Delta State politicians who are desirous of becoming elected or appointed officials have been told to strive to embody the humility, idealism, pragmatism, visionary leadership, selflessness and hard work of Dr. Ngozi Olejeme in their political career.
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 a 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.
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.”
