Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has dismissed rumours of being a pagan on account of his late father’s allegiance to African tradition religion insisting that he is a Christian along with all his siblings.
Omo-Agege has in the same wise also justified the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC saying that it was better than having another Northerner as president.
In a statement made available to . issued by his spokesman, Ima Niboro, Omo-Agege speaking on the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC said:
“we want power for development and progress. That’s what we use power for. Tinubu has a wife who is a Pastor and if he could not islamize his wife, how would he be able to islamize other Nigerians?
“I believe that after eight years of Buhari it is only fair and equitable for power to move to the South. I put all my strength into it. Governors of the APC supported it. All governors of Southern Nigeria supported it, met and signed a Communique in Asaba. Okowa read the Communique.
“The focus should be who can bring development to our people. Okowa who is a Christian has he changed anything, are Deltans not crying?”he wondered.
Senator Omo-Agege also dismissed the views in some quarters that because his father, the late Justice James Omo-Agege was a pagan and an adherent of African Traditional Religion, specifically the Urhobo “Igbe” movement , he was also one.
He said while the Constitution of Nigeria guarantees freedom of religion and to that extent, he could not dictate the religious choices of his father, so too, his father could not dictate his own personal choice of religion. “As a result of this, all my siblings and I are devout christians of the Catholic faith. Christianity is a conscious choice for us, “ he explained.
