Gov. Okowa mulls executive bill to curb hooliganism
Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa said he has forwarded an executive bill to the State House of Assembly (DTHA) that is expected to arrest hooliganism and other social vices in the State.
The Governor said his administration will not fail to jail any youth that is sabotaging his effort to make the state an investment destination.
The Governor, who said the State was gradually becoming an investors’ hub, threatened to use the powers vested in him to deal decisively with anyone found guilty as charged.
He said nobody, no matter highly placed in the society, would be spared, if found to be scaring away investors from the state, while maintaining that the bill would be followed to the letter as soon as it passed into law.
“We are not going to tolerate any youth chasing investors away. We have sent a bill on that to the House to deal with it.
“As soon as the bill sails through, I will not hesitate to send anybody to jail because no investor will come and invest in a hostile environment,” Okowa said.
Also, when the leadership of the National Association of Delta State Students (NADESSTU), led by its President, Samson Agolo, visited him in Asaba, the Governor decried the effects of secret cults on Nigerian youths and called on students’ union bodies to be involved in the fight against vices, such as cultism in Nigerian institutions.
