Good Governance, Accountability, Even Development, My Priority- Ochei
BEVERLY HILLS, October 02, (THEWILL) - A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship aspirant and former Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. (Engr.) Victor Ochei says the essence of his gubernatorial ambition is to provide good governance, accountability, unity and peace, job creation, and even development irrespective of tribe, gender or religion, come 2015.
This was disclosed while addressing the Delta state Leader and Elders Forum in Warri recently, during a consultative session, where he further opined that these agenda will be the cornerstone of viable development with the ultimate aim of making the state one that all will be proud of.
The Speaker emeritus also hinted that he desires a state devoid of ethnicity as a divisive force but rather the diversity should be the driving force in strengthening the bond of brotherhood amongst Deltans.
According to him, this dream can be actualised through the forum which is a formidable voice that can immensely accentuate the message of hope which the group had always advocated for Delta state.
He also pledged to ensure participatory governance, based on the core principles of accountability and synergising development programmes across the state whereby the abundant human and material resources are properly harnessed.
In his response, Professor Okobia expressed delight at the prospects of having a governorship aspirant in the mould of Ochei, whose lofty achievements as the immediate past speaker of the Delta state Legislature will enhance governance in the state, adding that 'we hope that our hopes will be hopeful.'
