He prayed for God guidance and protection as he continues with his mission to occupy the state house.

“I am not desperate. I have a passion to serve my people. My people have done so much for me. I have been blessed by Deltans as Executive Assistant, Commissioner, and Secretary to Delta State Government (SSG) in a state that have close to four million people. For me to be giving that privilege is not because I am the smartest, not because I am the best, but it is by the grace of God.
“The list I can I do is to pay back my people and my state. The only way I can pay back is to serve. The only place I can serve the people right now is for the office of the governor of Delta State,” he disclosed.

Omo-Agege who said Nigeria security problem is not Boko Haram but unemployment, promised the people that if he is elected the governor of Delta State, the trust of his policy would be the creation of jobs, adding that any programme he would introduce would be base on how many jobs it could produce.
“If the policy will not create enough jobs, no matter how good that policy will be, I will jettison it. The moment you create jobs for people, they will not be on the street to commit crime and there will be peace and order in the society.
He affirmed that Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has performed extremely well in his three points agenda which are human capital development, infrastructural development peace and security, but quickly added that someone has to take the programme to another level.
“I am here to take Delta State to another level”, he assured.
