Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, has congratulated renowned medical practitioner, politician and astute administrator, Dr Festus Goziem Okubor, as he clocks 63 years on October 12.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sir Festus Ahon, in Asaba, the governor described Okubor, who is National President, Ute-Okpu Development Union (UDU), as a political tactician and administrator, who had contributed immensely to the public service in the state.
He particularly commended Okubor for his role in stabilising the polity as a man with the gift of the gab and expressed the hope that Okubor would continue to help mentor the young generation of youths in politics and business.
