The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has said the era where lawmakers threaten the President of the Country with removal from office were over with under the leadership of the National Assembly.
Omo-Agege said the leadership of the senate would create an enabling environment to realise the content of the “Next Level” agenda of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
The DSP stated this when he was received by a crowd of APC supporters and Deltans at his Orogun country-home in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta on Thursday evening, when he received a heroic welcome at the Osubi Airstrip in Okpe Council Area of the state.
Addressing the party supporters, Omo-Agege said the era where President Muhammadu Buhari was being threatened with impeachment was over.
According to him, president Buhari could now sleep without fear with the Ahmed Lawan-led leadership as Senate President.
“In my position as DSP working with the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan. The least we own Buhari is to create an enabling environment so that the content of the next level agenda that all of us campaigned for will be realised.
“The era when president was being threatened with removal is over. He can now sleep with his two eyes closed,” he said.
Omo-Agege urged the people of Delta to thank president Bulgari for the role he played in his emergence as the DSP.
He also urged the people to thank all the APC governors and all the senators in the elections.
“President Buhari loved Urhobo and Delta, he gave us a Minister and despite all odd, Buhari stood his ground to ensure that I become the DSP.
“South South region has not produced deputy Senate President since 1999 but all of this was possible because of president Buhari
“We should thank and support his government,” he said.
Omo-Agege urged the leadership of the APC in the three senatorial districts in Delta to work harder to win the senatorial seats in the 2023 election.
“All the districts must produce senators in the next election,” he said.
It was the first time Omo-Agege would be returning home since his reelection as senator representing Delta Central senatorial district and subsequent elevation as Deputy Senate President of the 9th Senate.
Crowd had throng the Osubi Airstrip as early as 8:30am awaiting his arrival
Omo-Agege, who arrived with the 2019 State APC governorship candidate, Chief Great Ogboru, the state party chairman, Prophet Jones Erue and other prominent party leaders, thanked the people of Delta Central for the mandate given to him.
Meanwhile, a Federal Commissioner of the National Population Commission (NPC) Sir Richard Odibo has dismissed insinuation that there was rift between Omo-Agege and the 2019 APC Governorship Candidate, Chief Ogboru.
Odibo made this declaration while thanking thousands of Delta Central APC supporters during a grand reception organized to welcome the lawmaker.
According to him, “All the rumours you are hearing about Chief Ogboru and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege are mere talk just to destroy their relationship.We therefore thank Senator Omo-Agege for a job well done for making Deltans proud.”
