- As the 2019 general elections draw nearer, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has urged the people of Urhobo to cast their votes for President Muhammadu Buhari
- He says Urhobo people will benefit from re-electing the president in 2019
- Omo-Agege is the lawmaker representing Delta Central senatorial district in the Senate
Senator Obaisi Ovie Omo-Agege has advised people of Urhobo to ensure that they re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general elections, saying that it is in the best interest of the Urhobo nation.
Vanguard reports that Omo-Agege, who is representing Delta Central senatorial district, made a consultative visit to leaders, elders, ward and local council executives of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ughelli, Otu-Jeremi and Otor-Udu in Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu council areas of the state.
NAIJ.com gathers that the senator stated re-electing the president for a second term in office would attract more infrastructural development to Delta Central and Delta state at large.
Omo-Agege was accompanied by Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru, APC Delta Central chairman, Olorogun Adalabu Bodjor, Sir Richard Odibo and other leaders of the party.
According to the senator, the visible change being witnessed in parts of the state is as a result of the efforts of the presidency.
Speaking on the impasse rocking the Delta state chapter of the APC, he said: “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 commercialise the party because we do not want a monarch or an emperor in this 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.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that a coalition of youth groups in Bauchi promised to mobilise and rally support for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The group identified as Coalition of Katagum Youth Groups made the promise at a rally held in Azare.
The group also promised to work for the re-election of Governor Mohammed Abubakar and lawmaker representing Katagum federal constituency, Ibrahim Mohammed Baba.
