Congratulations your Excellency, it is a great job and I commission it to the glory of God.”
The President who observed that the administration of Governor Uduaghan has greatly transformed the state and improved the lives of Deltans noted that the State was one of best run by a PDP government and that would be used as reference point for the achievements of the PDP-led administration in the country.
“Delta State is among the PDP states that the transformation agenda of my administration has touched and Governor Uduaghan whole heartedly has keyed into this transformation agenda, as you can see Delta State is one of the fastest growing state in this nation”, Dr Jonathan said, stressing: “This mighty and beautiful edifice we are commissioning today shows the massive transformation going on in the state.”
