The State Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, and former Governor, Chief James Ibori, have been honoured with the prestigious title of National Patrons of the Nigeria Supporters Club.

The duo were honoured with the title at a grand ceremony in honour of the late Ovie of Idjerhe kingdom Ododo Erhiekevwe who was the National Vice President of the Nigeria Supporters Club.

The well attended ceremony was part of a two weeks programme of activities to mark the departure of the traditional ruler who contributed in no small way to the growth and development of his kingdom.

Decorating the Governor as the National Patron, the President General of the Nigeria Supporters Club, Dr. Rafiu Ladipo, said Senator Okowa was a sports icon who had transformed the sports sector.

He said Delta State had soared high in sports development and discovery of new talents and pointing out that the state had also produced footballers who had done the nation proud at various levels.

In his remarks, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa thanked the Nigeria Supporters Club for honouring him and his predecessor, adding that the late traditional ruler was a prominent member of the club who contributed his quota to the success of their activities.

He said the late Ovie of Idjerhe kingdom was a father to all and was able to transform his kingdom during his reign, even as he consoled his family to take solace in the fact that their father lived a good and rewarding life.

In another department Governor Okowa attended the eightieth birthday anniversary of former minister of police affairs, Alaowei Broderick Bozimo in Warri.
