Members of the Delta State caucus of the House of Representatives have expressed their love and concern for the Governor of Delta State, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, his Wife and daughter for testing positive for the virus.
In a get-well-quick message signed by the Minority Leader of the House of Reps, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, Chairman of Delta House of Representatives caucus, Rt. Hon. Victor Nwaokolo, Rt Hon Nicholas Mutu, Rt Hon Leonard Ogor, Hon. Nicholas Ossai, Hon Julius Pondi, Hon Efe Afe, Hon Ben Igbakpa, Hon Thomas Ereyitomi and Hon Francis Waive, the caucus assured the governor and his family members of their support and prayers.
They said they were solidly behind them at this critical time.
The caucus urged them to be strong and said that being positive for COVID-19 was not, by any way, a death sentence.
“Your Excellency, we the members of the Delta State House of Reps caucus wish you, your dear wife and members of your family well. It is our sincere prayer that you all will come out of this in good health to the glory of the Lord God Almighty.
“COVID-19, like you have told Deltans, is not a death sentence in any way and it is our firm believe that in no distant time, you and your family will all come out stronger,” the Caucus said.
While commending the Governor for his sincerity, transparency and proactive management of the pandemic in the State, the Caucus called on residents of the State to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 preventive measures put in place by the NCDC, Federal and State Ministries of Health.
They further noted that the only way to flatten the COVID-19 curve in the State and the Country as a whole was by way of obedience to the protocols on the pandemic as directed by the various health authorities.
