This is indeed a vote of confidence passed on the  Governor by an  overwhelming majority of  Deltans”.

“My dear  Colleagues,  we are now at the  last lap of the  Sixth Assembly. I urge us as always to put all hands on deck to ensure that together with the other two  Arms of Government,  we deliver on our electoral promises to the good people of our dear State. I  therefore urge chairmen of Committees who are yet to submit reports on Bills referred to their Committees to turn in such reports to enable the  House process them before the end of the Sixth Assembly”, the Speaker said.  

He   commended Members of the  House for their  unwavering support for the leadership of the  House, adding;” I  thank you most especially for your dedication to the  tasks of the Legislature.
