Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, (DSHA), Hon Dennis Guwor and former minister of State for Education, Barr Jennet Gbagi have disagreed on the state of developments in the state.

While the speaker encouraged residents to keep hope alive, that the MORE agenda of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s administration will further consolidate on the gains of the past administration and usher in more and greater development across the nook and crannies of the state, Gbagi disagreed, saying the state remains a work-in-progress despite at 32 years of its creation.

Speaking on the 32nd anniversary of the creation of Delta State by General Ibrahim Babangida led military administration in 1991, the speaker assured of the commitment of the state legislature to encourage policies and programmes that would further promote peace, unity, prosperity and good governance in the state.

However, Gbagi said that Delta at 32 years of existence has gone backwards, saying that there was nothing to celebrate.

“It is no joke that we all had a child that is 32 years old but unfortunately that while Deltans as a people have nothing to celebrate, the structure of Delta State has remain largely the same as left for us by our colonial masters.

“While tones of money had come, passing the name Delta State, it does not reflect on the ground giving all we have received as a people. It is unfortunate that what is before us today, make a laughable stock in the committee of states in Nigeria and elsewhere in the globe.

“It is not one that we want to play cosmetic lip service to. The speed in which we are running into self-extinction calls for serious concern. While I mourn this day as Delta attain 32 years of nothing to show for it, it is about time fellow Deltans should join hands with me in my quest to liberate this State from deceit, from theft, from lack of development, unproductiveness” the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the March 18th election stated.
