See How Dennis Idahosa Is Changing The Narrative In Constituency Project Implementation In Ovia

Is Ovia blessed to have a youthful lawmaker? What are the challenges facing the constituents of Ovia? How can Ovia contribute its own quota to the development of Nigeria?

Ovia Federal Constituency is made up of Ovia South West and Ovia North East constituency in Edo State and it happens to be an oil-producing community.

The lawmaker representing Ovia Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Hon Dennis Idahosa ls presently at the forefront of implementing people-oriented projects across the Federal Constituency.

A total of 25 verifiable projects ongoing across Ovia Federal Constituency were x-rayed by our reporters, a careful study of these projects clearly shows the input of the constituents in the execution of the projects.

All the 25 ongoing projects we visited were at different advanced stages of completion. The most intriguing aspect about the project implementation is that all the projects are time-constrained and the lawmaker has vowed they have to be completed within the  2020 budget circle which will elapse at the end of March 2021.

A break down of the projects include 18 schools(consisting of both primary and secondary), one health care centre, two skills acquisition centres, street light projects in seven communities, industrial borehole projects and an ultra-modern town hall building.

The unique features in all these projects are that the lawmaker is personally involved in the implementation and supervision of the projects to ensure maximum standards are met.

The residents are not left out as well as they form a chunk in the decision-making process to determine which projects are of utmost benefit to them.

After careful consultations among community members and elders, their decisions are passed to the lawmaker who in turn calls for an enlarged meeting with constituents before the final decision on which projects are more pressing to them as a community.

With each project at an advanced stage of over 90 per cent completion, the lawmaker has promised his constituents more people-oriented projects to be covered in the 2021 budget circle.

Legislative duties are not all about making laws for the people or acting as a check to the executive, proposing bills etc, legislator(s) duties also involve providing visible evidence of the “dividends of democracy”to their constituencies, hence the implementation of constituency projects in one form or the other in Nigeria.

The youthful  Lawmaker had this to say In reaction to the zeal and passion which he has exhibited so far in representing the good constituents of Ovia.

“Before I was elected, I was a grassroots man. Now that I am representing them at the federal level, I cannot be effective without having the input of our people. For that reason, I get in touch with them to give me the projects that they will appreciate. All the ongoing projects in the constituency have their inputs. It is a bottom-top approach and this will continue.”

Constituency projects are one of the ways in which a lawmaker assures his people of his quality representation at the National Assembly.

With a deliberate attempt by Hon Dennis Idahosa in changing the narratives in Ovia Federal Constituency, the constituents in no distant time would be proud to beat their chest and say they are proud of their contributions to the positive development of the country.

2023: APC Reacts To Zoning List In Circulation

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has disowned a 2023 zoning list in circulation, saying it is yet to zone its offices ahead of the forthcoming national convention.

There is a list in circulation indicating that the APC has zoned its 2023 presidential ticket to the South and chairmanship to the North, among others.

But reacting, Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Sen John James Akpanudoedehe, in a statement on Wednesday, described the list as the handiwork of speculators who are interested in running for various offices.

“People who are interested in running for one office or the other can speculate.

“As far as I am concerned, the last Caretaker Committee meeting we had, we did not discuss that [zoning].

“That is not what we are concerned with now. What we are concerned with is data collection; how to collect data without making mistake.

“We are not going to be pressurised because of sentiment and we do the wrong thing.

“Let me say that zoning is not for the Caretaker Committee alone.

“It has to do with the President, it has to do with other major stakeholders, it has to do with a lot of people.

“I want to mute the speculation. The list is not from us [Caretaker Committee].

“The President is not in town. There is no way such decision will be taken without consulting with the President, consulting with the governors and other major stakeholders,” he said.

Moses Omo-Ikirodah Felicitates With Muslims As Ramadan Fast Begins

Moses Omo-Ikirodah has appealed to Nigerians especially Muslims to use the Holy period of Ramadan to pray for the unity of the country and also seek God’s intervention to the end of the spread of the coronavirus.

He gave the advice in his message to felicitate with the Muslim community in Nigeria as they join other faithful across the world to commence the Holy month of  Ramadan.

According to him, the current insecurity ravaging the country has made it imperative that Muslims who are engaged in the Holy month of prayer and fasting should make it a point of duty to seek God’s forgiveness and mercy upon Nigeria.

He also urged the Muslim community to seek Gods intervention in curbing the menace the coronavirus pandemic has brought upon mankind.

Moses Omo-Ikirodah urged Muslims to live and act according to the importance of the Holy Month, reminding them not to lose the essence of Ramadan which is to get closer to God and a way to become more compassionate to others.

“As I wish my Muslim brothers and sisters a happy and blessed Ramadan I urge them to be God-fearing and also  remember the less privileged during this holy period while showing love towards one and another ”

The Nigerian political environment is not friendly to female politicians as patriarchy reigns supreme in the polity. This has affected the number of women folk in active politics in the country, but some are bracing the odds and proving that they are capable of even surpassing the unsatisfactory performances recorded by their male counterparts.

Legit.ng has compiled the names of 6 female politicians distinguishing themselves in politics and paving the way for greater responsibilities as the 2023 general elections draw near.

1. Senator Abidoun Olujimi The 62-years old former deputy governor of Ekiti is an example of an irrepressible politician who has seen it all and continues to break new grounds in her distinguished political career. Olujimi had made a name for herself as a broadcaster and journalist before venturing into the murky waters of politics. Currently representing Ekiti South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, she is expected to contest for the governorship election of the state in 2022.

2. Senator Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed Popularly called Binani, the senator representing Adamawa Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly came into the national political scene in 2015 and she is already a force to reckon with. Even before her foray into politics, Binani had made a name for herself in the highly competitive Nigerian business environment.

3. Natasha Akpoti 41-years old Akpoti ran for the post of Kogi Central Senatorial District seat under the Social Democratic Party and contested in the Kogi state governorship election under the same party all in 2019. She lost both contests in controversial circumstances, but more importantly, cemented her place in Nigeria’s politics as a fearless and solid politician with an unrivalled ability to mobilise people from the grassroots.

4. Gbemi Saraki At 55, Saraki is following the footsteps of her father Olusola and brother, Bukola who are both widely-respected political juggernauts in Nigeria. She is currently the minister of state for transportation and former senator who was elected to represent the Kwara Central Senatorial District in the year 2003. She is expected to flex her political muscles in 2023.

5. Senator Uche Ekwunife At just 50-years old, Senator Ekwunife has come of age in politics and keeps breaking new grounds in what has been a distinguished political career so far from the House of Representatives to the Nigerian Senate. Ekwunife will have the chance to prove her doubters wrong long before 2023 as she seeks the PDP ticket in the 2021 Anambra governorship poll.

6. Hadiza Bala Usman 45-years old Hadiza is a Nigerian politician currently serving as the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority. She was previously the chief of staff to the governor of Kaduna state from 2015 to 2016. Despite the current position, her constant foray into politics are well-documented as she continues to serve in several committees within the ruling All Progressives Congress. Her thriving political career is expecting to take shape in 2023

Meanwhile, a lot of stakeholders in Nigeria are becoming increasingly skeptical about the possibility of achieving a free, fair, and credible election in 2023 amidst the worsening security situation in the country. With the current trend of insecurity in the different geo-political zones of the country, there is a general apprehension that things could get worse before the next election.

Some prominent leaders of thought have also expressed fear that the people’s desire for a smooth change of leadership in the 2023 general elections could be marred by violence and other forms of criminalities if left unattended to by the Buhari administration.
