Some Leaders Are Born Sagacious

By Comr. Austin Obihia.

There is no doubt, that, some leaders are born sagacious with undiluted administrative prowess for quality representation when they are called to service, while some are trained to be sagacious. Hon. Festus Chukwuyem Okoh (Chuky Dandy), the Majority Whip and Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation in the Delta State House of Assembly is a born sagacious leader whose quality representation and legislating for Ika South Constituency is indeed speaking unquantifiable volume in the politics of Delta State, and by extension, for the good governance of Ika South Constituency.

When a man of an unbiased mindset with orchestrated purpose for the service of the people is in the corridor of leadership to lead or represent his people, the people rejoices. Leaders with such quality are always humble, philanthropic, altruistic, accessable, easily to forgives, transparent, accountable, and faithful to the finishing work of our Lord Jesus Christ.

But, the irony of this life is that, no matter how good you are, some people will still castigate you for destruction, or cast aspersion on you unjustly. In life, we have two sets of people: lovers of good and haters of good. From the human existence, some people belongs to the family of Abel, while some to the family of Cain. And we all know the history of Cain and Abel in the Bible.

The man, ‘Chuky Dandy’, deserves our encouragements, supports, prayers for his quality representation, and, the enablement to do more for us . Thank you so much sir for your quality representation. The Ika South Constituents are very much proud of you.Keep it up, sir…
