Ovie Omo-Agege


LAGOS DECEMBER 18TH (URHOBOTODAY)-SS Peter and Paul, Saint Theresa’s Catholic Women Organization, CWO and God’s Delight Gospel Assembly, aka Free Indeed of Udu local government of Delta State has rejected N20,000 allegedly giving to them as gift from Senator Representing Delta Central at the National Assembly, Barr. Ovie Omo-Agege.
Urhobotoday learnt that the women who lamented Omo-Agege’s poor performance as a Senator frowned at the Senator’s attempt to bribe them with a token of N20,000 all in the name of empowerment.
According to our source, most of the women invited jealously refused to be bought with such token as an empowerment, adding the SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church Auditorium was empty because majority of the women invited simply refused to honor the invtation saying they cannot sell their conscience again.
“Most of the Catholic women are teachers, headmistress and retired nurse” not traders nor widows, that the total number of women present were not more than 50 women and they decide to write the names of some women twice, “ our source revealed.
One of the supposed beneficiaries, who refused to participate describe the scheme as mortgaging her right and that of her children’s future said, “That ( N20,000 ), cannot mortgage her future, ” tell me! what will I do with such lean amount of money , those money belongs to everyone with in Delta Central not some selected Catholic women leaders, I do not need the money, there are aged mothers, widows and women whose children have no good job, those are the kind of people that needs to be mortgaged with such amount. Not me a retired head mistress.
“The essence of this empowerment is to encourage the women who are into petty trading but have no much money to put into it, rather buy some of the goods credit with promise to pay back but with this N20,000 given to them, they can now get their goods, sell and make their little gains.
“Am so ashamed of Omo-Agege giving women and youths N20, 000 as an empowerment. That is an insult to urhobo people. Of what use is such amount of money to vulnerables how much more market women. That over the past three years he has been seen given N20,000 each to petty traders. He is playing politics with our lives, it must stop.”
