•Asks Ndokwa nation to deny Gov Okowa a ‘third term’ through Oborevwori

Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has, campaign stop after campaign stop, canvassed votes for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and all candidates of the party contesting the 2023 general elections in Delta State.

At different campaign rally venues visited by the Delta APC campaign train, on Monday, December 5, Omo-Agege underscored the benefits of voting for Tinubu as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The campaign train had stops at Abbi, Kwale, and Utagba-Uno, all in Ndokwa West Local Government Area of the oil-rich state.

In making a case for Tinubu, Omo-Agege said the APC presidential candidate is a son-in-law of Delta State, since his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, is of Itsekiri descent.

He said Delta State stood to benefit tremendously from a Tinubu presidency, both in terms of infrastructure and human capital development.

He urged the people of Ndokwa West to deny Governor Ifeanyi Okowa “a third term by proxy,” because a vote for PDP’s Sheriff Oborevwori is a vote for what he described as “Okowa’s misgovernance”.

Omo-Agege lamented that the PDP was not leaving a single legacy project in the whole of Ndokwa nation, even as an oil producing area.

“But don’t worry, in the next two months we will tell Okowa and his PDP bye-bye with our votes. We need a new leadership that will address the issues of Ndokwa nation,” he said.

“For the past seven-and-a-half years there is no sign of prosperity in Ndokwa land and yet the outgoing governor, Okowa, was elected to power on the platform and guise of protecting the interest of the Ndokwa nation.

“All the wickedness of Okowa and PDP will be recompensed during the election and I urge you to reject PDP and it’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. You must also reject Oborevwori as governor. Vote Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president, and myself Ovie Omo-Agege as governor.”

He made a strong case for Senator Peter Nwaoboshi to be re-elected to the senate, saying when elected, Nwaoboshi would be a ranking senator who would be qualified to become the president of the Senate in 2023.

Omo-Agege warned against any plan or attempt to disrupt the elections on Election Day, saying: “If you disrupt the elections the security agencies will catch you and lock you up in a cell for a very long time. So, please, don’t disrupt the elections.”

Cheering crowds welcomed Omo-Agege and the campaign train to the rally grounds, where over 100 former members of the PDP, led by Tiny Okpu, decamped to the APC and were received by the party’s state chairman, Elder Omeni Sobotie.

Sobotie said the decampees were, in biblical parlance, “once blind but now can see.”

He said for every struggle there is a leader, “and today, we have a Joshua who will take us to the Promised Land in the person of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.”
