Deputy Senate President and Delta APC Governorship candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege Tuesday brushed aside the defection of the party’s state secretary, Otunba Nick Ovuakporie to the PDP, declaring that the ruling party in the state was planning to disrupt the forthcoming polls in the state.
Senator Omo-Agege who spoke as the ongoing Delta APC ward to ward campaigns closed in Delta Central, told teeming crowds of supporters at Ogor, Ughelli and Agbarho, Ughelli North LGA, Tuesday, January 24, that he is confident beyond doubt that APC will sweep the polls at all levels in the coming elections.
He said intelligence reports indicate that Delta PDP, having lost thousands of members as well as tremendous grounds across the State, was recruiting armed thugs to disrupt the vote.
While assuring APC members and supporters of adequate security, he warned that anyone caught in the act will be ruthlessly dealt with and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. He added that he will not listen to any plea from any quarters on behalf of such criminal elements.
He appreciated the huge support given to APC in the campaigns, in spite of the attempt by Governor Okowa’s government to frustrate the Delta APC Campaign Council.
“They refused to let us use any government facility, they refused to give us the stadium. But Ughelli is my home. Anybody who comes here to campaign will only waste his money. I know what Ughelli want and Ughelli will get it. Trust me, you will be happy when I become governor.”
Omo-Agege charged the huge crowds to carry the message that the people are tired of the PDP and Governor Okowa who, he said, has treated the State’s Treasury as his private wallet he said besides alluding to claims by the ruling party to disrupt the polls in Delta State.
Speaking during the rallies, Chief Ede Dafinone, APC Delta Central senatorial district candidate called for outright rejection of all PDP candidates at the polls.
“Reject them completely so that never again shall those unprepared to serve come forward. If they give you money, collect the money but vote them out.”
