In a statement made available to newsmen in Oghara, Ethiope West Local Government Area of the State, Ofa identified the physical presence of the governor at the final match of the Chief James Ibori Under-19 competition and the ongoing infrastructural project in the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba as some of the indications that Okowa was a lover of sports and youth.
"Governor Okowa has consistently established his interest in youth and sports development. The ongoing massive infrastructural project at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in preparation for the 2018 African Athletics Competition holding in Asaba clearly shows his readiness to consolidate on the achievement of Delta State in the sporting world".

Ofa, an ardent lover of sports, also hailed the Sports and Youths Development Academy (SYDA) for successfully organizing the maiden edition of the Chief James Ibori Under-19 Football Competition which was won by the Oghara Team.
He noted that the successful completion of the competition on March 31st showed that the leadership of the SYDA could be trusted with great responsibilities in the sporting world.
According to the former DESOPADEC commissioners, the competition was a right step at immortalizing the name of former Governor James Ibori who, he said, made frantic efforts to develop all sectors of the oil rich state and place it on the path of sustainable growth.
The statement read in part: “Everyone who followed up with the activities of the competition would admit that it had the desideratum of conviviality, peace and friendship which are some of the major forces that have bound us together as a state. “No doubt, the competition was one of the many efforts at casting the good name of Chief James Ibori on the beautiful.ent from Mobile
