2023: Otuaro unveils campaign manifesto, promises wealth creation, jobs for youths in Delta

The Deputy Dovernor of Delta state, Barr. Kingsley Burutu Otuaro, has unveiled his campaign manifesto to the general public ahead of the 2023 governorship primary in the state.

Simply titled, “Advance Delta 2023, Build Better for Delta,” it was divided into 6 broad pillars.

In his introduction, the frontline governorship aspirant traced development from the pre-colonial era to the present day and posited that trade blossomed more during the pre colonial era than now.

In an official statement on Sunday, April 26, 2022, he promised to sow and water the economic seed of an industrialised Delta and see it manifest in a way that creates jobs and massive opportunities for everyone living, working and doing business in Delta.

He vowed to kill mediocrity and ineptitude in public and civil service, enshrine transparency and accountability, promote excellence and professionalism etc.

In Pillar 1, he devoted this to bold economic policies for an industrialised Delta; Pillar 2 is devoted to equity, peace and security for a safe and prosperous Delta; Pillar 3 is devoted to transformational reform covering health, education, housing reform, etc.

Pillar 4 covers technology for boundless opportunities; Pillar 5 covers effective and excellence driven public and civil service for good governance while Pillar 6 takes care of renewed and revived cities and communities which cover the environment, land and housing, transportation, power, energy, electricity and water.
