A governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Ngozi Olejeme, Friday, 7th November, 2014, said she would focus on education, agriculture, health and building of infrastructure if voted into power as the next Governor of Delta State..
“I will create more jobs, ensure budget surplus, provide a transparent and interactive government, promote employment-friendly policies and also pay contractors,” Olejeme said.
Speaking with journalists shortly after submitting her expression of interest and nomination forms to the PDP National Organizing Secretary, Alhaji Abubakar Mustapha, in Abuja on Friday, 7th November, 2014, Olejeme said she is running for governorship seat so she can make Delta State a place where businesses can innovate with less red tape, where there are good jobs and economic growth for families and an excellent public education for children.
“Deltans need affordable health care” she said.
Olejeme who stormed the party’s national secretariat with her loyalists to support her expression of interest and nomination forms to contest the Delta State governorship election promised to encourage potential businesses by reviewing the current regulatory environment and business taxes.
She also identified service to the people as the driving force to her ambition to contest the Delta State governorship seat.
“This is a divine mandate. I am not in the race for material things. I have traveled across the state and spoken to thousands of Deltans about the future of the state. I’m the best for Delta State. I have the capacity and intellect to deliver and to move Delta State to greater height- from the height we are presently and to build an El Dorado for our people”.
