Onah said: " How best do we describe a servant-leader that is ordained by God, elected by his people and affirmed by the judiciary? What more can be said of a fighter for common interest, and a brave leader that has succeeded in dispelling the myth that it is a taboo for an Nkanu man to go to senate more than once!
"Senator Gilbert Nnaji is arguably among the most debatable and talked-about politicians. There have been great political leaders of this generation but none has fought the magnitude of fierce battles laced with high-level conspiracies as he did, and yet come out victorious.
"When a man stands out like this, then there is something outstanding about him. It is not definitely because of his opulence or influential background but inherent desire to positively touch lives and leave pleasant legacies.
"Senator Gilbert Nnaji has the innate capacity to weather every storm principally due to his abundant faith in God and the democratic supremacy of the people. He believes that in governance, man is the main essence while service is the ultimate motivation.
"On his inauguration in 2011, Senator Gilbert Nnaji maintains that 'it is my ambition to be remembered as a servant-leader whose politics is based on the fear of God and love for humanity. And also, while I remain here at the moment as a Senator, my mission is to remain an active participant in the overall continued processes of improving my constituency and making Nigeria truly great by God’s grace', Comrade Onah stated.
