According to a statement which reads: ” As Engr. Joseph Olusegun Stephen Celebrates his birthday today, I, join family, friends, business associates and the people of Kogi West Senatorial District to congratulate and felicitate him on this great occasion of a new age.
Without mincing words, you’re a man with different progressive shades, a mobilizer of resources and a unifier.
“Engr. Joseph is one of the fine brains and a great unifier from Yagba land. One who will put his people first in every situation that gives room for peace, unity and progress. These features about you sir became further glaring to everyone particularly in the role you played in the just concluded Kogi West Senatorial Seat Primary election of the All Progressive Congress. Where you willingly sacrificed your ambition for the unity of Yagba land. You are truly a unifier. I am happy to celebrate with you on this auspicious occasion of your birth anniversary”.
