Ifeanyi Okowa, Delta State Governor, has given it back to his critics, trying to assail him for appointing his own daughter as one of his aides, saying he owed no one apologies because she was qualified for the job.

Okowa said this on Tuesday at a media quarterly briefing in Asaba, Delta State capital, that the state should not lose the benefit of her contribution on account of her birth, but denied that two of his daughters were appointed.

He said: “It is not true that I have two of my daughters appointed. I have only one appointed and she is rightfully qualified. I do not have any daughter on social media. The one appointed for girl child education is rightfully qualified.

“I do not have any apologies for that because I know the quality of daughter that I have.”

Okowa, who said his position that the next governor should come from Delta Central, was his personal view, as he had no powers to pronounce anyone governor or unilaterally choose his successor, arguing that only God could decide that.
