Obin believes that leadership goes beyond partisan politics and provision of physical infrastructures, which he views as basic rights of the people. His ideal political leadership is one that ensures the common man who cannot afford a car to drive on the newly constructed road or the fee to access the beautiful and expensively crafted Stadium, must be elevated to a level where they can independently and sustainably afford quality education, health care, secured jobs, irrespective of their political or religious affiliation.
Widely known and accepted by good people of Biase, especially the youth who fondly refer to him as "The Digital Chairman", Obin recently broke a record of being the first chairmanship aspirant to have gone round the entire 11 wards of Biase local government area, and covering almost every community and village, consulting with political leaders, village and clan heads, paramount rulers, councils of elders, women, youth, students, etc, even before his party primary election.
With a focus on the youth, Philip Obin believes a new Biase is possible!
