Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and George Washington are most often listed as the three highest-rated and most loved leaders among historians.
Today, more leaders loved by their people continue to spring up, leaders like Chief Willie Obiano, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo and most recently discovered today, Dr. Onyeka Ibezim.
Amidst pomp and pageantry, the people of Awka South thronged in mass to welcome their worthy son, a great man of character and dignity, Dr. Onyeka Ibezim.
The reception was in honour of his recent nomination as the running mate to erudite Prof. Cee Cee Soludo, the APGA gubernatorial candidate for the Nov. 6 Governorship election in Anambra State.
The reception started right from the Akanu Ibiam International Airport Enugu, where the leaders of the party in the local government, following hours of flight delay, waited for several hours for the arrival of “His Excellency”, Dr. Onyeka Ibezim.
Upon his return to Awka, he met a gathering of who is who in the Awka South Political Circle, at Trig Point Hotel Nibo, thereafter, the train landed at Mbaukwu his home town where he was given a carnival-like reception by over 2000 residents of the town who had waited for over 7 hours for his return.
The biblical saying that when the righteous is on the throne the people rejoice was clearly manifested at Awka South today.
INDEED, Dr. IBEZIM IS A MAN LOVED BY HIS PEOPLE!!!
