Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has disclosed details of the recent visit of Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State and Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, stating that it had nothing to do with politics as they were both in the state last week to attend the commencement of a youths empowerment entrepreneurship program which was organized under the state government’s Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme and Youth Agricultural Entrepreneurship Programme, as well as the commissioning of roads in the state capital.
He disclosed that there was no political undertone to their visit and people should disregard any report stating otherwise.
Governor Okowa stated this during a quarterly interactive session with the press which held in Asaba, describing Tambuwal the Governor of Sokoto State, and an APC chieftain as a close friend, who came to witness the strides of his administration, in terms of youth empowerment.
He said, “There’s no political undertone to the visit of governors Tambuwal and Wike to Asaba last week. I have read all manner of headlines as regard the visit.
“This is the third time Tambuwal will be visiting the state.
“He (Tambuwal) was here during my daughter ’s wedding. He visited again during the state ’s economic summit.
“He has been my close friend. If I had any reason to hold political meeting with him, it could have been held over there in Abuja.
“He has promised to send representatives to study our YAGEP and STEP’s programmes.”
