Delta Govt Presents Land Documents To Air Force


Delta state Governor, Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, has handed the Certificate of Occupancy of 66.6 hectares of land over to the Air Force.

He did the handover on Wednesday when the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Hassan Abubakar, paid a courtesy visit to the governor in Asaba; it was to collaborate with the Nigerian Airforce.

“We are all aware that it was initially granted by the previous administration, but there was no C of O. It was supposed to be an operational base then. We know the project is still there; we will also assist in constructing roads leading to the 66.6 hectares of land.

“The gesture is in line with our M.O.R.E agenda; to enhance peace and security in the state because that’s the only way we can get development. I want to tell you that because of the unfortunate incident in Okuama 17, we were already enjoying peace in Delta State.

“We condemn the unfortunate incident in totality and know that the Okuama 17 will not go in vain. We are also doing our best; we have already set up an IDP camp for innocent citizens.

“I’d like to assure you that, regarding your request for land for your housing scheme, we will make sure that you get the land as soon as possible. Now that you have the spirit to build a housing scheme for your personnel, we must prepare the land immediately.

“Again, we assure you that we will continue to partner with the Nigerian Air Force and other security agencies in Delta State to continue to enjoy peace because that’s the only way sustainable development can be achieved in this state,” the Governor stated.

Abubakar thanked the Governor for the support the Delta state government has provided to the Air Force over the years and for the robust execution of his M.O.R.E agenda in the state.

He also hailed Governor Oborevwori for giving the Air Force land to fully entrench itself in the state.
