Following the recent attack on the personality of Sir Monday Onyeme, the Running mate and Deputy Governorship candidate of the PDP in Delta State by one notorious blackmailer popularly known as Kpokpogiri, it has become pertinent to advise members of the public to ignore him as responding to his libelous article will amount to waste of precious time.

While I believe in the scripture that says, whatever a man sows, he will reap; Kpokpogiri will no doubt begin reaping from his many sins in no time except he repents.

Sir Monday Onyeme, a renown scholar of international repute earned a Masters Degree in the UK and returned back to Nigeria after bagging the professional ICAN, to explore both his knowledge and experience in career development and nation building.

Today will not be for reeling out Sir Monday Onyeme’s academic and professional profile, but a day to emphasise that as the Running mate to the Delta State PDP Gubernatorial candidate, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori; Deltans particularly Ndokwa people are excited about his nomination and are proud to have a detribalised Deputy Governor nominee run the PDP’S gubernatorial joint ticket with Rt. Hon. Sheriff.

Sir Monday Onyeme belongs to the class of first, as he is the first Ndokwa man to become a Bursar in a national institution, the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), the first Ndokwa man to be appointed the Chairman Delta State Revenue Services (DSIRS) and now the first Ndokwa politician to be nominated as Deputy Governor in the platform of the PDP since 1999.

The choice of Sir Monday John Onyeme meets the popular expectations of majority of Ndokwa people standing on the vintage point of being the Founder and Sponsor of the largest political network in Delta State having membership from across Delta North comprising Ndokwa/Ukwuani Federal Constituency, Ika Federal Constituency and Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency.

As the leader of the ODOZIANI SUPPORT GROUP( OSG) and one of the most renowned investors in people beyond the Ndokwa ethnic group, Sir Onyeme stands a better advantage in the PDP to win the 2023 general elections landslide.

Sir Onyeme and his political followership and admirers are ready to transverse the nooks and crannies of Delta State to canvass support both for his joint ticket with Sheriff and for the Atiku/Okowa Presidential ticket.

The emergence of Sir Onyeme did not come without resistance from competing political forces who may be fuelling and sponsoring such libels from a known blackmailer, Kpokpogori, but Sir Onyeme is focused and is determined not to be distracted or have detractors derail him from important engagements in issues that pertain to good governance.

It is important I stress that even though some of his Ndokwa brothers aspired for the number two (2) spot, his unveiling did not break the bond and cooperation he enjoys with political leaders across board; thus his nomination at the National Headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Nigeria in Abuja was an act of God not man.

Sir Monday Onyeme has demonstrated capacity in political leadership having fulfilled his assignment in the civil service where he retired as Bursar at NOUN. Nothing could be more meritorious in public service than leaving indelible footprints in your roles in any given institution you have served.

Sir Onyeme is a financial member of the PDP, whose mobilisation strategy brought life to the Ndokwa Chapter of the PDP. His Political Network, the Ndokwa Core Group hosts the best from Ndokwa political space.

His strategy and effective human relations have endeared members of the opposition to him, thereby inspiring those who left the party over the past years to return back to the PDP.

Since joining the Delta State politics, Sir Onyeme could be described as someone who through his interpersonal relationships has dismantled the opposition forces in Ndokwa nation. This itself gives the PDP political advantage in Ndokwa nation and beyond.

In 2015, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa appointed him as Executive Chairman, Delta State Internal Revenue Services in his good pleasure and till date he has proven loyalty, built confidence and trust relating and working closely with the Governor who deemed him fit to hold such public trust.

Sir Monday Onyeme is a super impactful figure in Ndokwa politics and beyond, and has touched the lives of both young and old, the rich and the poor by his acts of philanthropy.

In advancing the sustainable development goals of promoting quality education, Sir Onyeme has through the MONDAY ONYEME FOUNDATION offered annual scholarships to Ndokwa students touching every Federal ward and relatively every community in Ndokwa nation. About a decade so far, Sir Onyeme’s Foundation has been involved in distribution of learning and teaching aids, including textbooks, workbooks, notebooks and practical guides to elementary science to both primary and secondary schools in Ndokwa land.

Through the Odoziani Support Group for Okowa, Sir Monday Onyeme has become a household name in the PDP in Ndokwa nation and Delta State, because the achievements of the Odoziani Political Network which cuts across every ward in Ndokwa nation and with memberships in Ika and Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituencies speak volume.

When someone describes Sir Monday Onyeme’s lifestyle, it should be that the man Onyeme runs an open door politics, where no formal protocol is required to access him.

Sir Monday Onyeme is a seasoned politician and I affirm that his current elevation to the position of Deputy Governor nominee puts the PDP in huge advantage against the opposition. Onyeme’s political sagacity shall assert the PDP in Delta State during and after the general elections in 2023.

This Okowa’s era politician is best suitable to continue with the Okowa’s legacies in taking the #StrongerDelta agenda extramile.

As the General elections is fast approaching, we must adopt the best means to encourage eligible voters to participate in the electoral process that should rescue Nigeria from economic woes the ruling APC has plunged us into.

In Ndokwa nation, Sir Onyeme and other political stakeholders of the PDP have resolved to deliver the Sherrif/Monday ticket 100%, thus we should bear in mind that the choice of Sir Monday Onyeme as the PDP’s Governorship running mate gives Ndokwa ethnic group the opportunity of collaboration towards closing the developmental gaps we attribute to marginalisation or ethnic discrimination.

With Sir Monday Onyeme representing the Ndokwa mandate in the general election, we must rally round the Sherrif/Monday ticket to secure landmark victory for the PDP come February, 2023 General elections and we must note that PDP’S landslide victory in the forthcoming election means MORE developments in Delta State, MORE developments in Ndokwa nation, MORE scholarships for Ndokwa students and MORE employments and empowerment for Ndokwa/Ukwuani people.
