2015: Olejeme is the best- Delta Leaders

0 0
Read Time:4 Minute, 34 Second

Delta Leaders have praised Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant, Dr. Ngozi Olejeme, whom they described as an administrator of no mean repute and a distinguished politician, attributes which they said made the President to offer her opportunities to serve the people and the country.

 “We have examined all the governorship aspirants, especially the leading one in the state and it is clear to us that Dr. Ngozi Olejeme is the best. She represents a Delta State that is dedicated to serving the best interests of the people; a Delta State which offers hope to the people; a Delta State where things work. Others aspirants in the PDP represent narrow, sectional and divisive tendencies which can threaten the unity, peace and progress of the state” the leaders said after a meeting in Abuja.

Stressing that Olejeme is the best governorship aspirant in the state, in terms of performance and commitment to the enlargement and deepening of democracy, the leaders said “she has all it takes to lead the state to success.”

Speaking glowingly on her achievements in Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) and other organizations, spokesperson of Delta State Political Forum (DSPF), Chief Efe Umukoro on Tuesday, 2nd December 2014, said the leaders praised her for her patriotic and courageous service as well as acknowledged her capacity to undergo painful but often necessary reforms.

“We have observed her leadership style at close range and she really excels. She is in the governorship race to bring peace and development to the state. She will restore the confidence of the people in government. She will also reinvent and locate Delta State on the path of sustained growth”

“They urged Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and PDP delegates in the state to make her the party’s touch bearer.

“The next governor must be a person of proven integrity, experience and compassion for the well-being of the people. Olejeme is a woman of wisdom, dedication and integrity.

“We are not trying to read the mind of Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, but we believe he is one person who really believes in the unity of the state and if he is to be believed to ensure a united Delta State, he must do everything possible to support Dr. Olejeme, the only reliable governorship aspirant” the leaders added.

 

 In another development, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Delta State, Dr. Ngozi Olejeme on Sunday 30th November 2014, advised Nigerians to jettison selfish interest, but to love their country more and think about what they could do for the country as a way of fostering unity and progress.

  “We must repudiate the politics of extremism and political intolerance. We must aim high and make meaningful contribution to our various communities. We must keep alive the principles of love and tolerance. We must keep the unity of this country inviolate. We must apply our knowledge for the advancement of our country” she said

 Speaking at the 2014 Non-Yoruba Peoples Cultural Festival in Lagos, the Delta State gubernatorial aspirant said; “What it takes for any society to develop is not only the resilience of the people but the commitment, dedication, personal experience and wide contacts of its leaders”.

“I have what it takes to run a better, open government that will bring progress, restore the dignity of the average Delta man and give the desired respect to traditional institutions, elders and the people” she said.

Promising to provide quality leadership for all Deltans, Olejeme said she would advance towards the vision of a united Delta.

“I’ll advance towards a strong Delta, a prosperous Delta, a peaceful Delta, a just Delta, indeed a great Delta. I’ll provide quality leadership for all Deltans. I’ll impact positively on the lives of the people. I’ll tackle the menace of poverty, hunger and the increasing rate of ignorance in the state. I’ll ensure that children get free and compulsory qualitative education while the elders enjoy adult literacy programme. I’ll turn Delta State into an industrially rich business environment. I’ll institutionalize mechanize farming. I’ll provide basic infrastructure, create employment opportunities and also provide enabling environment for people to come and invest in the state. I’ll look beyond Federation Accounts. I’ll create wealth and improve healthcare in the state. I’ll develop the rural areas. I’ll put smile on the faces of civil servants and pensioners” she promised.

She stressed that development was only possible through honest, credible leadership imbued with a sense of mission and a clear appreciation of the needs of the people.

Extoling the virtues of President Goodluck Jonathan, Olejeme said; “Nigeria is much better today.

“In the last four years, the country took giant steps forward in every sphere of life. The President is doing a lot to encourage women. He is appointing them to be ministers, advisers and board chairmen. He will be happy to see many women pass through into the elective positions in 2015.  Nigeria needs President Jonathan in 2015 to reach the envisaged heights” she said.

“PDP will form the government in 2015. The voters are prepared to use their vote to ensure the success of the party in Nigeria, particularly Delta State” she added

Cultism Allegation: An attempt to destroy my hard-earned reputation – Peterside

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 42 Second

Dr. Dakuku Peterside, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has described the allegation of cultism against him by the Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as unkind and uncharitable. For him, this is taking politics of mudslinging too far. This latest evil and immoral accusation, he believes, is an attempt to destroy his hard-earned reputation.  

 The APC candidate who stated this in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital called on politicians to focus on issues that would improve the living standards of their people rather than resorting to criminal and baseless accusation and cheap blackmail that are capable of exacerbating the already tensed political atmosphere in the state.

According to Peterside, this accusation runs contrary to his ideals as a practising Christian and preacher of the Gospel. “I am amused by this baseless allegation because as a Christian, I know where I stand with Christ.  And any attempt by anybody or group to tarnish my hard earned reputation will be resisted and challenged.  

“I never belonged to any secret society or cult group all my life including my university days and I will never be. For emphasis sake, let me unequivocally state that I was never a member of any cult as alleged by my accusers.

“From 1986 to 2011, I was a member of Church of God Mission International but for distance, I had to change my denomination to Salvation Ministries and my pastor can attest to my undiluted Christian life and spiritual standing. Curiously, this unfortunate allegation is coming from a party that Rivers People and the Christian community are alleging of parading known Ogboni members.

“Perhaps this is a diversionary tactics to divert attention from the demand of the Christian community in Rivers State that those who aspire to the high office of governor must have high moral and spiritual standing. And that the church resolve not to vote for anybody with secret society background is firm and well known, and this is highly commendable. I can say without any fear that I was never and will never join any cult.    

“For me, the issues before the electorate go beyond unfounded and criminal accusation.  I am aware that Rivers people know all of us and our moral standing and character, including the issue of Christianity and where I stand.  One would have expected my accusers to face the real issues of providing quality leadership rather than crying wolf where there is none.

“I am an open book!  In my days both at Okrika Grammar School, OGS and Rivers State University of Science and Technology where I served as National President of National Union of Rivers State Students, NURSS, among other positions, I did not join any cult group not even with the excuse of youthful exuberance. This accusation is therefore unjustified and should be disregarded.   

“I consider this a flagrant assault on my reputation and integrity and I am not going to take this lying low. Therefore, I am going to challenge this affront on my person and character in the court of law”, he said.

Imposition of Wike as Standard-Bearer: A Continuation of PDP’s War against Rivers State —APC

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 25 Second

The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has come down hard on the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State for producing controversial former Minister of State for Education, Chief Nyesome Ezebunwo Wike, as the party’s flag-bearer for the 2015 gubernatorial election. Rivers APC in a statement issued in Port Harcourt this morning based on the announcement of Wike as the winner of PDP’s gubernatorial primaries dismissed Wike’s candidature as an imposition and the process that led to it as a macabre dance.

Said the party in the statement signed by its State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya: “We have watched with amusement the macabre dance by PDP and its leadership which culminated in the imposition of Chief Nyesome Wike as the part’s flag-bearer for the 2015 gubernatorial election. To us, the emergence of the cantankerous and disreputable Chief Wike means an easy victory for us as he cannot in any way be compared with our candidate, the very reputable and visionary Dr. Dakuku Adol Peterside. The battle is now between the Rivers State people and the forces of darkness which the PDP represents.”

Continuing, Rivers APC said: “That Wike could emerge after the alarm unitedly raised by the 16 other PDP aspirants that were duped of their hard-earned money as the outcome of the process had already been determined by forces whose hatred for Rivers State is legendary speaks volumes about the extent to which the Presidency and the PDP national leadership are prepared to go to humiliate the good people of Rivers State. What is more, for President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP leadership to disregard the warning and pleas by Rivers State Elders such as Alabo Tonye Graham-Douglas, Chief A.K. Horsefall and Jonathan’s own ethnic Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark, on the dangers of Wike’s candidature portends to the peace, progress and unity of Rivers State simply demonstrates the level of disdain and scorn that the Presidency and PDP leadership have for Rivers State and her people.”

Rivers APC described Wike’s candidature as illogical and the height of injustice to the Riverine parts of the State. According to the party, “The imposition of Wike from the same Ikwerre tribe with outgoing Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, against the wishes and pleas of other parts of the state paints PDP as being insensitive to the yearnings of Rivers people for equity, justice and fair play in the distribution of power in the state. Rivers State is divided politically alongside Upland and Riverine areas. The Upland has been in power since 1999 till date through Dr. Peter Odilii and Governor Amaechi, governing Rivers State for a cumulative 16 years. Commonsense and justice dictate that after Governor Aamechi, the Riverine area should be given a sense of belonging by being allowed to govern the state. Thus, PDP, if it has any regard for the feelings of Rivers people, ought to have emulated our good example by producing a candidate from the Riverine but it has characteristically squandered this golden opportunity due to the Presidency’s desperation to foist Wike on Rivers State. Let us imagine – but God forbid! – that Wike wins the 2015 election. That means that the Upland would be in power for 24 years to the determinant of the Riverine area. To us, this is the highest level of inhumanity and injustice against our Riverine brothers and sisters.

 

“The choice of governorship candidates has once more left no doubt about the true colours of APC and PDP. It is now left to the good people of Rivers State to make their choice between darkness (PDP) and Light (APC) during next year’s governorship ballot. We trust them to make the right choice and vote for Dakuku Peterside and APC.”

 

Long Live APC!
Long Live Rivers State!!

Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze,

SSA Media and Public Affairs to the State Chairman, APC Rivers State
