We are here to celebrate our collective victory at the poll.
We are here also to celebrate our new council executives, our victorious councillors and success recorded so far.
I thanked our party elders, leaders, our youths and women, for the support and solidarity demonstrated all through the period of electoral campaigns and voting process, Comrade Osadebe noted.
He invited the people to join forces with his administration at moving the council's welfare further as his leadership is committed to be open to all who are progressive and constructive.
The work of developing our council belong to everybody, we are immediately embarking upon works for the goodwill and welfare of our people.
As we advance further in our development plan and schemes for our people, my administration will want to use Oshimili South LGA as a grassroot model of what it really takes to set standards for other local government areas in Delta State.
Our doors are open to all to come knocking at, if you cannot come to call us, we will come to you, if you call us, all we want is a progressive and steadily advancing Oshimili South LGA.
During a one on one media chat with the recently sworn in vice chairman of the council, Comrade Sunny Obi Nwose, he pointed out what the council-community leaders relationship will be like.
Just as you heard the council chairman, this government belongs to the people, we mean every word therein.
We are open and committed to the traditional institutions, we will respect them, honour their rights and entitlements.
Under our administration, all that is due them, will surely get to them, Comrade Sunny Obi Nwose said.
