Scare tactics don’t dampen Delta aspirant's hopes

03 November 2014, 08:57Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Delta State governorship aspirant, Dr Ngozi Olejeme, is undeterred by alleged attempts on her life in her quest to land the top political office in the Delta State.

“They bombed my house as a way of scaring me from the governorship race,” an ebullient Olejeme, of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP),  said.

She made a pledge to prospective voters.

“I’m going to use the resources to develop Delta State. I’ll also bring smiles to the faces of the people and food to their tables.”

She called on Deltans at home and abroad to give her the necessary support to enable her succeed.

“I’m in the governorship race to help the good people of Delta State. Talk to your delegates to vote for God’s choice and you’ll definitely see prosperity in the state.”

She spoke highly of women.

“Women are good managers. They are not greedy. God has blessed me so much. I have never held any position in the state. I have not done any contract in this state. I am not looking for money. God gave me positions at the federal level. I went out to bring good things to the people of Delta State. I have provided a lot for widows and unemployed persons in the state. I also paid tuition fees for Deltans,” she added.

“You shall have a say in the government of the day. Anything meant for your local government shall be released. It is no longer business as usual.”
