An independent survey has placed the chairman of Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) Dr. Ngozi Olejeme ahead of other aspirants in the 2015 Governorship election.
Although Dr. Olejeme is yet to formally declare her intention to run, the poll saw Olejeme emerging first choice in 24 out of the 25 local government areas in Delta State.
According to a survey conducted by Delta based research group, The Political Communicators, the respondents said they preferred to have Olejeme as governor in 2015 because of her track record in service.
Some of the reasons adduced by the respondents included the need for honest and trustworthy leadership, gender change, ability to delegate, good communication skills, sense of humour, self-confidence, connections, commitment to set goals, positive attitude, creativity, natural intuition and ability to inspire as well as Olejeme’s track record as an achiever.
“We need someone with experience. We need someone who has built a business, managed a budget and people and has been successful in negotiations.
We want a governor who believes in Delta State and her people. We need someone who has moral character, a reputation for honesty, integrity and fidelity.
One of the most important qualities of a good leader is for you to lead by example, to be a role model, to be the kind of person that everyone else looks up to and wants to be like. Olejeme will represent our interests” many of the respondents said.
