Coalition moves to make Olejeme governor

2 September 2014
A coalition of forces under the aegis of Delta Progressive Movement (DPM) has urged Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and leaders of major political parties to base their choice of the next governor of the state on the core attributes of competence, integrity, courage, initiative and focus.
In a meeting held on Sunday being the 31 of August 2014 in Owa-Oyibu, the headquarters of Ika North East Local Government Area to discuss the political future of the state, the zoning arrangement and to assess the physical, social and institutional infrastructural provisions in the state, the group vowed to put stop to square pegs in round holes in leadership positions in the state.
The group also called for gender change at the governorship level.
It extolled the uncommon virtues of Olejeme, describing her as pragmatic and winsome.
“Olejeme is suitable for the governorship job. She has devoted her life to humanitarian and philanthropic services. She has provided employment opportunities for the people, especially the youths. She has been one of the most supportive and committed leaders of the PDP in the state”.
Spokesperson of the movement, Mrs. Josephine Nkenchor said Olejeme would address the near absence of infrastructures in some parts of the state, galvanize the people to self-development, energize the economy and also raise the standard of living of the people through adequate inter-village communication such as good road network, electricity, pipe-borne water, recreational facilities, etc.
“Olejeme will increase the material wealth of the people, establish capacity-building institutions, increase rural output, create employment opportunities and root out cases of poverty, diseases and ignorance”.
The groups also said Olejeme would stimulate rural industries and show the necessary leadership by matching words with action through evolving workable development approaches, proper co-ordination and funding.
“Olejeme has strategies to banish unemployment and insecurity. Her government will bring about sustainable development and progress” the group said.
Over 2,000 members across the 25 local government councils stormed the venue in representative capacity
