Omo-Agege blasts PDP, lobbies Itsekiri nation to vote APC in 2023
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Ovie Omo-Agege, Deputy President of the Senate, visiting Chief Ayiri Emami at his residence in Ubeji, Warri South Local Government Area, called on the Itsekiri nation to vote for the APC at all levels in 2023 general elections.
Omo-Agege said that voting for APC would end the marginalisation of oil producing ethnic nationalities in the state.
The APC governorship candidate said that the Itsekiri nation has not benefitted much from the 13 per cent oil derivation accruing to the state for contributing to the nation’s economy.
According to Omo-Agege, “This election is the one that will change course of politics in Delta.
“For some of us; we believe that enough is enough; we need to reverse the trend and doing so; we need people who believe that there is something wrong.
“Some of us believe that the status quo is not good for the well-being of the Itsekiri nation.
“That is why we are leading the change and we believe that all well-meaning Itsekiri people will join us in this effort to change the narrative.”
Omo-Agege said that voting for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to be president in 2023 would help address the problem of marginalisation of the Itsekiri nation, as he is an in-law and a member of the nation.
Omo-Agege, representing Delta Central in the National Assembly, stated: “With the experience I have gained serving at national level especially in the senate, the president, no matter how powerful needs the support of the National Assembly.
“That is why the candidates we are putting forward will not just represent the interest of the Ijaw or Isoko people, but also the interest of the Itsekiri nation.
“My appeal is that you support Tinubu as president, Omo-Agege as governor, our senator, members House of Representatives and House of Assembly.”
