LAGOS MARCH 7TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan has taken the message of Delta Beyond Oil to the United States to solicit the support of foreign partners and institutions for the initiative.
Scheduled to speak at the Roosevelt Public Policy Institute in New York on the topic,“Perspectives on Sustainable Development in Delta State: Delta Beyond Oil” on the 7th of March, 2014, Governor Uduaghan has remained a strong advocate for the diversification of the State’s economy as being crucial for the State’s sustainable development.

Earlier, the Governor has been a guest to the United States Department of State and the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), both in Washington,DC., USA, where he articulated the vision of the current administration of the State for a Delta beyond Oil.

Speaking about the event scheduled for March 7 at the Roosevelt Public Policy Institute in New York, the Senior Adviser (Foreign Relations) to the Governor, Hon. Oma Djebah, stated that “it is very reassuring to learn that foreign institutions like the prestigious Roosevelt Centre are offering their platforms to help resonate the Delta beyond Oil message as canvassed by His Excellency, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan. The support of some of our foreign friends and partners hasrekindled our hope for a sustainable future in Delta State, and this demonstrates a growing global endorsement for Governor Uduaghan’s vision for a Delta beyond Oil.”
