The Delta State Governor, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has appointed Chief (Mrs.) Odet Emo JP, Chairman, Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC, Delta State, as a Senior Special Assistant on Women Development in his cabinet.
The appointment which takes immediate effect, has received accolades from Deltans who consider it as a well deserved appointment, while a few have said this is a big loss to the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state, as Chief Emo is known to be a staunch supporter of Great Ovedje Ogboru, a frontline governorship aspirant in the opposition party in the state.
Speaking to Oasis Magazine during a phone conversation, she described the appointment as an opportunity to contribute her quota to the betterment of women in the state.
She said: “It came as a big surprise to me. It is a well deserved appointment. That the Governor took notice of what I have been doing in the state is exciting.”
She added: “My vision now is to come up with strategies that would mobilise the women and make them self-employed. Remember, I am a caterer and into many businesses. I would use my experience to help many women in the state become self-reliant.
“The women need to know how to manage their little resources.”
