Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, declared his intention to run for the Delta State governorship seat come 2023 general elections.
This was made known while speaking to some APC leaders, members, supporters on Thursday at the arena of the Federal University Of Petroleum Resources (FUPRE), Effurun.
He accused Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of marginalising the people of Ndokwa, Isoko and Ijaw nations.
Addressing the mammoth crowd of APC leaders, members, supporters and stakeholders, Omo-Agege reeled out his stewardship saying that he had decided to step out of his comfort zone to contest for the 2023 governorship election so as to extend his good works to the state.
The Deputy Senate President, who accused the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa-led administration of spending over N2billion on a monthly basis on aides who did nothing, described Okowa’s government “as a big waste and fraud, boasting that the APC as a party is fully prepared to take over the state from the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).”
