A Niger Delta youth group, Niger Delta Democrats, NDD, is stepping up mobilisation of support for Dr. Ngozi Olejeme’s governorship ambition in the 2015 governorship election in Delta State.
The group, in a statement by its president, Furo Ozumo and secretary, Ken Oyakemeagbegha, after a meeting in Warri, Delta State, said she was the most suitable candidate among all the contenders as she had the requisite political and academic wherewithal to govern the state.
It said that in the spirit of equity, justice and fairness, Delta North should produce the next governor as the central and south senatorial districts had produced governors for the state.
The group said Delta State should be governed by persons with enviable track records of public service, such as like Olejeme who was currently a director and member of several federal government agencies and boards which she effectively managed.
NDD observed that her youths and women empowerment programmes had brought joy and restored the hopes of many families which it described as a novelty in the history of Delta State.
