Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa,
reportedly slumped over last Wednesday at the government house in Asaba, a Sahara Reporters report says.
The report said a government house
source, who pleaded for anonymity explained that Mr. Okowa was billed to attend the World Teachers Day
celebration at the cenotaph last Wednesday.
However, after all preparations were put in place, Mr. Okowa reportedly slumped over at his office preventing his attendance.
The source added that immediately the governor was whisked away from the office to an undisclosed place for medical attention and his deputy, Kingsley Otuaro, was called to
represent him at the event.
“I can tell you categorically that since
that Wednesday till today the governor has not attended any public function. If you watch well, all the public functions, it’s the deputy that is representing him.
Though, we can’t tell why he slumped and the illness he is suffering from. “Before becoming the state governor, he has been battling with unknown health challenges.
