 Abuja/Nigeria: The member representing Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Rt. Hon Ossai N. Ossai has taken a swipe at the recent call by members of Registered Political Parties (RPP) Chairmen, for him to forget a third term bid, and deriding it a hoggish show of shame.
In a press statement, titled “2019: Rt. Hon (Dr.) Ossai N. Ossai is the Best Man For the Job”, signed by his media Aide, Mr. Chibuzo Okereke, it gave details of Ossai’s achievements since his arrival at the green chambers. 
Pointing out that the RPP call does not reflect the views of the people of the constituency as it is a faceless group of meddlesome interlopers, the statement stated: “A careful examination of the RPP’s hasty,  judgmental, and self-serving statement on who represents the enterprising people of Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency come 2019 and the faceless groups’ hoggish labour  to upturn the universally known political menopause of Hon. Olisa Imegwu is not just shameful, but has revealed how ignorant they are about Rt. Hon. Ossai’s towering accomplishments at the National Assembly and their basic lack of understanding of legislative powers, practices and procedures.”
Okereke argued that Ossai Nicholas Ossai remains the best man for the job of representing and championing the cause of Ndokwa Nation for now at the Nigeria’s House of Representatives.
He stated that for the benefit of the people and the general public, “we won’t waste our time in trying to respond to the hanging basket of lies and bogus claims peddled by the so called ‘Registered Political Party Chairmen (chairmen without secretariat, secretaries and excos)’, however, we will rather invest the opportunity to educate and enlighten the people on Rt. Hon. Ossai’s Legislative and Representation strides, which has demystified representation in Ndokwa land and delivered pride and admiration to the people.”

He continued: “It’s common knowledge that there are three key functions of the legislature including: law-making; Oversight and Representation/Constituency related activities. It’s also important to note that any meaningful performance assessment of a legislator should be measured against key indicators/targets inherent in these functions.”
Okereke the listed the achievements of Hon. Ossai Nicholas Ossai at the House of Representatives, stating that:
“Today in the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Legislative Maestro Rt. Hon. Ossai Nicholas Ossai otherwise known as the ‘Bill Process Machine’ is a leading HOR member with the highest number of bills sponsored, processed, passed into law and assented to by the President.
“Ossai has over 50 legislation/bills to his credit in the 8th Assembly alone, this is unprecedented in the history of Ndokwa Nation, and arguably in Nigeria.
“In December 2017, the President Buhari APC led-government honoured Ossai Ossai with the National Merit Impact Award for sponsoring and facilitating legislation that helped Nigeria move 24 points in the Ease of Doing Business Ranking in the world. The Award was presented to Hon. Ossai Ossai by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on behalf of the President on 11th December 2017. This is significant, this is capacity, this is influence! It brought pride to Ndokwa nation and inspired young dreamers that Ndokwa nation provides leadership and has the best.
“Just two months later, the National Assembly Press Corp Association (HOR) honoured Ossai Ossai with the National Assembly ‘Representative of the Year Award for 2017/2018’. The Press Corp is a well known aggressive watchdog of the parliament and could be said to have better knowledge of how members perform on the floor of the House and outside. By this award, the Hon. member became the  first Ndokwa son to win such award as a result of his quality representation and vibrancy in championing the cause of Ndokwa nation and Nigeria at large.
