…Says He Has Demonstrated True Leadership Worth Emulation.
A pan Isoko group, the Isoko Ethnic Nationality Movement (IENM) has commended the statesmanship of the Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for his sacrifices and benevolence deployed to mitigate the hardship occasioned by the global pandemic which has almost destroyed national and states economies.
The Isoko people under the auspices of Isoko Ethnic Nationality Movement in an open commendation letter sent to the Obarisi of Urhobo land, His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, thanked him for being an embodiment of true leadership and a pacesetter with his constant display of love and empathy to his constituents particularly, the downtrodden who are in the most critical state of vulnerability.
The statement which was jointly signed by Hon. Goddy Ewerode and Otunba Nick Ovuakporie, President and Secretary respectively on behalf of the Isoko Ethnic Nationality Movement, was a direct reaction to the disbursement of over N85,000,000.00 (Eighty-five Million Naira), being personal funds of the Deputy President of the 9th Senate as palliatives to about 17,000 households across villages, communities and towns in the 8 local government areas of Delta Central Senatorial district of Delta State.
IENM expressed delight watching the videos and pictures of the various beneficiaries who were full of ecstasy having received their cash in an event that has gone down in history as a huge success in the annals of our democratic dispensation since the restoration of democracy in 1999.
The Isoko people therefore urge other Nigerians particularly politicians, to borrow a leaf from the template now institutionalized by Senator Omo-Agege so as to build a society where love and compassion becomes a norm that could help reduce despondency in our society, the statement added.
