Re: OSSAI OSSAI REPLIES DELTA POLITICAL PARTIES – “2019: I Am The Best Man For The Job”

IMG-20180429-WA0211

 

ABUJA/Nigeria: The member representing the Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Rt. Hon Ossai N. Ossai has reacted to the recent call by the members of Registered Political Parties Chairmen, for him to forget third term bid, calling it a hoggish show of shame anchored on political bewilderment.

In a press release, titled “2019: Rt. Hon (Dr.) Ossai N. Ossai is the Best Man For the Job”, signed by his media Aide, Amb. Chibuzo, giving detail of his achievement since his arrival at the green chambers,  the statement called for the careful examination of the RPP statement, does not reflect the view of the people of the constituency, as the group is nothing but faceless.

A careful examination of the RPP’s hasty,  judgemental, and self-serving statement on who represents the enterprising people of Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency come 2019 and the faceless groups’ hoggish labour  to upturn the universally known political menopause of Hon. Olisa Imegwu is not just shameful but has revealed how ignorant they are about Rt. Hon. Ossai’s towering accomplishments at the National Assembly and their basic lack of understanding of legislative powers, practices and procedures”

2019 Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Ossai N. Ossai is the Best man for the Job-

“The statement below credited to the faceless/non-existent ‘Registered Political Party Chairmen’- A hoggish show of shame anchored on political bewilderment”

RE: 2019: You Don’t Deserve a Third Term – Political Party Chairmen Tell Ossai

The Legislative Maestro Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Ossai Nicholas Ossai remains the best man for the job of representing and championing the cause of Ndokwa Nation for now at the Nigeria’s House of Representatives…

A careful examination of the RPP’s hasty,  judgemental, and self-serving statement on who represents the enterprising people of Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency come 2019 and the faceless groups’ hoggish labour  to upturn the universally known political menopause of Hon. Olisa Imegwu is not just shameful but has revealed how ignorant they are about Rt. Hon. Ossai’s towering accomplishments at the National Assembly and their basic lack of understanding of legislative powers, practices and procedures.

For the Benefit of our people and the general public, we won’t waste our time in this piece trying to respond to the hanging basket of lies and bogus claims peddled by the so called ‘Registered Political Party Chairmen (Chairmen without secretariat, secretaries and excos)’. However, we will rather invest the opportunity to educate and enlighten the people on Rt. Hon. Ossai’s Legislative and Representation strides, which has demystified representation in Ndokwa land and delivered pride and admiration to the people.

What has Rt. Hon. Dr. Ossai Nicholas Ossai done with his time in the National Assembly and how significant it is?

It’s common knowledge that there are three key functions of the legislature including: Law- Making; Oversight and Representation/Constituency related activities. It’s also important to note that any meaningful performance assessment of a Legislator should be measured against key indicators/targets inherent in these functions.

  1. Rt. Hon Dr. Ossai Ossai & LAW-MAKING in the National Assembly
  2. Today in the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Legislative Maestro Rt. Hon. Dr Ossai-Ossai otherwise known as the ‘Bill Process Machine’ is a leading HOR member with the highest number bills sponsored, processed, passed into law and assented to by the President.
  3. Rt. Hon. Ossai N. Ossai has over 50 legislation/bills to his credit in the 8th Assembly alone, this is unprecedented in the history of Ndokwa Nation and arguably in Nigeria.
  4. In December 2017, the President Buhari APC led government honoured Rt. Hon. Dr. Ossai Ossai with the National Merit Impact Award for sponsoring and facilitating legislation that helped Nigeria move 24 points in the Ease of Doing Business Ranking in the world. The Award was presented to Hon. Ossai Ossai by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on behalf of the President on 11th December 2017. This is significant, this is capacity, this is influence! It brought pride to Ndokwa nation and inspired young dreamers that Ndokwa nation provides leadership and has the best.
  5. Just two months later, the National Assembly Press Corp Association (HOR) honoured Rt. Hon. Dr. Ossai Ossai with the National Assembly ‘Representative of the Year Award for 2017/2018’…The Press Corp is a well known aggressive watchdog of the parliament and could be said to have better knowledge of how members perform in the floor of the house and outside. By this award, the Hon. member became the first Ndokwa son to win such award as a result of his quality representation and vibrancy in championing the cause of Ndokwa nation and Nigeria at large.

3.2.3 Empowerment for Self-reliance and Economic of Independence of Women and Youth

As a way of promoting self-reliance and economic independence in our women and the Youths, I packaged my first empowerment programme which kicked off on the 30th of November, 2015 and lasted for seven days.

o   The 120 Participants were drawn from the three LGAs in our Constituency.

o   They were trained and empowered to acquire entrepreneurial skills;

o    such as, cosmetics production, Ankara shoes and bags production, candle production, Bead making and other skills that will be of benefit to our people.

Each of the participants received intensive seven days professional training on their chosen area and was supported with seed capital and starter-packs to enable them take off. Today the beneficiaries are employers of labour. Indeed this is a testament that Rt. Hon. Dr. Ossai Ossai does not just give constituents fishes but also teaches them how to fish in a caring and sustainable way.

In April, 2016, Rt. Hon. Ossai-Ossai conducted Empowerment for Market Women and Youth attracted through Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN).

o   The empowerment was significant in many ways because, apart from touching the tomato, okra, meat, pepper sellers, etc., it boosted the local economy.

o   Today the beneficiaries are excelling in their business and some have opened new branches as a result of the legislative brilliance of Rt. Hon. Ossai Ossai in bringing representation home to the enterprising people of Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency.

3.2.5  Empowerment for Women Development and Consolidation

3.4 SPECIAL REPRESENTATION INTERVENTIONS BY RT. HON OSSAI-OSSAI

MEETINGS WITH OIL COMPANIES OPERATING IN NDOKWALAND.

Hon. Ossai Nicholas Ossai disturbed by the level of environmental pollution and degradation as a result of oil exploitation in his constituency, on his assumption of office, he immediately summoned the oil companies operating in Ndokwa nation for briefing as follows:

  1. Platform Petroleum Ltd. at the National Assembly complex, Abuja on the 14th of March 2012.
  2. Pillar oil Company Ltd. at the National Assembly complex, Abuja on the 15th of March, 2012.
  3. Sterling Global Ltd. at Kwale on the 3rd of April 2012.
  4. Agip Oil Company Ltd. at Kwale on the 3rd of April 2012.
  5. Meeting with Agip Oil Company in Port Harcourt on the 26th of July, 2012.

Other Meetings

  1. Meeting with three Delta State Representatives in the Nigeria Youth Parliament in July, 2012 at the National Assembly Complex etc.

The successful outcomes of these meetings have led to several community interventions by these companies and Hon. Ossai is still asking them for more maintaining that good is not enough that better than the best is the ultimate.

Rt. Hon. Dr. Ossai Nicholas Ossai also backed his concerns up with legislation by sponsoring the HB 117: Corporate Social Responsibility (Special Provision, etc.) Bill, 2015 in order to give legal teeth to the responsibilities of companies to their host communities. This is what bright and brilliant legislators do; they use the instrument of legislation to cure perceived ills in the society or community. Rt. Hon. Ossai N Ossai surely deserve some accolades…

3.4.1 Other Special Interventions…

Through the unwavering commitment, Legislative Brilliance and Servant leadership of Rt. Hon. #OssaiOssai, Mr. Onyeme was restored back to his job after many years of hopelessness. Indeed as John C Maxwell said- “Leadership is Influence”, Rt. Hon. Ossai has continued to leverage his office to fight for the rights of Ndokwa / Ukwuani people whether big or small.

Rt. Hon. Ossai’s quality representation as exemplified in his leadership model of “Ossaism” resonates the precious words of Harvey Firestone when he declared that the “Growth and development of people is the highest calling of Leadership”.

3.4.2  DISTRIBUTION OF RELIEF MATERIALS TO SEVERAL COMMUNITIES/PERSONS IN NDOKWA LAND AFFECTED BY NATURAL DISASTER.

On Saturday the 15th March, 2014, properties of several communities/persons in Ndokwa land were devastated by thunder storm that left many houses completely destroyed. Some of the affected communities are Asaba Ase, Abala-Uno, Akarri, Utagba-Ogbe, Ogume, Emu, Onicha-Ukwuani, Etua Etiti, Ogo-Ikilibi, Abbi, Obiaruku, Ebedei, Umukwata, Amai, Akoku, Umuaja, Owa-Abbi, Ezonium etc.

In a bid to cushion the effect of the damage on his people caused by the thunderstorm, Hon. Ossai N Ossai in his usual characteristic manner and humanitarian disposition moved a motion at the floor of the House of Representatives to the effect that he succeeded in convincing his fellow Honourable Members on the need for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to as a matter of urgency, provide relief materials to the affected communities/persons, which is in accordance with section 6(j) of NEMA Act. The motion was passed and resolutions taken by the House directing NEMA to provide relief materials to the affected Communities/persons.

Thereafter NEMA provided the underlisted relief materials for distribution to the affected   communities/persons in Ndokwa land as follows:

  • 30 bags of roofing nails
  • 35 cartons of bath soap

On the 2nd of June 2014, the above mentioned relief materials were distributed simultaneously to the several affected communities/persons at the Council Secretariats in the three Local Government Areas of Ndokwa land with the assistance of NEMA officials, Senior Local Government Council staff and representatives of the office of Hon. Ossai.

The communities/persons from each of the three LGAs that benefited in the relief materials after a thorough scrutiny are as follows:-

One is compelled to question what then is dividends of democracy if not the things that Rt. Hon. Ossai-Ossai that has excelled in? and #VowedToDoMore!

3.4.2  EMPLOYMENT

Hon. Ossai N. Ossai has facilitated the employment of tens of hundreds of Ndokwa indigenes in most Federal Government Ministries, Parastatals, Agencies, Federal Civil Service and the Private sectors. Rt. Hon. Dr. Ossai-Ossai is the originator of open door policy, almost all constituents has access to him, visits his offices at liberty and receive maximum attention for their concerns by himself and his team of professional staff. Rt. Hon. Ossai-Ossai has recommended thousands of Ndokwa sons and daughters for jobs in several places… Testimonies abound about Hon. Ossai Ossai humanity, humility and penchant for service to common man.

3.5 Rt. Hon. Ossai -A Teacher of Legislative Practice and Procedure

Rt. Honourable Ossai is a renowned teacher of Legislative Practice, Procedure and operations who helps in building and strengthening capacities of parliaments in West African countries and other African Countries. In recent times, Rt. Hon. Ossai has facilitated capacity building programmes for Members of Ugandan Parliaments; Members of Sudan Parliaments amongst others.

Rt. Hon. Ossai Ossai Holds a Masters’ Degree in Legislative and Democratic Practice… He is arguably the first Ndokwa Son in that category.

3.5      2019 and why Ndokwa Nation Earnestly Need Rt. Hon. Ossai N Ossai in the House of Representatives…

The structure of Nigeria’s National Assembly is such that ranking and seniority is primed. Today Rt. Hon. Ossai N Ossai is a ranking member in the House of Representatives and as a result, he is in a position and favoured  to become the Speaker of the House in the 9th Assembly (As some of his colleagues are already rooting for him to become the speaker) and/or a principal officer in the House.

Ndokwa Nation understands that as presiding or principal officer Rt. Hon. Ossai -Ossai will be in a position to attract projects in billions of Naira unlike the current tens of millions of Naira projects; this is because ranking members of the parliament are given preference before the green horns.

Ndokwa Nations knows that despite Rt. Hon. Ossai-Ossai serving in the Committee of Ethics and privileges (internal committee of the house) that doesn’t give him natural leverage to influence things in government ministries and agencies; Hon. Ossai through his doggedness, legislative brilliance and lobbying skills has continued to surprise detractors to attract and execute huge and massive projects as itemised above with the IPP step-down secured by Hon. Ossai being the giant one.

Ndokwa Nation knows that Rt. Hon. Ossai has made them proud through his legislative vibrancy and unmatched ability to bring representation home and that Hon. Ossai-Ossai has built contacts across National front and now is the time for him to deploy those contacts in attracting more massive projects to Ndokwa land…therefore, Hon. Ossai should be returned to the House of Representatives…

Ndokwa Nation knows that the illegal six months Hon. Olisa Imegwu spent at the National Assembly was a disaster that shouldn’t repeat itself again. They understand that in the eye of the law, Hon. Imegwu was never in the House of Representatives. May be those asking him go back are ignorant of the fact that he was never there because you can’t convert illegality to become legality; that was why God intervened and gave Ndokwa Land a humble and caring leader in the person of Rt. Hon. Ossai-Ossai.

Ndokwa Nation understands that the reason Hon. Leo and Mutu are attracting huge projects is because they are ranked and have gone to the House 3 to 4 times respectively…Ndokwa Nation knows their case can’t be  different at this crucial time; they know that it’s time to make a developmental decision to return Hon. Ossai-Ossai back to the house.

Should we not return a man who has excelled in all front? Should we not return a man who has the chances of given Ndokwa Nation opportunity to produce Nigeria’s Speaker of House of Representatives come June 2019?

Should we not return a man who is positioned to help our sons and daughters get the right jobs/promotions in sensitive offices in our land?

Should we not return a man who is positioned to attract projects in billions (and leave the one who may barely have access to few millions)?

Should we not return a man who has finished plans and lobbied  his colleagues to add enough funds in the coming budget to expedite work on the IPP step-down?

Should we not return a man who has sponsored over 50 bills and most of them already signed into law by the President?

Should we not return a man who has moved over 30 motions to address specific community issues in Ndokwa Land?

Should we not return a man who has concluded plans for budgetary provision for the construction of Okpai-Kwale-Uchi and Abala Oshimili Road? (check the National budget ref: ERGP12104422)

Should we not return a man who attracted the reconstruction of Utagbe-Ogbe Major Road through FERMA?

Should we not return a man who the APC Presidency honored with the National Merit Impact Award being a PDP Law-maker?

Should we not return the first Ndokwa son to be honoured with the Representative of Year award by National Assembly Press Corps (HOR)?

Should we not return the strong voice of Ndokwa Nation at the National Assembly?

Should we not return the Pride of Ndokwa Land in the National Assembly?

Should we not return a man who has given the education of our children priority through his various educational material supports and school intervention projects?

Should we not return a man who has boldly helped to revamp the GDP of Ndokwa Nation through his numerous empowerment projects?

Should we not return a man who has empowered, developed and built the capacities of our women and men and helped them to start up and expand their businesses?

Should we not return a man has concluded plans to soon train over 400 farmers across the constituency in plantain farming with a seed capital to start?

Should we not return a man who built foundation in National Politics that wasn’t there before for the benefit of Ndokwa Nation?

Should we not return a leader with humility, a leader that cares for his people and a leader with vision?

Should Ndokwa Nation allow some who us just enrolling to be a student claim that he is better than the teacher? Your answer is as good as mine!

Ndokwa Nation should! we should return the Legislative Maestro and Senior Advocate of Masses (SAM)- Rt. Hon. Ossai Nicholas Ossai-  to Nigeria’s House of Representatives come 2019 because he has #VowedToDoMore!

May God bless you our capacity leader!
