‘Era of intimidation over in Delta politics’
• Ogboru, Omo-Agege task supporters on arms’ proliferation
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Great Ogboru, and the senator representing Delta Central in the National Assembly, Ovie Omo-Agege, yesterday said the era of voter intimidation was over in the state.
Speaking at a rally in Otu-Jeremi, headquarters of Ughelli South Local Council, the gubernatorial and senatorial flagbearers urged their supporters to go about their political activities without fear of attacks. Omo-Agege urged APC faithful to always provide security agents with information relating to proliferation of arms in their localities for immediate mopping and arrest of the masterminds.
The pair pleaded with Deltans to vote out of office the “inefficient government” of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for meaningful development and improvement of their living standards, arguing that there was nothing on ground to show for the 20 years of PDP’s stewardship in the state. Ogboru promised to introduce free education at the primary and secondary levels due largely to the fact that the sector was the bedrock of development in any society.
He advised those who had allegedly sold their permanent voter cards (PVCs) for N15,000 to retrieve the facilities and reject “those who underdeveloped the state in the last 20 years.
The gubernatorial hopeful said he was mandated by President Muhammadu Buhari and the national chairman of the APC, Adams of Oshiomhole, to present the party’s flag to the various candidates vying for elective offices in the state.He therefore handed over the party’s flag to Reverend Francis Waive as standard-bearer for Ughelli/Udu Federal Constituency among others. Ogboru also welcomed 45 persons from the PDP, enjoining them to work for the success of the party. He assured them that “everybody will enjoy when the party takes over Delta State Government House, Asaba.”
