Emulate Olejeme?s virtues, Nwaoboshi advises Ali, others

The call was made by the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Delta Chapter, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi when Dr. Olejeme and her supporters visited the state secretariat of the party.

Nwaoboshi, who extolled the rare virtues of Olejeme as the most humble governorship aspirant in the state, advised politicians in the state not to go the way of Mrs. Marian Ali, wife of Ahmadu Ali, the erstwhile national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and her associates.

?Let me welcome Dr. Ngozi Olejeme to our state secretariat. I have three reasons of welcoming her. Firstly, Dr. Olejeme is a loyal party member. Secondly, she is a woman who has respect for manhood and humanity. She does not belong to those people that slap men and women. A slap on the state chairman is a slap on the PDP in Delta State. Thirdly, we are appreciative of her humility?

Nwaoboshi stated that Olejeme?s humble background and attitude found full expression in her approach to the party executive committee.

?This befitting edifice that you are seeing today was built with the contributions of leaders and supporters of the party. Today, even without prompting, you felt you cannot enter this secretariat without doing something. We want to thank you profusely for this wonderful presentation of the sum of N10million to furnish the secretariat. We will not disappoint you. We will do all the needful. When you come again, we will show you what we have done with the money? he said.

Noting that Dr. Olejeme assisted greatly in the positioning of Oshimili South PDP, Nwaoboshi stated that although in every sense of a loyal party member, Olejeme saw the need to strengthen the party at the ward, local government and state levels.

?Let me also thank you on behalf of Oshimili South. The chairman of Oshimili South told me that you rented the office and went further to give them a brand new bus. I want to thank you for that wonderful gesture?

He further praised Dr. Olejeme for respecting the leadership of the party. ?We have respect for people who respect us. Since you have come to seek permission from me as the state chairman and members of the state executive to enter the state to canvass, we give you the permission. We give you the permission to canvass for vote. In your usual humility, ask for vote?

Nwaoboshi regretted that the greatest tragedy of our times is that ?many politicians are noise makers?

He therefore urged her supporters to play politics of honesty and love.

?I can see many political warriors around you; people who can help Dr. Olejeme to win vote. They are not the people who make noise. Dr. Olejeme is my sister and you have to be honest to her. Follow her with all honesty and do what you know is right for her to win the 2015 governorship election?

Meanwhile, ahead of the 2015 general elections, the chairman of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), Dr. Ngozi Olejeme has described her visit to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) secretariat as one of the sure steps to Delta State Government House, saying that her coming is symbolic. ?I am the first governorship aspirant to visit this new secretariat. I will definitely be the flag bearer of the party and also win the 2015 governorship election in the state? Dr. Olejeme said.

Dr. Olejeme who was in the state secretariat to inform the leaders of the party of her governorship ambition said ?I just need the support of El Shaddai, the Lord God Almighty to be governor of Delta State. ?When Godswill Akpabio was vying for the governorship position of Akwa Ibom, the incumbent governor, Obong Victor Attah did not support him. Today, Akpabio is the governor of the state. We don?t need the support of anybody. We need the support of God?

She urged other governorship aspirants in the party to support her ambition.
?In Oshimili South, I found out that my ward members were holding meetings in the chairman?s house. They had no office. I changed the status of my ward. I give them N1million monthly to host meeting. I also give stipends. The rent of PDP secretariat in Oshimili South expired. They contacted me and I quickly paid the rent. At the state level, I did a lot for the people. I gave many unemployed graduates jobs. I also opened offices in Delta State. My brothers who are in the governorship race should see where the pendulum swings and support me to make Delta State great? she said.

Olejeme who also praised Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan for contributing to the development of the state, promised to change the face of the state.
?Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has done very well. He has done a lot for us. I will carry on where he stops. I will turn this state around. I will make Delta State a paradise on earth? he added.

Uduaghan praises Asagba, Eze Emu, others

Director General of Olejeme Campaign Organization, Mr. Emmanuel Oritsejolomi Uduaghan Wednesday hailed the short listing of the Chairman of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF), Dr. Ngozi Olejeme for the 2015 Delta State governorship by the Anioma Congress.

He also praised the Asagba of Asaba, Prof Chike Edozien, Eze Emu of Emu, His Royal Majesty, Obuenwe Ekpechi Ulu, Obi of Ute- Okpu, His Royal Majesty, Obi Solomon Chukwuka and other Anioma traditional rulers, elders and youths for crowning Olejeme?s relentless efforts with their endorsement.

In a statement issued in Asaba Wednesday, Uduaghan described Dr. Olejeme?s endorsement by the Anioma Congress as a testimony of the recognition of her immense ability and contributions to both Delta North and the country. ?There is no doubt that your life achievements, humility, sincerity of purpose and love for mankind has contributed immensely to your success as the leading Anioma governorship aspirant? he said.

?Dr. Olejeme is a very good choice. I have every confidence that she will be a great governor? he said.

Stressing that Dr. Olejeme has a plethora of all that a leader should have, Uduaghan said ?Olejeme is overwhelmingly magnanimous?

?Dr. Olejeme possesses the ability, courage, the sincerity and the guiding philosophy to provide the right leadership for the betterment of the affairs of Delta State? he added.

In a related development, the former DELTA State Commissioner for Lands, Survey and Urban Development, Mr. Raymos Guanah, Wednesday has accused some politicians and community leaders of hatching evil motives aimed at dividing Deltans, destroying the solidarity and possibly provoking political tension and crises in the state.

In a statement issued in Asaba Wednesday morning, Guanah described the views credited to the Acting President General of Urhobo Progress Union, Chief Joe Omene as a display of outright malice against Dr. Olejeme.

?Dr. Ngozi Olejeme is an embodiment of respect, loyalty, honesty, progress, peace and prosperity in Delta State. She is the only aspirant in Delta State with the vision, goodwill, contacts and machinery to win the 2015 governorship election for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). She is also the most serious aspirant for the 2015 Delta State gubernatorial race and the only person who has a work plan? he said.

Guanah who is also the Deputy Director General, Olejeme Campaign Organization said the campaign organization is highly perturbed by the statements of some leaders and therefore condemn in strong terms words used in describing the preparation of Dr. Olejeme for the 2015 governorship election.

?With due respect to the Urhobo Nation, if the statement credited to Chief Joe Omene is true, then it is unfortunate. Dr. Omene?s views on the preparation of Dr. Ngozi Olejeme can never be a representation of the Urhobo Nation? he said.

?Whether taken literally or figuratively, it is obvious that he intends to expose Dr. Olejeme to ridicule, hatred and contempt by his actions? Guanah said.

Emphasizing that the UPU is a socio-cultural organization and not a political party, Guanah said ?From the time of Mukoro Mowoe, the UPU has played a very vital role in bringing Urhobo together and uniting Nigerians.

Guanah, who also unfolded Olejeme?s political blue print, advised Chief Omene to be very careful about the kind of utterances he makes.

?Dr. Olejeme will focus on education, health, roads, water and agriculture. She will use her vast contacts and goodwill to attract resources for the benefit of the people. She will also encourage the private sector operators through financial and fiscal incentives to develop and locate productive ventures in the state?.
On her achievements, Guanah said Dr. Olejeme worked so hard to make life meaningful to Nigerians, particularly the good people of Delta State.

?She has gained respect around the country and among her peers? he added.

Meanwhile, the Olejeme Campaign Organization has announced that it has decided to reschedule the meeting with the state chairman of the party, originally scheduled for Tuesday, October 14, 2014.

A statement in Asaba signed by the Director of Communications, Olejeme Campaign Organization, Mr. Henry Ebireri said the Chairman of Nigeria Social Trust Fund (NSITF), Dr. Ngozi Olejeme would be in Asaba Wednesday to tell the Delta State Chairman of the party, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi and other members of the state executive committee about her ambition.

?The NSITF boss will also meet with party functionaries in Aniocha South, Aniocha North, Ndokwa West, Ndokwa East, Isoko North, Isoko South, Ughelli North, Warri North, Ehiope West, Sapele and Okpe? the statement said.

?The top PDP governorship aspirant is also expected to interact with members of the party from the 25 local government areas on Wednesday in Asaba? the statement added.
