Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa is about to swear in elected council chairmen of Ughelli North LGA and Ethiope East LGA after their victories in Tuesday’s rescheduled local government elections.
One of the chairmen is already seated at the Unity Hall in Government House, Asaba, where chieftains of the PDP and government functionaries are also seated waiting for the arrival of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
The Governor had on Monday sworn-in 23 out of the 25 council chairmen. The 23 earlier sworn in were returned as winners of the council polls in their respective localities in the election conducted last Saturday by Delta State Independent Electoral Commission (DSIEC).
Elections could not hold on Saturday in Ughelli North where DSIEC office was razed and in Ethiope East due to violence.
