A scion of the Dafinone Family, Chief Ede Dafinone, has told leaders of the Okpe nation that he stands for good governance and integrity and would do everything possible to protect the peopleâ€™s rights to professional representation, sustainable economic development, quality education, job creation, improved healthcare services and poverty alleviation through empowerment.
Chief Dafinone who is seeking to represent Delta Central in the Senate in the 2011 elections in Delta State, said he had been content with the little he was doing for fellow human beings within the circumference of his reach and means, until he was convinced that he could have a wider platform to render more beneficial services to humanity as a politician.
”I am saying that I am a democrat, with a firm belief in the supremacy of the will and the choice of the majority. With fathomless and eternal thanks to God, I am a child of privileged background. I am most happy to have realized very early in life, the lesson that life is nothing if we do not use our vantage positions, to leave the world better than we met it, by improving on the quality of our environment and our fellow human beings.”
Dafinone who was at the headquarters of Okpe Union in Lagos to ask for the support of the Okpe people to actualize his senatorial ambition said if elected, he would bring his professional knowledge and experience to bear on a wide range of public policy issues and topics.
