He said: “No one else after this endorsement of Ose, will come from Uzenema for the Reps seat.”

“As a community, we will all vote for Ose Anenih because we have given him our blessings and prayers. He is a good man; and he is our own.”

“He is from a good home, and his family has contributed enormously to this community, Edo State and Nigeria at large.”

In the same vein, the oldest man in the Anenih clan, Akiohiamen Robertson, has also blessed the aspiration of Ose, describing him as a worthy son who will continue to serve the community as selflessly as his father did.

Speaking on his endorsement, he (Anenih) said he was humbled by the enormous support, excitement and acceptance by his people.

He promised not to disappoint them and pledged to protect, promote the interests of his community, and to serve them to the best of his ability.

“Politics is about consultations and consensus building. I have gained the trust of my community, and now I have to do the same across the entire constituency.

“This marks the beginning of what is still a long journey. I look forward to engaging with the wider constituency so I can present to them my plans and ideas that I believe will make Esan North East/South East Constituency even greater than it currently is.”
