Augustine Uroye: Evolution of a Political Achiever

Hon. Augustine Uroye (JP) FHNR, FCAI, MNI is a graduate of Marketing Management and has a  Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA) and Honorary Doctor of Philosophy in Public Administration (PhD)

He is an Ambassador, Universal Peace Federation and Youth Federation for World Peace.

Uroye’s penchant for helping the needy propelled him to establish the Augustine Uroye Foundation for Primary Schools.


Oki, as he is fondly called, is a successful businessman and he is widely travelled. He was Secretary to Warri South Local Government under the Chairmanship of Hon. Matthew Mofe Edema led administration in the first tenure.

That administration constructed the King George Centenary Hall, at Warri South Sub Secretariat, the Chief Joseph Sisanmi Otumara Legislative Chamber at the Council Main Secretariat, Merogun Primary School along Cemetery Road, Warri, Administrative Block for the Police ‘A’ Division, Warri and several street light as well as water projects and public conveniences spread across the 19 Wards of Warri South Local Government Area. He was an SLG per excellence, coordinating the administration.


As a former Career Environmental Health Officer in the old Warri South Local Government Area, thereafter Secretary to the Local Government and later Chairman of Warri South Local Government Transition Committee, you cannot but agree with me that Warri South Constituency 1 will move to greater heights with me, Hon. Augustine Uroye (JP) as member of Delta State House of Assembly come 2019.

This is not forgetting the knowledge, exposure, contacts and experience I have garnered over the years around the world as a successful businessman.





A key component of His Excellency, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa’s people-centered programme for Deltans, was well articulated and implemented during my spell as Chairman of Warri South Local Government Transition Committee. Through the now defunct SURE-P, my administration judiciously gave out Tricycles and financial lifelines to small scale entrepreneurs as well as engaged several adhoc workers for daily cleaning of major roads and streets in Warri.

If given the mandate to represent Warri South Constituency 1, I will sponsor legislation that will lead to the enhancement of the business of artisans and development of skills of young graduates.

My antecedent in peace building efforts and peaceful co-existence are verifiable and can be attested to by ethic as well as political leaders in Warri South Local Government Area.

I dedicated so much resources and time in peace building as Chairman of Warri South Local Government Transition Committee and I’m even more poised to consolidate on the foundation already laid if given the mandate as the next Warri South Constituency 1 legislator.

The Modular Fish Farm in Warri South Local Government Council Main Secretariat received major boost under my administration and as a matter of importance, Agriculture will be given top-most priority immediately I am sworn-in as member of Delta State House of Assembly with the people’s support. Reasonable resources will be channeled into the production of cash crops, vegetables and other agricultural produce. The partnership of community leaders will be vital in this regard as I will do everything possible to influence the executive to do the needful. 


Proper funding and rehabilitation of the health centers like we did, particularly at Orugbo Health Centre when I was Transition Committee Chairman will be further enhanced. Our adult literacy centers, primary schools and Local Education Authority, LEA Office will get the necessary funding for infrastructural upgrade.

Apart from introducing and sponsoring the necessary bills that will ensure the expansion of environmental sanitation coverage areas in the Oil City of Warri, premium attention will be accorded to street beautification, adherence to traffic rules and ensuring compliance to the original map of the structural edifice of Warri.
