Two senators representing Delta State have expressed their preparedness to utilize their extensive professional expertise in their roles as elected representatives, engaging in lawmaking and fulfilling their assigned responsibilities. Joel-Onowakpo Thomas (representing Delta South) and Ede Dafinone (representing Delta Central) are both accomplished accountants who belong to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) and currently serve in the National Assembly.
During a thanksgiving event organized by Onowakpo in Irri community, Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta, the senators highlighted their commitment to leveraging their business and public service backgrounds. They emphasized the importance of utilizing their wealth of experience to advocate for development programs and policies that would directly benefit their districts, Delta State, and the entire nation of Nigeria.
“We are bringing the best of input into governance, which simply means that we are focusing on development, which is trying to put projects in the budget that will impact positively in the lives of the people.
“We are going to make laws that will affect the lives of the people. Then we can see how we can create employment for our teeming youths and also provide employment for those who are not in an employable state. So in all ramifications, we are bringing professionalism into governance.
“And I think for anybody who wants to make significant strides in Nigeria, Delta State will benefit immensely from the combined services of the caliber of people that Delta State have taken to the red chamber.
“They will benefit immensely from myself and from my brother from Delta Central Senatorial District. We are both core professionals, we are catalyst for change and we are ready to do that.
On his part, Mr. Dafinone said: “I am thankful that my brother from this senatorial district is a very well distinguished gentleman and professional chartered accountant. So as a fellow professional we will bring added value to the 10th Senate.
“We will bring a professional approach. But significantly our people sent us to bring development back home for them, development that touches them generally and specifically.
“So the trust of our jobs will be not just to tar roads or develop the health sectors but also individuals. To let the empowerment touch individuals generally.”
