Ndokwa Ethnic Nationality Appeals To Gov Okowa To Replace Late Akozor On DESOPADEC Board

By Odili Ogochukwu –

The people of Ndokwa nation have appealed to Delta State governor, Sen.(Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa to consider getting a replacement for late Hon Ikechukwu Akozor on the board of Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC).

The Coalition of Ndokwa Peace Ambassadors (CONPA ) made the appeal recently in a statement made available to Africa Investigative Magazine.

CONPA appealed to Governor Okowa to get a replacement from Ndokwa East, noting that the reappointment of the DESOPADEC board member is due.

Recall that Hon. Ikechukwu Akozor was the commissioner representing Ndokwa ethnic nationality on the DESOPADEC board.

Late Hon Akozor who died on September 02, 2021 at a hospital in Asaba after a brief illness hailed from Aboh, Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State.

The group who spoke through her Public Relations Officer, Amb Jude Ugochukwu Nwaedozie urged Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to consider one of the sons or daughters of Ndokwa East for the position.

It was verified that on the passing of Mr. Joyce Overah, the commissioner representing Sapele, Ethiope West, and Okpe local government areas on the DESOPADEC board in June 2020, he was replaced by Hon. Bright Abeke the same year.

The statement reads in part; “Late Hon Ikechukwu Akozor died in September and we are already in February as we are hopeful that from now till latest first week of march a name should be announced for the replacement.

There is no vacuum in government as government is continuous action and engagements. The people needs to see the impacts of the commission most especially on the areas of infrastructure in Ndokwa East L.G.A. We humbly stand for peace and prosperity,” it said.
