Okowa Urges Appropriate Channels For Grievances


by Nosa Eresoyen, Asaba
As the issue of hate speeches continue to re-echo in Nigeria, Delta State governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has called for the use of appropriate legal channels for the people to address their grievances.
Governor Okowa made the call yesterday when Hon Mathias Eto, commissioner, Public Complaints Commission, led members of the commission to pay a courtesy call on the governor in Asaba.
According to the governor, “There is no doubt that because of the recession, people are easily getting angry but, it is time for us as a people to realise that there are several constitutional avenues for us to lay our complaints. “People should try to have more reasonable means to engage the
Nigerian state peacefully, rather than engage in hate speeches that generates tension,” he said, adding, “when these types of speeches are  heard outside the shores of the country, it will discourage foreign direct investments and make local investors to be cautious which will  further endanger our fragile economy.”
The governor reiterated his resolve, “to achieve law and order in the society, there must be equity and fairness in our activities because, any society that cannot ensure law and order will be in anarchy.”
