All these and many others need to be tackled as quickly as possible to guarantee greater tomorrow,” Guwor said.

The speaker while praying for a better Nigeria, assured that Gov. Sheriff Oborevwori’s administration in Delta, promises to advance the state’s next level of sustainable development.

He reiterated the commitment of  the state legislature to partner with the executive arm of government and other critical stakeholders in moving the state forward.
