Oparanya, who is also the ODM Deputy Party Leader, was hailed for being a gracious host for the ongoing conference.

The event has brought together devolution stakeholders including the Council of Governors, Senators, MCAs, and the National Government.

With regard to exemplary performance in the devolved units of governors, President Kenyatta praised Governor's Roba's work in the health sector that has since child mortality rates in Mandera drop by more fifty percent.
