WHY I WANT TO REPRESENT OTUKPO/ OHIMINI AT THE FEDERAL HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES COME 2019_ Dr Wilson Eche Ocheje
Good Morning Great People of Otukpo/Ohimini and Idoma at Large. It is no longer news that I Dr Wilson Eche Ocheje is seeking to Represent my people from Otukpo/Ohimini at the National Assembly Abuja as a member House of Representative. My desire to serve stems from my passion for youth empowerment and human capacity developments in terms of Education, Health, skills acquisition and general well being. I believe that every individual no matter the background is entitled to a good life and as such basic amenities and opportunities like good health care systems in the rural areas, well equipped schools, water, schoorlaships for Students, grants for small scale business men and women, start up grants for Widows, cottage industries like palm sandals making companies, plastic and Nylon making companies, digital printing companies, cassava processing companies and a host of others.
I have come to share with you, a social contract of constructive representation, one that is anchored on loyalty, responsibility, credibility and a vibrant Intelligent Quotient (IQ) that will network wth the best brians amongst our ever vibrant Otukpo/Ohimini Youths and give result oriented outputs. Let me reiterate that whereas, there are two fundamental duties of a typical Nigerian legislator, namely – Lawmaking; and oversight functions respectively. I will constructively engage agencies like the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Rapid Response Agency, World Bank, Africa Development Bank, Bank of Agriculture, Nigeria Institute for Oil Palm Research, etc to build and maintain superlative Primary and Secondary Health Care facilities;durable roads;the red-roof revolutions schools;proper skill acquisition centers;modernized markets; healthy arbarteurs; dignified women empowerment programs; Widows support initiatives, provision of interest-free loans for our market women and good Agricultural schemes for farmers.
On legislative duties, I will make sure I sponsor bills that will aim at touching the lives of people within Otukpo/Ohimini. I will gather young minds from our constituency to come together, brainstorm and bring out policies in form of blills aimed at imporving the well being of our people. I will make sure that all the projects appropriated in the budget meant for Otukpo/Ohimini are executed within the giving period of time and this will be done by intellectually engaging the nessesary Government Ministry or parastater in charge of the said project meant for our people. Gone will be the days were contractors abandon jobs given to them after mobilization as I shall always protect the interest of the good people of Otukpo/Ohimini at any given point in time.
Koffi Anan once said and I quote “Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society’s margins, all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies”. I am a man passionate about the Youths, and this has been reflected in my choice of Supervising Councillor for Health Ohimini Local Government Council, Hon Verserse Collins Agida as the Director General of my Campaign Organisation WILSON ECHE OCHEJE CAMPAIGN ORGANISATION ‘WEOCO’ and Comr John Acha from Akpegede in Otukpo LG as Media and Publicity Secretary. My campaign organisation are strictly made of passionate youths, young brilliant minds from Otukpo/Ohimini who have not falied to impress since assuming their roles. Nobel Peace Prize recipient and Indian Child activist Kailash Satyarthi once said “the power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of the young people” and as a youth pragmatists I totally agree with Kailash and that is why my first two years as a Representative at the Green Chambers will be centered around the youths of Otukpo Ohimini. I will put my contituency development funds into good use by providing grants for youths who have skills to start up a small businesses. And for youths who are yet to acquire skills, we shall engage them in activities aimed in teaching them any skill of their choice.
By the grace of God, I am a successful business Man both at home and abroad, and I believe Ii have what it takes to give the good people of Otukpo/Ohimini purposeful Representation at the Federal Level void of corrupt intentions and practices. I am not contesting office to make money, as a young business man, a Principal Partner at an International Business Firm, and a Managing Director at a Micro finance Bank, I believe I have what takes to lead to people of Otukpo Ohimini. My dream is to see what belongs to the good people of Otukpo/Ohimini get to them in one Piece. I represent a new style of Politics, a new generation of politicians who put duty and service before personal Intrest. I am only intrested in what interest my people and as such will work hard to deliver every democratic dividends that is due to my people of Otukpo/Ohimini Federal Constituency.
Choose a leader who will invest in Building bridges, not walls, books, not weapons, morality, not corruption, intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance, stability, not fear and terror, peace, not chaos, love, not hate, cnvergence, not segregation, tolerance, not discrimination, fairness, not hypocrisy, substance, not superficiality, character, not immaturity, Transparency, not secrecy, justice, not lawlessness, environmental improvement and preservation, not destruction, truth, not lies. You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful. The change we seek can not be effected by people outside, the change we seek wilo not come tomorrow, the change we seek is right before us. We are the change we seek, and if we must live a good life and enjoy the basics of life then we must all engage in choosing the right Leaders. We must put aside party sentiments and vote for the person who has the right blue print and workable plan to help salvage our society not people who come and campaign by castigating opponents and past leaders with out any plan for the people he seeks to represent.
