He appealed to youths in Delta State to ensure they are not used by “failed politicians who are afraid of free and fair elections”.
Speaking on Friday, at the ongoing Ward-to-Ward campaigns at the JFK ground, Refinery Road and Ughoton, in Uvwie and Okpe Local government areas respectively, Omo-Agege said the 2023 general elections are profound, and would redefine the destiny of Nigeria and Delta state. He therefore warned that anyone that attempts to disrupt the election will be toying with the future of both the state and country.
“You are our children, we are one family; it does not matter which political party you belong. Come and join this people’s movement which has become a revolution for the liberation of Delta State from mis-governance of PDP. I specifically appeal to those youths in PDP, come and join us and move the state forward.”
He said Delta governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, hates the Urhobo people so much so that he thoughtlessly attempted to humiliate and retire former Delta Governor, Chief James Ibori, his benefactor, from politics and impose an “ incompetent Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, a man whose credentials are an issue of public debate, as a proxy for his third term agenda.”
He assured that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa will never be Vice President because the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will win the election , and be declared the next president of Nigeria.
He called for the election of Chief Ede Dafinone to replace him in the senate, stating that the candidate is a humble and intelligent man that would do Urhobo proud.
He also made case for the election of Hon. Henry Baro as member of the House of Representatives to represent Okpe, Sapele and Uvwie Federal Constituency. “I can vouch for him. When he gets there he’ll get the respect he deserves,” Omo-Agege said.
In Jeddo through to Ughoton, women and youths lined the route with brooms and other APC party insignia, chanting support slogans for Senator Omo-Agege.
At the rallies, more former movers and shakers of the PDP including, Chief Barr Victor Otomiewo, former Attorney general and Commissioner of Justice of Delta State; Hon Chief Efe Ofobruku, two time member of the Delta State House of Assembly; Chief Godstime Ematsemigbe, aka Omimi; Mrs Rose Onomavwe, former House of Assembly candidate of Action People’s Party, APP, and Aston Stephen Atemu, among others, decamped to the APC.
