Delta State governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has called for more collaboration, especially with the private sector in providing a cleaner and aesthetic environment in the state.
The governor made the call in Asaba on Friday while on a working visit to the sites of some beautification projects executed by the Asaba Capital Territory Development Agency.
The projects included sets of shops, SMART Delta Delicacies/Fruit Arena, .located at Summit Road; Nnebisi Road, NTA Junction, Federal Medical Centre Bus Stop.
The governor also unveiled the new Dennis Osadebe statue on Anwai Road.
Okowa explained that partnerships with the government would help to create better amenities for citizens.
He commended the agency and some private concerns for the structures, saying “I am aware that some of the structures were built either directly by the State Capital Territory Development Agency or in partnership with some Deltans. I am also aware that two of the structures were donated to the state government by some very supportive Deltans or people doing business in Delta.
Deltans living in our cities must do what is needed to be done to keep our state clean.
Earlier, the director-general of the agency, Mrs Onyemaechi Mrakpor, stated that the main purpose of the agency is to redesign and reconstruct structures to give the state capital a facelift and add value to the lives of Deltans.
She commended the governor for the support given to the agency and assured that more work would be executed to help in achieving the Stronger Delta mandate.
