RT. Hon (ENGR.) Victor Onyekachi Ochei (Speaker)

RT. HON (ENGR.) VICTOR OCHEI

Rt. Hon. (Engr.) Victor Ochei, an indigene of Onicha Olona in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State was born on February 25, 1969 in Kano to the noble family of Donald Ochei and Madam Monica Juliet Ochei, both deceased. He had his primary education at the Methodist Primary School and the secondary level at the St. Thomas Secondary School, both in Kano.

Armed with an excellent West Africa School Certificate result, young Victor, in his quest for educational fulfillment, proceeded to the prestigious University of Benin, where he bagged a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering.

Thereafter, he went for the mandatory National Youth Service at Ondo State. Laced with entrepreneurship zeal he relocated to Asaba, the fledging capital of Delta State, where he took to printing of Calendars and Memorabilia in observance to the timeless saying that ”little drops of water make a mighty ocean”.

 In line with the above diction, Hon. Victor Ochei assiduously concentrated on his resolve to excel, through the establishment of DavNotch Nigeria Limited, a Company that has grown from the cradle to a giant global figure within a fourteen year span.
As he ascended the ladder of entrepreneurial accomplishment, he equally embraced philanthropy as a key ingredient in the service to humanity, culminating in his founding of VICTOR OCHEI FOUNDATION, a non-govermental organisation, which though with limited financial resources, still provided succor to Aniocha North polity through the provision of easy means of transportation, encouraging small and medium scale business and a committed belief in the education sector, culminating in various scholarship schemes to brilliant, but indigent students, erecting classrooms and fencing of such Secondary Schools.

Rt. Hon. Ochei’s penchant for education as the veritable tool for societal development, resonates from his late father’s mantra of that “the only legacy one can bequeath to offspring is education”
Little wonder therefore, that he recently donated sixteen brand new buses to Secondary Schools in Aniocha North.
In the political realm, Hon. Ochei comes across as a rare chemistry of integrity, tenacity of purpose and cerebral attainments going by his sound resume.
 

On his debut in politics, in 2003, he emerged the Deputy Minority Leader of Delta State House of Assembly having been elected on the platform of the United Nigerian People Party, UNDPP, a position he held till 2006.

On his second missionary journey, he opted for the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) and expectedly got re-elected into the State legislature, and was entrusted with the Chairmanship of the influential House Committee on Education till the phasing out of the fourth assembly of the Delta State House of Assembly.

Still desirous of serving his people, he contested the April 26, 2011 election and re-elected into the State Legislature for a third term and subsequently elected, Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly.

A man of exemplary comportment, he parades this string of awards, ranging from:
- An award of Excellence by Mrs V.O. Obuagu, an erstwhile Commissioner for Education in Delta State, for valuable contribution to the growth of education in the State.
- Fellowship Award by the Federal College of Education (Technical) Asaba.
- The Paul Harris Fellow Award, courtesy, the Rotary International.
- Merit Award by the Nigerian Association of French Teachers in recognition of contributions toward the improvement of French Language in Delta State.

As an avowed lover of education, he has in addition to his first degree in Engineering a Post-Graduate Diploma from the prestigious Harvard University USA, as well as a Masters’ Degree in Corporate Governance from the Leeds Metropolitan University, United Kingdom.
He is currently studying Law at the Delta State University, Oleh.
Hon. (Engr.) Victor Onyekachi Ochei unarguably, is a summary of sublime qualities, an erudite believer of the golden rule, a consummate philanthropist flowing with innate abilities of stimulating humanity to greater heights.
