Hon Ighrakpata also paid glowing tributes to Rt Hon Oborevwori for the sound synergy between the State Legislature and the other arms of government, describing the cordial relationship existing between the Delta State House of Assembly and the State Executive as second to non in the country.
While urging the Speaker to remain focused in his collaborative efforts with other relevant stakeholders in the governance of Delta State, the Uvwie Representative commended the other Principal Officers and Members for their encouragement to quality leadership in the 7th Assembly.
Hon Ighrakpata who is also the Chairman, House Committee on Special Duties, assured the people of Uvwie of more robust representation in the state legislature as litigations that characterized a better part of the year under review had been put behind the people.
