Why We Are Backing Omo-Agege For DSP – S/South APC



Omo-Agege miracle Delta

The leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the South-South has endorsed the aspiration of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for the position of Deputy Senate President in the 9th Senate.

The endorsement of his aspiration ahead of his only rival in the zone, Senator Francis Alimekhena followed considerations of the fact that the party’s national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole is also from the same Edo State as Senator Alimekhena.

A statement from the leadership of the party in the zone nevertheless averred that the two senators were both qualified but that the considerations put Omo-Agege ahead.

The statement issued by the zonal chairman, Hillard Eta and secretary, David Okumagba while commending President Muhammadu Buhari’s leadership of the party said:

“It is important to state that our two illustrious sons, Distinguished Senators Francis Alimikhena from Edo State and Ovie Omo-Agege from Delta State had indicated interest to contest for the office of the Deputy Senate President. 

“Both of them are eminently qualified for that office as both are ranking Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.  

However, considering the current zoning of political offices in our zone whereby Edo State produced the current National Chairman of our great Party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and other considerations, it became imperative that our zone supports the candidature of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for the office of the Deputy Senate President. 

“The South South geo political zone had demonstrated uncommon faith, courage and vigour in the just concluded general elections by voting massively for candidates of our great Party at all levels. 

“We implore all Distinguished Senators to please stand by us and support Senator Ovie Omo Agege for the position of Deputy Senate President.”
