Igbuya’s leadership qualities extolled
THE member representing Ethiope East Constituency in Delta State House of Assembly, Evance Ivwurie, has lauded the leadership qualities of the House’s Speaker, Rt. Hon. Monday Igbuya, describing him as “an inspiring and magnetic political figure”.
In a statement yesterday in Asaba, Ivwurie, a Labour Party (LP) member, while admitting his relationship with Igbuya as ‘beautiful,’ added: “I will describe Igbuya as a democrat in our hallowed chamber and in leadership. He is a team player. He is a very energetic, hard-working, disciplined, committed and very effective lawmaker. Rather than deny any member of his or her right, he fights for and protects the rights of every member daily.
“My relationship with Speaker Igbuya as someone elected from a different political party is bipartisan, friendly, mutually respectable and cordial. Mr. Speaker finds common ground through compromise in legislation with opposing political parties. He does not adhere only to his political party interest. He does not advance his own political party agenda unduly in the exercise of his duty as Speaker at the expense of the other political parties because of conflicting ideologies.”
In the release titled: “My Perspectives on Mister Speaker,” the LP legislator listed patience and persistence as two most useful character traits of the state’s number three citizen.
