In release signed by the APGA Anambra State Chairman and made available to APGA New Media, Sir Obi described the appointment as well deserved.
The statement reads in part, the Holy Bible in proverbs chapter 22, verse 29 says: “show me a man who is diligent in his work, he will stand in the presence of kings and not in the presence of unknown men” one man that has distinguished himself in proving to be a diligent man is Ozonkpu Dr Victor Ike Oye, the national chairman of the third largest political party in Nigeria, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) who has in his public, private, political and community life, probed that he is a diligent leader that can be trusted.
‘Hence, last week, President Muhammadu Buhari announced the appointment of Dr Ike Oye as member of the steering committee for the Preparation of Medium Term National Development Plan from 2021 to 2025 and Nigeria Agenda, 2050. These two will replace Nigeria Vision 20:20 and Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, both lapsing by December 2020.
‘Members of the steering committee, who are seasoned Nigerians of impeccable character and conduct, will play key roles in providing oversight, guidance and direction for the preparation of the two plans aimed at accelerated and coordinated national economic growth, lifting millions of Nigerians out of poverty and improving the general well being of Nigerians.
‘There is no doubt that Ozonkpu’s presidential appointment is well deserved and a profound testament to his leadership acumen and sagacity.
‘The appointment, despite his party affiliation, demonstrates Dr Ike Oye’s capacity in peoples oriented endeavours and nation building. Chief Ike Oye has proved on many occasions that he is determined and focused on bringing out the best in whatever task that is given to him. He has excelled in all the major assignments committed to his hands.
‘Ozonkpu Ike Oye has been around governments, having served in various public service and party leadership. He has shone like a million stars in every endeavor. Good people are rare, nice people are scarce, but people like Victor Ike Oye are usually sort after.
‘That APGA is the only political party that has its own building at Abuja is due to the leadership quality and tenacity of purpose of Ozonkpu.
‘Ike Oye has paid his dues in all areas of ramification, having touched many lives through several philanthropic gestures and community service. He has earned APGA greater glory such that Nigerians now consider it to be a greater party.
‘Since his emergence as APGA national chairman, Ike Oye has been a leading voice on issues affecting Nigeria. He has proved on many occasions that he is a Leader to be reckoned with in defending his party members, kinsmen and Nigerians. Because of his passion for a better Nigeria, Chief Ike Oye lent his support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to China, at a point that many opposition leaders were against the Federal Government’s initiatives.
‘He said that the country’s economic partnership with China was in Nigeria’s best interest, insisting that many countries of the world had started showing interest in China because of the vast opportunities it held and because of the economic giant it had become.
‘While assuming office in June 2015, the APGA national chairman promised to take the party to greater heights through “building a new and cohesive political movement founded on mutual love, peace and fraternity, devoid of bitterness and acrimony”. Today, Ozonkpu Ike Oye has been working in line to his promise.
‘No doubt, a good leader is the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. Under Ozonkpu Dr Ike Oye, APGA won more national and states house of assembly elections across the federation, while APGA has witnessed democratic principles encouraged by united National working Committee.
As the All Progressives Grand Alliance felicitates with and congratulates our National Chairman on this enormous national assignment, we implore the Almighty God to continue to bestow him with more wisdom and grace for his tremendous services to APGA in particular and Nigeria in general,’ the statement read.
