“The entertainment industry is a very huge one. The GDP of Hollywood which is a subsector of the American entertainment industry is higher than that of Nigeria, an oil producing country. The revenue from Nigeria’s Nollywood in one of my lectures, I said may soon surpass Nigeria’s oil revenue. Fossil fuel may soon get finished but the entertainment industry remains. The entertainment industry will be forever because man cannot live without entertainment, we all yearn for entertainment. My advice to talented young Nigerians is for them to delve into the entertainment industry”.

“I’m indeed happy and satisfied with the mature and efficient manner our dear and result oriented Governor, Senator Dr Ifeanyi Okowa handled the EndSARS protests in Delta State. Governor Okowa was not only able to nip the protests in the bud but, he also responded very quickly. He did not allow the protests to escalate before he intervened. This showed that he is a very good, intelligent, responsible and charismatic leader who is always out to protect the interest and safety of his people. I am not only proud of Governor Okowa,I am also commending him for the good work.”

“It is historic, because we are here to witness the commissioning of a fairly Modern Market, the first of its kind in the community built in collaboration with the shop owners under a Build Operate and Transfer arrangement. It is important to emphasize here that the council did not put a dine in achieving what we are seeing today. The idea of this market came about as a result of the COVID19 experience in the local government area. Indeed, COVID19 has its own positive sides as you can see.
This market consists of 315 lock up shops and 2,000 open shops with 2 slaughter slabs and toilet facilities. I use this opportunity to passionately appeal to all users of this market to cooperate with one another and maintain a peaceful atmosphere as they go about their respective businesses and diligently abide by the terms and conditions in their acceptance letter allotment.
I wish to use this singular opportunity to express my appreciation to the Governor, His Excellency, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for all he has been doing for the Local Government and to thank His Royal Majesty, the Dein of Agbor Kingdom for his continual support to my administration and ensuring that the construction of this market is successful”.
—Hon (Barr) Victor Okoh, executive Chairman, Ika South Local Government Council.
