Speaking at the Thanksgiving Service to mark Governor Oborevwori’s first anniversary in office, Senator Joel-Onowakpo expressed his admiration for the governor’s inclusive mindset.

He urged everyone to embrace a cross-fertilization of ideas for rapid development, emphasizing that their common goal should be the empowerment of the people and the progress of the entire region.

In conclusion, Senator Joel-Onowakpo Thomas applauded Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s approach in emulating President Tinubu’s inclusive leadership style.
