Rt. Hon (Engr.) Victor Onyekachi Ochei is the Aniocha North Representative of the Delta State House of Assembly, and has served for 11 years in the Delta State House of Assembly. Born on February 25, 1969, Victor Ochei hails from Ogbekenu in Onicha –Olona, Aniocha North Council area of Delta State and had his basic and secondary education at St. Thomas’ College in Kano-his place of birth.

He later proceeded to the University of Benin (UNIBEN), where he earned a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) Degree in Chemical Engineering and later obtained a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 1996, which set the stage for his success in many multi-dimensional business engagements.

He further earned the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Corporate Governance from Leeds Metropolitan University, in the United Kingdom. In the strident pursuit of his dream of helping to entrench the culture of good governance in the country, Ochei also obtained certificates in Good Governance, Effective Legislating and Improving Secondary School Education from the enviable Oxford University, University of California and the prestigious Harvard Graduate School of Education, respectively; as well as a Law Degree (LL.B) from Delta State University (DELSU).

Outside of all of these degree and certificates from credible Nigerian and transnational academic institutions, Ochei has earned the enviable fellowship of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (FNSE), for his contributions to the practice and development of engineering in the country. By that singular attainment in 2011, he became, at 42, the youngest Nigerian-living or dead- to earn the prestigious fellowship. He is also a Fellow, Institute of African Studies (F.I.A.S), University of Nigeria, Nsukka

Victor Ochei was elected Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly on 6th June, 2011 marking the commencement of the Fifth Assembly of the Delta State Legislature. He held the position of Primus Interpares of the Delta State Assembly for a period of 2years 9months of exemplary stewardship before his voluntary resignation on 18th March 2014.

Prior to his elevation as the Primus interpares of the Delta State Legislature, he had represented Aniocha North State Constituency since 2003. He was the deputy minority leader of the Third Assembly and also served as the Chairman of House Committee on Education of the penultimate Assembly.

Despite the arduous challenges facing enterpreneurs in Nigeria and the relatively low-profitability of privately-held firms, a young Ochei ventured into self-employment by founding Davnotch, which with a payroll of more than 250 direct expert staff of various competencies, has grown to become the biggest electrical engineering firm in the state and doubtlessly, one of the leading indigenous of such firms in all of Nigeria.

However, in deference to the legal and moral import of his office as Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly (DTHA) and the member representing Aniocha North constituency in the House, he had, since 2011, completely divested his shareholding in the firm, which despite his divestment, today remains a befitting tribute to the courage and investment acumen and the great vision of Ochei.

A renowned sports fan and sponsor; reputable community leader; an economic investor; a law-maker; human capital entrepreneur/developer and philanthropist extraordinaire. In each of these respects, Ochei has earned a name worthy of praise and emulation.

As a sports fan and sponsor, Ochei is a patron of the highly successful Nigerian Wheelchair Basketball Federation and Chairman, Delta State Wrestling Association. By his extraordinary devotion to the Nigerian Wheelchair Basketball Federation, Ochei has revolutionized sports for the physically-challenged and given them a positive new sense of belonging.  He has equally sponsored at great personal expense, many meets involving the physically-challenged in the country.

As a law-maker and Speaker of DTHA, Ochei has earned his name in gold, after paying his due, so to speak. As the representative of Aniocha North constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly (DTHA), has earned the respect of his constituents such that, for the first time in the history of the constituency, one representative (Ochei) has been found so worthy as to be elected into DTHA for three consecutive times.

However, it is in terms of positive community service that Ochei has become such a magnetic personality. He is a staunch member of De Saints International Club; an organization devoted fully to the well-being of the down-trodden and patron, Nigerian Wheelchair Basketball Federation. As a philanthropist/community servant, he has equally proven his mettle by way of legion scholarship awards; massive financial and other assistance to indigent students in tertiary schools; donation of more than N2m worth of books to DELSU, Abraka; the institution of a scholarship scheme for the FCET, Asaba as well as the plan to build an ultra-modern theatre for the Oleh campus of DELSU.

Hon Victor O. Ochei, who without doubt reflects the truism of his baptismal name, is also recognized and celebrated traditionally as the Olikeze of Onicha-Olona, the Ihaza of Onicha Ugbo and the Onyeze of Umuebu. He is also happily married with children.

All of these achievements, particularly the diversity of his academic and professional pursuits vis-à-vis his service to the people of Delta State, position him as an uncommonly well-rounded man of letters, experience and character with well-honed leadership skills and a passion for public service.
