Ezenwa’s submissions were later echoed by Oginni, who also described the former as a young, diligent, and serious-minded politician, who, since he joined the party had helped in raising its profile tremendously.

Aniebonam also listed for Ajadi, what he described as three essentials of ascendency to power, adding that possession of one or two was not enough, but the availability of all.
