Jude Ejiogu: The Symbol Of Administrative Fairness By Ikenna Onuoha
As the day begins to unfold, successful individuals in various fields of human endeavours start to manifest. One seems to be persistently on my mind whenever I attempt to feature a flourishing Nigerian, who has made considerable impact in community building.
In this scenario, one whose morals are symbolic of a saint with compassionate, resourceful and administrative fairness cannot be over emphasized. This person’s unparalleled sense of humour does not deter his bold and daring qualities like the Arm Forces.
A vivacious man with vast experience in banking, Sir Jude Ejiogu, popularly called by His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha (OON) as “The Engine Room” of the Imo State Government is a type of human genus every Imolites regard as well outfitted.
No wonder William Blake says in his proverbs of Hell that “You never know what enough is, until you know what more than enough is”, Sir Jude Ejiogu, Chief of Staff and Commissioner for Special Duties, Imo State is indeed a replica of the quote.
A gregarious and competent servant-leader, it is noteworthy that little did Imo people know Sir Jude Ejiogu’s illuminating traits than Governor Okorocha identified leadership qualities inherent in him, hence His Excellency continues to elevate him from one sensitive position to the other with a view to bringing efficient sanity and result-oriented programmes in any portfolio he is entrusted with through his technical know-how.
From Special Adviser on Internally General Revenue to Chairman Board of Internal Revenue, Local Government Service Commission as well as his current positions, Sir Jude Ejiogu has been the source of inspiration, motivation and moral fiber to aspiring young leaders in the state and beyond.
As a dependable leader, he has taken far-reaching decisions and made remarkable achievements, which marveled his colleagues in government thereby making him the envy of all. A very disciplined and conscientious boss, so courageous in pursuing whatever cause he believes in with vigor and panache. A Chief of Staff with immense humility, modesty and charisma, Sir Jude Ejiogu has been fervent about the war against graft; this is why his past records in the banking industry remain unsoiled and corruption free in all ramifications.
One quality that even sworn enemies of Sir Ejiogu is his sincerity, elegance and gentility. A man that talk less but does abundantly great, no wonder his friends call him, “FAVOUR INCARNATE” symbolizing his easy ability to make unfeasibility to be feasible in a short time. He has contributed immeasurably to the bid to demystify governance. He goes about freely unlike other famous individuals in the society and sometimes, seen on the queue at the airport, rallies and other public places taking his turn to be attended to. What a due process servant-leader!
On the roads, he would rather instruct his driver(s) to park away in order to allow furious and reckless drivers to zoom off the highway before he continues his patriotic journey.
In appreciation for his excellence, Imo people exhibited high level of support and encouragement to him as exemplified by the grand civic reception in his honour organized by the entire people of the state cum-Owerri zone at the City School where His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha (OON) described him as a hard-worker, motivator and stabilizer. What a description!!!
The civic reception acknowledged that Sir Jude Ejiogu’s appointment brought in tolerance, honesty, self-sacrifice, patriotism and love rising above all modes of dissection. It is heartwarming that he has demonstrated outstanding capacity to build bridges of unity and understanding amongst the three zones of the state.
In capacity building, he has made private and official contacts to aid youths and women empowerment through skill acquisition, scholarships and other donations devoid of discrimination in line with the vision of the rescue mission administration of Governor Rochas Okorocha.
The bridge builder as he is fondly called, Sir Jude Ejiogu has given immense and dogged support to the Commander of Free Education in Imo State, His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Okorocha in ensuring the completion of all projects embarked upon by his administration. One thing every aspiring leader should be happy to gain in life is to acquire the same lenience and civilized quality of Sir Jude Ejiogu in dealing with issues conscientiously especially, when greedy expired politicians envious of his rising profile attack him on the pages of newspapers with a view to scoring cheap political relevance.
However, Sir Jude Ejiogu’s appointments so far is an administrative fairness to all component units in the state in line with the precept of the rescue mission ideology of sustaining and revamping government’s institutions with professional experience garnered.
Sir Ejiogu is the voice of the voiceless, gift to mankind and exceptional human being worthy of adoring. His unquantifiable track records in public service give ample concern to individuals bedeviled with self aggrandizements. He is a leader to be reckoned with. Imo is indeed better!
