Delta state governorship candidate for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the forthcoming 2023 general elections and speaker of the State House of Assembly, Mr. Sheriff Oborevwori, on Thursday said Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is the worst Deputy Senate President Nigeria has ever produced.
Hon. Oborevwori stated this in Asaba, at the inauguration of Delta PDP campaign council.
The state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, charged the team to concentrate their campaign more at the units and wards level.
He said, “I want to appeal to the aspirants to embrace all and do the one you can to support your brother because there is always a tomorrow. In 2006, I ran for governor but didn’t get it but I supported the person and today I’m a governor.
“Our campaign will go through 270 wards that’s where our votes will come from. My politics is based on issue and I don’t insult people in the course of my politicking.
“Those that said I have not done anything in Delta state are locked up in Abuja, he maybe from Delta but locked up himself in Abuja.”
He urged all the political appointees to go back to their various units and wards, saying that they need to work harder now that PDP has its Vice Presidential candidate in Delta state.
Okowa said more responsibility is now on him as vice presidential candidate, noting that he may not be regular at the various campaign because he will be going to other states.
Sheriff thanked Okowa for standing and believing in him.
Oborevwori said the party has come out stronger and united in the couple of weeks, pledging to uphold the lagacy of Governor Okowa, who he said has made his campaign easier based on his achievements.
He said Omo-Agege is the worst Deputy Senate President in the history of Nigeria, describing him as abuse of power and undemocratic tendency.
Inaugurating the campaign council, the State Chairman of the party, Mr. Kingsley Esiso. said the ceremony was to kick-start the compaign to produce a new governor in the state.
He also lambasted Omo-Agege over the condition of federal roads in Delta, adding that he never attracted one good road to the state.
