Deputy Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Friday Ossai Osanebi, has urged political appointees to convey the dividends of the prosperity agenda of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to those at the grassroots.
Osanebi gave the charge in Asaba when he received aides, appointees and support staff from his constituency.
He urged them to see their appointment as a form of empowerment and as such, help others no matter how small, adding that in so doing, they are transmitting welfare packages of the prosperity government of Senator Okowa to those at the grassroots.
He noted that he alone cannot meet the social cum economic needs of the people, but as much as possible, appointees should imbibe the culture of lending a helping hand to others irrespective of the amount, quantity or quality of materials given.
“Let those in your wards feel the impact of prosperity. I commend the unity that exists among the staff. Delta State is passing through a tunnel now and there is a great light at the end, so let us do our best with the hope of a better tomorrow.”
He harped on oneness and unity of purpose and urged aides not to be distracted. He also encouraged them to put the interest of the people first.
Earlier, a Senior Special Assistant to the Deputy Speaker, Chief Ugo Asibelua, told the lawmaker that they came to thank him for his magnanimity and kindness towards them, lauding him for his efforts and effective representation of Ndokwa East people.
