Okowa decries media onslaught against his administration



Delta Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has described as “malicious and unprofessional” media onslaught aimed at discrediting his legacies.

He said since assuming office seven years ago, he has justified the confidence reposed on him by people of Delta State, vowing that such attacks would not dampen his spirit.

Delta Information Commissioner, Mr Charles Aniagwu said that Okowa had performed credibly, stressing that no amount of propaganda and malicious media onslaught would dampen his spirit or blur the vision.

He stated that the governor would continue to deliver on the mandate freely given to him by the people of the state.

Aniagwu who took a swipe on Felix Akugha’s ‘Inside The Niger Delta’ said the coordinated media onslaught against Governor Okowa through ‘Inside the Niger Delta’, a broadcast programme anchored by one Felix Akugha, was malicious and unprofessional.

Aniagwu urged Akugha to stop using his programme to settle scores, adding that Delta alone did not make up the Niger Delta.

“Yesterday in the evening, there was a continuation of a coordinated attack by somebody who happens to be my colleague and a senior one at that, when I was active in DAAR Communications.

“I am talking specifically about the person of Mr Felix Akugha. He has a programme called ‘Inside the Niger Delta’ which is aired across several performs.

“You recall that in 2015, he was the first person to be nominated to be deputy governorship candidate to Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, but due to the workings of their party that didn’t sail through. I am not aware that he has left APC to PDP.”
