The Archbishop of the Bendel Province/Bishop Anglican Diocese of Ughelli, the Most Rev. Cyril. O. Odutemu Ph.D, JP has urged the Delta State Governor-elect, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori not to spend his time halfway with sychophants.

The cleric handed down the charge during a homily he delivered as part of activities marking the rite of passage of the Ohworode of Olomu Kingdom, HRM.(Dr) Richard Layeguen Ogbon Ogoni-Oghoro I JP.

The event was held at Ogoni-Olomu Community in Ughelli South Local Government Area.

According to Archbishop Odutemu, "Okowa is already concluding his administration. Do not spend your time halfway with sychophants.

"As you begin your tenure under God, know that there is time for everything. I do not see you spending four years in office. I see you spending eight years in office."

Archbishop Odutemu urged the Governor-elect to do everything within his time to attract development to Delta State.

"If you ask the man you are going to succeed, he will tell you that there are some things he wanted to do that he could not finish."

Archbishop Odutemu who earlier paid tribute to the departed Ohworode of Olomu saying, "Papa is a lover of the church. A true child of God who came, who saw and conquered."
