Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has commended members of the Delta State House of Assembly for the passage of the Delta State Oil Producing Area Development Commission (DESOPADEC) Bill.

Addressing journalists in Warri, Delta State, yesterday, Onuesoke described DESOPADEC as a ‘sick person’ who required surgery, adding that the amended DESOPADEC Bill would provide the cure for the ailment.

He explained that the amended Bill was lean enough and would be less expensive to maintain, adding that the chairman and other board members, being part time, may be entitled to sitting allowances only, and therefore more cost effective, if well monitored.

“The commissioners are like watch dogs committed to ensuring that projects approved for their respective constituencies are carried out. With the pluralistic nature of the state, the Governor, most likely, would ensure that appointments cut across the ethnic divides in the state and that all interests are served and protected”, Onuesoke stressed, adding that the retention of rotation of offices in the commission was an indication that everyone would come out of this new arrangement smiling.

He praised Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for initiating the Bill which has since been passed into law by the House of Assembly. Onuesoke noted that those initially oppose to the amendment of the Bill were not doing it for the interest of oil bearing communities, but for their private agenda, urging Deltans to support the good works of Okowa who mean well for oil bearing communities.
