The Chairman of Tony Amechi Foundation, TAF, Engineer Tony Amechi, felicitates with the man he described as the shining light of Ndokwa politics, the Ochiosa 1 of Ndokwa nation, Chief ( Senator) Patrick Osakwe, on the occasion of his birthday anniversary today, August 10, 2020, saying that the two term Senator has demonstrated in all intents and purposes that he is indeed the father of Ndokwa politics.
He further stressed that the septugeniarian is living a life, worthy of emulation and as such will continue to be a role model to the younger generation.
He further described the distinguished senator and business mogul, as an entrepreneur of high repute, who’s reaches and bounds are well beyond political and ethnic affiliations. As a lawmaker for the Federal republic of Nigeria, Chief Osakwe, Amechi noted has contributed in no small measures to the lives of his people, his constituents and humanity in general.
He noted that history will always be kind to the law maker, citing that as one of the astute personalities who stood for the struggle for the resource control, posterity will never forget him and that Ndokwa nation is proud to have him as the pivotal of Ndokwa politics.
Amechi, who is the Managing Director, Liquefied Resources Limited, USA & Liquefied Resources Engineering & Production Limited, Nigeria, and Liquefied Resources SARL, Cameroon and
CEO, TAJ Machinery Limited, Nigeria, Cameroon and USA, reminisce that he has always have very high regards for the Ndokwa entrepreneur cum politician as far back as his young age when he can still recall the superlative relationship between the high chief and his late grandfather, Chief Igba Onyenike, whom Chief Osakwe had a superlative relationship with. He pointed out that based on the very high regards that existed between the duo and other personal reasons he has chosen to celebrate with distinguished Senator on these laudable milestones of achievements.
Engineer,Tony Amaechi, the Ndokwa-born investor in the Nigerian bitumen industry, in a glowing tribute to the Ndokwa-born former legislator said, the 72-year-old is maverick in character, leader of repute, quintessential and distinguished in all he does, adding that he exuded weird strength more in business than in politics, noting that there was a time when Chief Osakwe “Flash Pools”was a household name in the country, a medium he used to emancipate most Nigerians from the shackles of poverty.
He therefore pray that the almighty God grant the septuagenarian a glorious long days in the land of the living because to us in Ndokwa land, he is the father we look up to. He has given us enough reason to honour and respect him as long as he he lives.
On behalf of the foundation and my humble family, we wish our amiable leader a happy birthday and many more years in good health.
