The Founding President of Radiant Foundation for Women Empowerment, Bishop Glory Umerah has confirmed her intentions as the deputy governorship candidate for the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), which is a pure desire to improve the wellbeing of women, youths and the girl-child in the state.
The Bishop made it known via her publicist’s (Ediale Kingsley) page on Monday, September 12, 2022.
“Dear Deltans, it’s almost a no-brainer to understand my decision to use a bigger platform towards meeting my desire for providing solutions and care to humanity. People who know me can attest that this race is not new. The desire to do my best to serve humanity as always been a part of my life. The conviction for me is seemless. Just as the goal is sacrosanct. I have been blessed with a call to serve and minister to women, youths and the girl-child. This call has defined my existence and I believe with this great party and our Governorship Candidate. The dream and opportunity will meet the needs of my Delta people,” she said.
“I see it as the right channel to apply and execute all the good programs designed to uplift our mothers, sisters, daughters and young persons ,” she added
“I didn’t make this decision in blindness or in the ignorance of the huge responsibility that comes with the call. I am aware and prepare to work the work and walk the walk. With fearless and tireless momentum. It is time to serve.”
Her party has a clear cut plan for the state which is organised as The POWER agenda: P — for Productivity through efficient attraction of Investments in the Power, Oil and Gas sectors to catalyse our Industrial take-off and provision of Electricity for domestic use. O — for Order, Security, efficient Justice Delivery, Equitable Allocation of Government Resources using modern management tools and data to tackle Environmental and Health emergencies. W — for Wealth creation without Gender Bias to be implemented in a ratio of 70:30 in favour of the youth, i.e our young men and women over our aging male population, to drive our 24/7 productive economy. A reward system for excellence shall be established. E — for Education’s budgetary allocation of minimum of 30% to produce the workforce for the Delta Digital Economy that will make us emerge as the “digital factory” for the Nigeria DIGITAL FOUNDATION providing 21st-century technology and telecom infrastructure and services to Africa and the world. And lastly, R — will focus on Reengineering of our Roads, Rail, Ports and other world class infrastructure that will rival developed countries as we pursue affordable Housing, Urban Renewal and Rural Penetration to create clean and blue cities for our people, even as we design a 50 years Marshall Plan of Action for future Generations to develop on.
