The Deputy Speaker of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, said on Sunday that the reign of the ruling People’s Democratic Party, the PDP in Delta State would end in 2023.
Omo-Agege, who testified while receiving more than 5,000 PDP peasants at the All Progressives Congress, APC in Oviri-Ogor and Ughelli Urban, Ughelli North State Local Government Area, said that everything has an expiration date.
Insisting that the deadline for the PDP in the state is already very close, he said; “Although 2023 is still far off, Omo-Agege is coming. What we are going to use his eyes to see, you will not believe. APC already won the 2023 elections, PDP and Okowa know it. “
The Vice President of the Senate who was greeted by a gigantic crowd said; “Young people and women are the owners of the party and the owners of the people and not the leaders. They are the ones who can make or ruin a town. I say this so as not to undermine our leaders.
Omo-Agege, joined by the party’s outgoing state chairman Prophet Jones Erue, incoming state chairman Engr Omene Sobotie, incoming Delta Central chairman, Chief Paulinus Akpeki, APC chairman in local government of Ughelli North, Mr. Obakpororo Onoabeje, Mr. Roland Oyibo, Chief John Omoyibo, among other party leaders to greet the decampees, assured them that they would be treated equally with other party members.
He said, “I welcome you all to this party and I promise you will enjoy all the privileges that others enjoy. Whether you are new or old, they are all the same. In this party we have no affiliates or founders and that is what separates me from other leaders. They will say this and this just joined the party yesterday, but I don’t believe in that, whether it’s yesterday or today, you are all one. “
Speaking earlier in the Oviri-Ogor city council, the Oviri-Ogor community president general, Chief Monday Otobrise, who led the decampees in the city, said that they liked Senator Ovie Omo-Agege because of their accessibility, and added that for the first time they were having a representative who is always in contact with them.
Otobrise said; “Omo-Agege gave us new transformers, streetlights, renovated our schools, empowered us, and all of this he did as a member of the opposition party. The things that our party, the party we work for, the party that we deliver cannot do for us, he has done for us. We have seen that he has the light and we have decided to follow him ”.
Also speaking on behalf of the young peasants, Oviri-Ogor Community Youth President Voke Onogure said the Senate Vice President has done well.
At Ughelli Urban, Mr. David Okorare, speaking on behalf of the decampees, spoke along the same lines, adding that they were proud of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege’s leadership style.
Okorare said his decision to ditch his old political party stemmed from the deliberate representation and leadership of Senate Vice President Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
He commended Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for his human capacity and infrastructure development effort in the Delta Central Senate District, adding that the Senate Vice President has empowered many people and influenced many people-oriented projects in the area.
