By Oriaifo Odion KessingtonWhen I think of “Game Changers” I always think of those who have not only faired monumentally well in politics and governance,but also those have been able to INJECT and ENTHRONE LOFTY ENCOURAGEMENTS INTO A SYSTEM WITH NEW AND FRESH IDEAS. Unarguably, this is a character of “Mentor-teacher”,Pastor Dr.Osagie Ize-Iyamu. And it comes from two things:First, when there was time for only one shot that had to be made in his business and political life,he always knew how to give the ball a shot…not just a shot, a goal always came out of it.And second, in that same situation, Pastor WANTED a hold of the BALL and later, THE GOAL. He had the confidence to take the shot; a move which was unique because even in the middle of the game, he could shift the momentum simply by his attitude, his skill, and his leadership.It is Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu who said, “For things to change, somebody somewhere has to start acting differently.” “acting differently” starts with action. Stepping out and taking a risk. I’ve recently refocused my life with a bias towards,”action “.I still remember an interview he had with THE RELIANCE MAGAZINE in 2019 where he discussed his some principles in his political life. He said, “Between you and I, if I belong to a place and I don’t see that seriousness, I will take a walk because my objective is different. Of course, how long can you live? I also do not want to play politics for too long”.“While I am still young, let me play what role I can play before I retire. I don’t have grandchildren yet but I am praying for grandchildren.
When I have grandchildren, it means I should begin to think how to look after them for my children.“I am passionate about developing Edo state, having a party that will do very well but I am not burning,” Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, added.The essence of this is that for POI It is fine to discuss new ideas – and I love doing that – but the difference between a bureaucrat and an entrepreneur is that one is eventually willing to think differently and take a risk and become a game changer in the organization.Until you know what doesn’t change, you’ll never be confident of what SHOULD change – Your principles, values, truth – what matters. In Edo 2020 , POI is the game changer and is such set to dictate the pace for a new looming era of good governance for Edo.— Kessington writes from Atuagbo-IRRUA, Edo State
