Indigenes of Anambra State resident in the United States have endorsed the 2015 candidature of Dr. Kodilichukwu Okelekwe to represent the Central senatorial district in the National Assembly.

The group, in a statement signed yesterday by Prof Ben Nna Okoye of Georgia, USA, said that with the protracted problems facing Anambra Central as a whole, they need now more than ever, a disciplined, focused, pragmatic, logical, creative, organised, problem-solver as  senator.

According to Okoye, Okelekwe is candidate who has a record of  cohesiveness toward creative solutions to difficult problems, who has shown admirable courage, passionate realism and exudes an infectious optimism.

Independent, experienced and ready to serve, he noted,  Okelekwe is a skilled competent leader who is widely admired for his civility, diligence and political acuity that connects well with electrifying ambience.

He said: “The caveat is that he is not a candidate of the status quo. He has demonstrated that he possesses the temperament and indispensable qualities we need to regain a disciplined approach to both raising the bar of our development program, and creatively meeting the attendant strategic implications as we continue to accelerate forward.
“He brings a substantial record of service, integrity and leadership. His knowledge of multimillion-dollar budgets and keen business experience from running his own flourishing business as Chief Executive gives him an insight in managing a budget and strategic leadership”.

“He understands how to build rapport, consensus, create efficiencies, make prudent decisions and carefully consider divergent viewpoints in cognisance that Anambra earned its national prominence for its culture of educational excellence, industriousness and perseverance,” he added.

Okoye said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chieftain understands the permutation formula imperative for Anambra Central to champion excellence in education, agriculture, economic development, and employment opportunities while working in tandem with corporate Nigeria, International companies, small businesses and individual entrepreneurs to recapture their trust in Anambra Central through aggressive security fortification, eradication of corruption and kidnapping, as well as enthroning transparency confidence and efficacy.

He said “there is another practical rumination that puts him ahead of his competitors: We know him. We know his disposition. He has lived a very philanthropic life, awarding many scholarships to destitute Anambra Central indigenes”.

“We know the sorts of collaborative decision he makes when he is called on to balance his duties versus what might be political expediency. He has a record of accomplishments that we can judge. And on the balance, what we know about him is mellifluous.”
