The reputation of integrity earned by Chief Hilary Edime Amodu, the Senatorial Candidate of the Africa Democratic Party (ADC) for Kogi East in the 2023 Election, has over the years been the vehicle that made him to stand before kings and exempted him from the menacing claws of mean men.
His deposits (in surplus)in the bank of integrity has been his lifeline, his words are always his bond. This rare and exemplary trait has stood him towering far above others that are bereft and deficient of this all important trait, in the race for the same office.
“Integrity deficit has led to the fall of hitherto great leaders. Many leaders cannot be trusted whose words are not their bond, In the United States, Richard Nixon’s pathological lies on the job ended with his resignation. Dubbed the Watergate scandal, Nixon supposedly oversaw a break-in into the Democratic National Committee offices.
Later, evidence showed his involvement.
Nixon’s story reveals that no matter how educated, talented, rich or cool a leader is, or believes he is, how he treats people ultimately tells how enduring he will last as a leader.
Some leaders treat their constituents as pawns on a chess board. In this regard, Chief Hilary Edime Amodu’s reputation of integrity has contributed in no mean measure to the trust he has earned from the people of Kogi East.
Omeyi Rekiya, a resident of Ofabo who has dealt closely with Amodu for over 20 years says he keeps to his promises. ‘He says what he can do and calls a spade by its name. He is not in the category of those who say something and you won’t see them again. Just yesterday, he sent his regular promised contribution of scholarship for my daughter ‘s Education… Amodu is an honest man…’
Taking Chief Hilary Edime Amodu’s reputational capital into cognizance, Kogi East people have reasons to throw their weight behind him in 2023- in the belief that Amodu would use integrity as an asset, to legislate in favour, influence, attract developmental projects into, impact and build a virile, indivisible, and prosperous Kogi East, as Senator of the District…”
Kogi East Kpibe! Igala Kpibe!! Arise and Shine
