"I have done what the nation wants me to do by coming down. I have submitted my old voter's card. This will bring me victory in 2015," she said.
On her chances of becoming the next governor of the state, Olejeme said they were very bright.
"By the grace of God, I will be the next governor of Delta State. This is the era of women. God said women must rule in 2015."
Olejeme said she had acquired enough political structures to enable her become the next governor of Delta State.
On the issue of patriarchy in the country's politics, Olejeme said: "I am not afraid of the number of men in the governorship race. Women are getting extremely important and much more aware and active across the whole of Delta State. Their vote will count, my vote will count as well as the vote of other Deltans," she declared.
