It is a great honour to share in the joy of your birthday. Today is indeed special to some of us that you have taught the basic essentials of leadership. A full year will not be enough to set down the great programs you quietly supported through me.
At every instant you reenacted your commitment to help youths of Idoma extraction get good jobs and empowerment.
One of the unforgettable programs you midwife and sponsored was the Door2Door Campaign Organization. With this, you created a platform for me to lead one of the greatest youth movement in the history of Nigerian politics: we caused a creative disruption that uplifted the veil to usher in a space for youths in politics. Today the Organization has birthed over a thousand grassroots and opinion leaders.
In building a bridge for young athletes to meet their dreams, you established MarkDBall Basketball fiesta and secured funding for it to become Africa’s biggest Basketball event. The thousand of Children, Youths and professionals that have benefited from the event would remember you for your good works.
Your leadership acuity was again brought to the fore when you facilitated Home Land Defense Initiative to proffer solution to security concern in Idoma land. The boys that surrendered their old ways to turn to new live in the spirit of Home Land Defense have become more useful to the Society.
I could go on and on but today is not a day of words but of celebration. A resounding celebration to you in this new year and many more to come.
Ogaba James Oche, Transition Chairman Ado Local Government.
