Ese Owie, candidate of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) for Edo south senatorial district, has constituted his campaign team ahead of the 2019 polls.
The campaign is christened ‘Team Impact 2019’.
Speaking with journalists in Edo state at the weekend, Christopher Ojeikere, publicity secretary of the ADP in Edo, named Izedonmwen Oshodin as leader of the campaign.
Ojeikere said Oshodin played key roles in the second, third republics of the federation and at the dawn of the country’s current “democratic epoch was a major stakeholder in the stabilisation of citizen’s led governance.”
“A grassroots mobilizer and consensus builder he brings on-board over three decades of hands-on, practical experience in political process re-engineering,” he said.
“In driving the efficiency and effectiveness of the campaign, Oshodin shall be supported by five deputy team leads that shall superintend the following sub-teams:
“Stephen Orubor, Esq, deputy team lead (strategy & organization). Silas Momoh, deputy team lead (Information & Communication). Lady Osafanmwen Idehen, deputy team lead (empowerment & welfare).
“Ekpen Ogbeide-Nosabota, deputy team lead (documentation & special duties). Momoh Ibrahim, deputy team lead (diversity & Integration).”
Ojeikere said Owie kept his promise of representing the collective interests and aspirations of ethnic nationalities in Edo south.
“Assuring the Party’s teeming supporters of victory at the Polls, he enjoined them to vigilantly protect their votes and sensitize all and sundry on the importance of performing their civic duties,” he said.
“In his view, electing Dr Owie as Senator in 2019 is the only means of guaranteeing sustainable and impact driven development in Edo south.”
The formal inauguration of the team would take place during the week at the ‘Team Impact ‘19’ campaign office in Benin city.
