Browsing: Senator Ovie Omo-Agege

The Urhobo people must realize that Omo-Agege has never worked for their interest. It has always been about what he stands to gain. He is a trader and dealer who will trade Urhobo away at the slightest opportunity. Did he not declare war in Orogun during the 2007 election working against Urhobo’s interest just because he was promised a big office? Did he not hijack over fifty projects meant for his own Orogun clan and collected the money without executing the projects? Did he not work for the reduction of the number of electoral wards in Urhoboland just to satisfy his narrow and personal interest? Omo-Agege worked very hard to destroy the Urhobo Progress Union (UPU) after the death of Chief Felix Ibru. The crises that engulfed the UPU from 2013 leading to the problems involving Chief Joe Omene were triggered by Omo-Agege’s schemes to have the UPU under his control.

The defectors, including former legislators, ex-commissioners, local government chairmen and Board members which attracted thousands of their supporters to a colourful ceremony held at St George’s College ground in Obinoba community in Delta North senatorial district, pledged to deliver APC candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as the next governor of the state during the March 11, 2023 gubernatorial poll.

This conclusion was contained in a press release by Dr. Ifeanyi Osuoza, Deputy Director, Media, and Publicity Committee, Delta State PDP Campaign Council while responding to a proposition made by the APC Delta Gubernatorial Candidate, who had categorically stated, during a campaign rally at Owa-Ekei, in Ika North East Local Government Area of the state, that he would “work with ‘yahoo’ boys”, when elected Governor of the State.

Osanebi’s nomination is contained in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, signed by  Ima Niboro, Director, Communications and Media Strategy, Delta APC Gubernatorial Campaign Organisation.
