Enhanced Peace and Security

Peace and security create the right atmosphere for social and economic life. The rest development agenda cannot materialize without deliberate and sustained prevalence of peace and security. Therefore, I will deploy all necessary resources, energies, collaboration, partnership, stakeholder engagement, consultation, and dialogue in ensuring that Delta State remains peaceful and secure for its citizens, residents and local as well as foreign investors. I will adopt a governance approach hinged on equity, fairness, and inclusiveness.

Environmental Sustainability

Environmental development and sustainability is an important aspect of my development agenda. By circumstances of its location characteristics, Delta State is prone to several environmental risks, particularly coastal fl ooding, rainwater fl ooding, waterlogging, overfl owing of rivers and others. If not mitigated and tackled, these environmental threats can negatively impact economic activities and livelihoods of people. The policy objectives are to prevent and control environmental risks and related threats, remedy degradation from oil pollution and mining, improve waste management for better public health and environmental sanitation in urban and rural areas and make waste management more effi cient, effective and sustainable.
