It would not be a misnomer to say that when passion is knitted into leadership, unimaginable developments speak in their numbers. Rep. Sam Onuigbo has demonstrated such rare quality. Suffice it to say here that a leader’s popularity should not be a yardstick for the election of a politician, but antecedents and track records of exemplary leadership and quality representation while in a public office, should be.
