A leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, has said Senator Ovie Omo-Agege’s ambition to be Deputy Senate President in the incoming National Assembly is doomed to fail following the court judgements annulling his status as senator-elect.
Emerhor, who is a factional APC candidate for Delta Central Senatorial District, being represented by Omo-Agege, stated this in a statement by his media aide, Mr. Aghogho Orotomah on Monday.
He said, “Omo-Agege is still delusional as the roof of his senatorial and deputy senate president ambition comes down crashing.
“He is acting like the proverbial drowning man grabbing at any straw in sight in an attempt to sustain his political life.”
Emerson further alleged that Omo-Agege may be scheming to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),.
He said, “Having succeeded in making the APC fail in the 2019 general elections, it was only a matter of time before he (Omo-Agege) goes back to his “natural home’, the PDP.”
He claimed that the Senator thwarted the mapped out plans of the mainstream APC in the state by encouraging Chief Great Ogboru to run for governorship despite the rotational and zoning factor.
“Omo-Agege upon joining APC kept his group of labor party joiners intact and later transformed it into the Ogboru/Agege faction of today’s Delta APC.
“Omo-Agege’s plan from day one was to ride on the back of Chief Great Ogboru to return back to the senate.
“He set about this by promising Chief Ogboru of making him Delta State governor in 2019. Against the run of play of equity and political reality, Omo-Agege sold this dummy to Chief Ogboru that power rotation and zoning in Delta State do not matter, that the Delta North do not deserve to complete their 8 years.”
