It’s exactly one year today, that the Rt. Hon. Friday Ossai Osanebi was unanimously reelected by the Ndokwa East people, to represent them in the Delta State House of Asembly, Asaba for the second time, as his one good term deserved another.
Until April 11, 2015, the generality of Ndokwa East had wanted a consolidation of the good and people oriented representation of Hon. Friday Osanebi, a first timer, that stunned every body with his new order of representation- a paradigm shift from the rather oligarchy and plutocratic form of government that was the case of the Ndokwa East people, to a system of leadership that epitomized democracy via a youthful, humble, God fearing personality and egalitarian who feels the impulse of the people. He came out with a campaign slogan: ” if I win you win”; and immediately, the project was greeted with passion and enthusiasm and voted him massively the second time.
Like, the dictum – ” he’s tested and trusted”, the massive vote for PDP from Ndokwa East in the last general election, was triggered by the obvious testimonial of Rt. Hon. Friday Osanebi whose first time leadership was characterized with human capital empowerment, palpable dividends of democracy, social empowerment, women empowerment, youth empowerment , scholarships and vibrant representation in the State House of Assembly.
Before April 11, 2015, the Friday Osanebi Campaign team with her principal, went round all the communities in Ndokwa East, with the campaign manifesto of hope, advancement and prosperity. He made promises irrespective of economic challenges ravaging the country. He hasn’t held this as a yardstick not to fulfill his promises to his people. Just a year into his second return to the house of assembly, he has fulfilled almost all his campaign promises and he has not relented in raising the bar, each passing day.
From ‘If I win you win’; it’s now, “If I enjoy, you enjoy”, in Ndokwa East. Within a year, Rt. Hon. Friday Osanebi, has reasonably changed the game and has raised the standard, that will be difficult for any house member or politician within and around Ndokwa nation to beat.
He started with harmonizing the leadership of Ndokwa nation, synchronizing all divides and views in the trado-political leadership of Ndokwa East and Ndokwa nation in general. Because of his passion for youth empowerment and positive engagement, Osanebi has instituted a youth empowerment cum involvement strategy, which gives every youth a sense of belonging. Osanebi has been able to harmonize Ndokwa youths, irrespective of their divergent opinions and views about life and government.
Within a year, the Empowerment Master has facilitated the appointment of young men and women into positions of influence and affluence, within and outside the political terrain of Delta State.
Because of his passion for human capital development, he has institutionalized a process of ensuring academic excellence in order to raise Giants in various strata of human life, through his foundation, The Friday Osanebi Foundation (FOF), which gave out over N10 million to students of Anioma origin just recently in Asaba. Amongst other things, the intent and purpose of this noble gesture was to empower the students economically in order to pay their fees, get books and be comfortable while studying. Besides this, the Youngest Deputy Speaker in Nigeria has said, that he is using this platform to ensure academic excellence of his people, because renewal and continual enlistment in the scholarship scheme was predicated on the student’s return of yearly academic report of not less than an upper credit.
In addendum and in a bit to consolidate on the educational wellbeing of Ndokwa East, Osanebi in addition to the schools he built in the ten wards of Ndokwa East in his first missionary journey to Delta State House of Assembly; within a year – from April 11, 2015 to April 11, 2016, Osanebi has completed another set of six class room blocks in six wards of Ndokwa East.
Different Contracting firms are already in some of our roads, and just last week, the Delta State Executive Council approved the reconstruction and widening of the Beneku road in Ndokwa East.
Osanebi has demonstrated capacity within a year and has raised the standard for his serving and yet to be colleagues in the State House of Assembly.
In all of these, what does he have to say ? ” we thank God who has taken us thus far” . Very simple and straight to the point you would say, but Osanebi attributes all he has recorded and all he’s got, to God.
