Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial district, Obaisi Ovie Omo-Agege, has advised the Urhobo to ensure they reelect President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019.
According to him, the reelection of Buhari will serve the best interest of the Urhobo nation.
The lawmaker made the appeal, weekend, at Ughelli, Otu-Jeremi and Otor-Udu, in Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu council areas of the state respectively during a consultative visit to leaders, elders, ward and local council executives of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for his reelection bid.
Accompanied by Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru and other leaders of the party and received at every meeting point by a mammoth crowd, Omo-Agege posited that the visible change being witnessed in parts of the state, were as a result of the efforts of the presidency.
He stated that if the president could do so much in less than three years in office, it would be in the interest of the Urhobo nation to ensure that he is reelected for a second term in office to attract more infrastructural development to Delta central and Delta State at large.
Speaking on the impasse rocking the Delta state chapter of the APC, he hinted that the crisis is pretty much resolved, stating that “the battle has been fought, lost, won and there is no victor and there is no vanquished.
“We didn’t go into that fight to deprive people of their right to control the party, but went into it to make sure that we took control of the party from those who would otherwise commercialize the party because we do not want a monarch or an emperor in this party.”
Senator Omo-Agege explained that himself and others engaged in the battle for the soul of Delta APC to take control of the party from those who would commercialise the party saying, “we do not want a monarch or an emperor in the party.”
“But the most important thing that drove us into that fight was to ensure that nobody is excluded from participation most especially in the governorship contest because even before the umpire blew the whistle, some people by fiat have concluded that some ethnic nationalities would run for governor, and others would not.”
