Aniocha people at home and abroad were on Sunday told to embrace politics anchored on qualities like credibility, competence and ability to deliver the dividend of democracy to the people.
Making the call in Ogwashi Uku, a group under the umbrella, Aniocha Leaders of Today said “the next governor must be a person with articulate vision and unquestionable credibility”.
The leaders who described Ngozi Olejeme as the best hand for the governorship job in 2015 said the NSITF boss built a strong and purposeful relationship among the various communities in Anioma.
“Dr. Ngozi Olejeme stands out of the pack of pretenders, traders and contenders. She is a large hearted philanthropist, a reputable humanist, a God fearing individual and a very successful woman, whose success flows not from her material possession but from the many lives she has touched in the state with her love and kindness” the leaders said.
According to a statement by the National Coordinator of the group, Mr. Michael Uwechie, the leaders said “ Olejeme’s ambition is vital to the development of the state”.
“She is coming to serve and not to make money” the statement said.
The leaders appealed to the governor of the state, the chairman of the PDP at the state level and other chieftains of the party not to do a great disservice to the people by working against Olejeme’s interest.
The statement also reminded the people to be careful of those who claimed to be in the governorship race, yet fixed their pockets by blackmailing other aspirants.
“Olejeme is eyeing the governorship job to develop the people and the entire place” the statement said.
“Olejeme has a very bright chance of winning the governorship election. She is the best in terms of her track records and pedigree” the statement added.
