The Dein of Agbor kingdom, Dein Keagborekuzi 1, has said that the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege who is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, will make an amazing governor if given the chance to serve.

The first-class traditional monarch made the remark on Friday, December 2, when Senator Omo-Agege and members of his campaign train visited the king in his palace at Agbor.

Responding to a brief speech by Senator Omo-Agege on the reasons for the visit, the Agbor monarch described the APC governorship candidate as a shining light.

“You are a shining light in Delta State, and you have been able to shine in Abuja. Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and the Speaker, Sheriff Oborevwori are your friends. What we want is the best for the State and the nation, and I am sure and know that you will do an amazing job as governor of Delta State.”

Earlier, Senator Omo-Agege had told the monarch that a lot had gone wrong in Delta State and he was leading a revolution to usher in a new state.

He promised to upgrade the University of Delta to its proper status, other than the glorified College of Education it has been reduced to.

The Delta State APC chairman, Elder Omeni Sobotie, at the Ika South APC campaign rallies, said the “wickedness brought on the people of Ika” by the present administration for the past seven and a half years will come to an end when Senator Omo-Agege is elected governor.

Also speaking, the Ika South APC Chairman, Hon. Hillary Fada Igbude, lamented that Governor Okowa left only the faculty of education in the University of Delta, Agbor, and took all other faculties to the Owa-Alero campus.

“Eight years of Okowa is eight years of suffering for the Ika people. Okowa and the PDP have treated us as conquered people, and we are going to pay him back in his own coins,” he said.
