Emmanuel Egbabor, chairman, Isoko North local government area, Delta state, has assured the people of the area of greater peace and development in the 2020 fiscal year.

The council boss who gave the assurance in his new year message felicitated with the good people of the local government on the occasion of the crossover to the year 2020.

While thanking God for the peace, security and development of Isoko North in the last 5 years on the saddle, Egbabor, commended the good and loving people of area for their prayers and support which he said had contributed immensely to the success of his administration since inception.

The council chairman who thanked the state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, for coming to their rescue during the financial challenges to pay council workers salary, noted that “Despite the financial challenges we had in payment of workers salary, we thank our dear Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa for coming to our aid which made it possible for us to off-set backlog of salaries owed our workers.

“On behalf of my family, management, staff and the entire good people of Isoko North Local Government, I glorify God for successfully bringing us to this new year 2020, our year of ‘greater peace and development.

“First let me appreciate the people of Isoko North for the peace and cooperation in the year 2019 and over the years. As a government we shall continue to do what is right within the law.

“I also appreciate all our political and religious leaders, traditional rulers, party faithful, the leader and members of the Isoko North Legislative Arm, members of the Isoko North Executive Council, Management and staff for their support over the years even as we still appeal for more support.

“As 2020 beckons, by God’s grace we will be better off than last year, even as we will not relent on our promises to deliver quality services to the good people of Isoko North. It is our dream to see a more united and peaceful Isoko North, irrespective of party, religion or other considerations.

“As a government, we are determined to implement programmes and policies that will continue to touch the lives of the people and part of the strategy is to complete all projects that we have started as we enter the last lap of our current and final term in office.

“It is our determination to leave Isoko North as the most peaceful Local Government in the state and as such we will continue to sue for peace, cooperation and harmony among the people and communities of Isoko North for without peace and security there can’t be any meaningful development.

“I urge the good people of Isoko North to work together to achieve peace and security in our local government as the security agencies alone cannot do it. I urge our people to report all suspicious criminal activities to security agencies in a bid to rid the local government off criminals.

“While I will agree that we had a good year in 2019, It is our hope that we shall have a better year 2020 filled with opportunities for the good of our people. We will continue to partner with the security agencies to sustain peace and security that we have enjoyed in the year 2019.

“As part of our sustainable development strategy, we would ensure that our environment is kept clean by taking seriously the issues of environmental sanitation, health and well-being of the people thereby creating a conducive and enabling environment for private investors to operate.

The chairman congratulated and wished all the good people of the local government council a fulfilled and glorious new year.
