On your first visit to his office, friendly aides direct you to an upper room reception where you fill a visitors form, indicating your purpose of visit. After assurances that “Honourable would soon attend to all of you”, the aides usher you into the elaborate office of Rt. Hon. Friday Osanebi, the member representing Ndokwa East Constituency at the Delta State House of Assembly.
Rt. Hon. Friday Ossai Osanebi, at first meeting is a positive, calm, well-defined gentleman, and detribalised personality.
Devoid of sentiments, he attends to myriad of complaints from people of various constituencies, as he usually deploys his personal resources to improve their conditions. He often times call on his colleagues on matters about their constituencies and fashioning out possible ways to help the constituents who throng to his office regularly.
Although Osanebi is presently the youngest legislator in Delta State House of Assembly, the maturity and dexterity he brilliantly exhibits at plenary sessions confirms his greater Legislative zeal to making laws for the good governance of a polity.
His view of the legislative mandate is that a lawmaker should, in the light of the severe economic hardships in the country, not only make laws and check the excesses of the executive arm but also seek ways to cushion the sufferings of his people, particularly the large army of unemployed youths.
He insists that as a legislator, the desire to serve the people must override any other sentiment in order to “build the Delta State of our dreams.” “Everyone must work as a team with the collective desire and objective of bringing about development and sustainable growth through the instrumentality of legislation.”
What makes his humane activities so commendable is the exemplary manner he uses his empowerment programmes to assist the youths, elders, women, widows and even infants through scholarship awards, skill acquisition, cars, motor-cycles, provision of generating sets and sundry tool kits for artisans, and cash grants to petty traders and donation of valuable items to orphanages.
Osanebi’s rare feat as an eloquent, erudite and philanthropic lawmaker recently led to the implicit vote of confidence passed on him by Youth Presidents from the Thirty six (36) clans in Ndokwa nation as well as the community Youth Chairmen which make up the clans as a result of his interest in youth development through empowerment.
While Rt. Hon. Friday Osanebi’s determination to promote the overall development interest of Ndokwa and his willingness to support the youths for sustained unity, peace and security in the communities is growing, he has also initiated laudable modalities for effective wealth creation and distribution at the grassroots level.
Rt. Hon. Friday Ossai Osanebi was born on the 7th of October, 1980 to the families of Chief and Mrs. Ossai Osanebi of Umuedem Quarters in Beneku Town, Ndokwa East Local Government Area of Delta State.

And afterwards, proceeded to Orogun Grammar School where he obtained his Secondary School Certificate in flying colours. He later gained admission into the prestigious Enugu State University of Science And Technology ESUT where he undertook a Degree course in Material and Metallurgical Engineering and graduated.

He also served as Vice President of South-South Youth Leaders Forum before venturing into politics and won the election into the House of Assembly to represent Ndokwa East State Constituency and a successful business man.

He has given out as gift over 600 motor-cycles to jobless youths and a well over120 Cars under his empowerment program. His scholarship programs knows no bounds as it cuts across both the indigent students of Ndokwa East Local Government Area in particular, Ndokwa Nation and Deltans at large.
