Isoko APC leaders express confidence in Omo-Agege, Erue
All Progressives Congress (APC) ward leaders from Isoko North and South, Delta State, have passed a vote of confidence in Senator Ovie Omo-Agege and the state APC chairman, Jones Erue.
At their emergency meeting in Oleh at the weekend, the leaders said the populist leadership of the duo could transform more lives at the grassroots.
A communiqué signed by the secretary of Isoko Political Ward Leaders Forum, Irorobona Ozomaro, on behalf of APC ward leaders, warned that “some individuals sponsoring incitements to cause frictions between Isoko and Urhobo people and to demean the two political leaders must stop their anti-people agenda or get prepared to face populist wrath.”
He added: “The leaders also frowned at the height of disrespect to constituted authority by those behind this public shame who ought to rally around the state chairman of the APC, who doubles as the Isoko APC political leader, to negotiate the best political outcome for Isoko people. Rather, they choose to publicly ridicule the very leader who ought to be protected by every right-thinking Isoko son and daughter.”
According to the ward leaders, while Omo-Agege and Erue are jointly working hard to reposition Isoko politically to be at par with other ethnic groups in the state in terms of federal appointments, few unpopular individuals who once led futile bids against them are desperately seeking to recruit anarchists to join them in a needless battle that can only yield negative dividends for the state and the Niger Delta region.
