It seems that governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State is looking to borrow a leaf from his mentor and godfather, James Onanefe Ibori, a former governor of the state who ensured that his daughter, Erhiatake was made a member of the state house of assembly even while still behind bars in the United Kingdom.

Okowa is looking to position his daughter, Marilyn Okowa-Daramola to occupy a seat in the state house of assembly.

The decision to field Marilyn was arrived at, seeing that a certain section of Ika North East had for 20 years, occupied a seat in the House of Assembly. And so, they figure that it won’t be out of place for other sections of Ika North East to take their turn. And who better to occupy the seat than Okowa’s daughter who his foot soldiers consider eminently qualified.

His foot soldiers claim the governor is reluctant to field his daughter to occupy a seat in the house but has been forced to accede to the wishes of the people of the community and the local government area.

Like his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu who appointed his son, Babajide the Director-General of the state Performance and Project Implementation Monitoring Unit, an action the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party considers a flagrant abuse of office and an affront on the people of Ondo State, Okowa equally appointed his daughter as his Senior Special Assistant on Girl-Child Empowerment.
