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.
