A prominent politician and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State, Dr. Ngozi Olejeme on Wednesday lauded the leadership qualities of President Goodluck Jonathan and his commitment to the unity of Nigeria; affirming that his second term will bring further progress and development in Nigeria.
‘Happiness of citizens is the foremost objective of the current administration. The country is taking giant steps forward in every sphere of life” she said.
Recalling President Goodluck Jonathan’s achievements, particularly revamping our institutions, putting in place economic reform agenda that reduced the role of the state in the economy while strengthening the place and role of private investors and moving Nigeria toward uninterrupted power supply as well as leading by building consensus on all issues, Olejeme said 2015 would be a year of continuity, further development, hope and great expectations”
In her New Year message to Nigerians at home and abroad, Olejeme said the country would be stronger, more united, more prosperous and more powerful in 2015.

She also appealed to Nigerians to give the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) maximum cooperation.
“There is no other party in Nigeria whose membership cuts across all the geo-political zones except the PDP. The PDP is the only party that is geared toward the entrenchment of democratic ideals, good governance, fairness and the promotion of the people’s welfare “she said.
On Delta State, Olejeme pledges to contribute towards a restructured and re-engineered platform of the new face of Delta to a level where everything is not only changing for the better, but strengthened to be self-propelling”
