The out gone chairman of Ndokwa East Local Government Council, Mr. Joan Governor, has called for regular and proper checkmating of the political class, with a view to strengthening the nation’s democracy.
Joan made the call in his opening remarks as the Chairman on the occasion of the official inauguration of “Oganisu Political Forum” and launching of her 2021 Calendar.
While appraising the concept of the political group, he stated, “I commend the effort of the leaders and members of Oganisu Political Forum; I am happy about this group because it will serve as a shade for us politicians, for checkmating both the leaders and the led. I advise you to sustain it Joan said.”
He expressed joy that such PDP political pressure group was formed during his time in office and pledged to totally identity with the leaders and members.
Speaking further, Mr. Joan, the former council chairman charged the new exco members to shun all forms of maladministration, such as distrust, self-centeredness and insincerity, but should be open, transparent and accountable to other members.
Joan advised them against undue and selfish pressures capable of mortgaging the original purpose of forming the forum, adding: “Do not yield to politicians against your conscience so that you won’t sell out to selfish, greedy and money bag politicians.”
Also speaking at the occasion as a special guest of honour, the Delta State Commissioner for Trade and Investment, Hon. Chika Ossai congratulated the new executive members of the forum and the organizers.
Hon. Ossia charged them to guard against what he referred to as “Fizzling Out” of the form soon, saying that the political group should not be tied to a particular individual or political groups if they want it to last.
He charged the leaders to pilot the group for the good of Ndokwa East Local Government Area and beyond.
