"I owe no one apology for appointing my daughter as aide," says Okowa.
Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, on Tuesday broke the silence on the outrage over the appointment of one of his daughters as an aide.
The governor, while addressing the issue, said that he has no apologies for giving his daughter the plum job.
“It is not true that I have two of my daughters appointed. I have only one appointed and she is rightfully qualified.
“I do not have any daughter on social media. The one appointed for girl child education is rightfully qualified.
“I do not have any apologies for that because I know the quality of daughter that I have,” he stated.
Also speaking on who would succeed him in 2023, Okowa noted that who becomes the next governor after him will be determined by God.
“I am not God. I don’t make a governor. Nobody makes a governor. It is only God that can make one.
“The important thing is we want to ensure there is unity and equity and we will continue to work towards achieving a situation that keeps us united as Deltans realizing that working together makes us stronger as a people,” he stated.
