THE traditional ruler of Uvwie Kingdom, HRM Dr. Emmanuel Ekemejewa Sideso, the Abe 1, Ovie of Uvwie Kingdom, the Chairman of Uvwie Local Government, Hon. Ramson Tega Onoyake and some students have lauded Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for the establishment of Effurun Modern Technical College, Effurun Uvwie lo­cal government area.

The commendation was contained in their separate speeches during the com­missioning of the techni­cal college in Effurun, on Tuesday.

“We are sincerely grate­ful to be one of the benefi­ciaries of the nine modern technical colleges awarded by you (Governor Okowa) in the first phase of revi­talising technical colleges in the state.

“We are aware that Ef­furun Modern Technical College was the last to be awarded among the nine colleges, but like the bibli­cal saying: The last shall become the first”, Abe 1 stated.

On his part, the Chair­man of Uvwie Local Gov­ernment, Hon Ramson Tega Onoyake, in his ad­dress, stated that: “I want to sincerely express our profound gratitude for counting Uvwie local gov­ernment area worthy to have this modern technical school situate here.

“You said it and you did accordingly. Indeed you are the ‘ Ekwume ‘ of Delta State”, Onoyake added.

Some students of the technical college, includ­ing Miss Joy Lolo-West, spoke in the same vein, as they lauded the gov­ernor and assured that they will make good use of the school for their future benefits.

The Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, in his key note address, during the inauguration of the techni­cal college, stated, among others that he was grateful to the Uvwie monarch for the provision of land for the building of the college.

He also lauded the Uvwie people for providing an en­abling environment for the building of the technical college. Governor Okowa, however, stressed the need for the expansion of the college. To this end, he assured that he will hand over the school expansion need to the next governor of Delta State, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, in his handing over note.

High point of the event was the cutting of the tape to commission the Model Technical College, Effurun by the Uvwie monarch. The Traditional ruler was as­sisted by Governor Okowa , Deputy Governor Kingsley Otuaro and other dignitar­ies.

The Uvwie monarch, in a media interaction with news men, expressed de­light that Governor Okowa started and completed the project in record time.

He charged manage­ment, staff and students to make good use of the technical college and to also maintain it.

The Secretary of Uvwie Council of Chiefs, Dr. (Chief) Samuel Eshanake, and a Palace Chief of the Ovie of Uvwie, Chief Sun­day Popo, in a separate media chats with news­men, also hailed Governor Okowa for his patronage of Uvwie local government area.
