Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship aspirant in 2015 general Obarisi(Barr.) Ovie Omo-Agege has promised to implement a Pan Delta agenda void of ethnicity that would offer viable solutions which will specially reflect the collective views and wishes of all the people of Delta State with focus on building a Delta state of the peoples’ dream with jobs and opportunities for every resident in every community.
Omo-Agege who made the promise during a gubernatorial consultation meeting with former PDP local government chairmen at Oleh, Delta State yesterday maintained that his earned experience in government as Executive Assistant to the Governor, Commissioner for Special Duties, Government House and Secretary to State Government (SSG) and the years out of government since 2007 gives him a unique understanding of these critical issues and how he intends to resolve them.
“My focus will be on how we can build a Delta state of our dream with jobs and opportunities for every resident in every community. The goal is to strengthen our families and revitalise our communities,” he stressed, adding, “We all know these challenges because we face them every day in our daily lives. They are unemployment, general insecurity, corruption, rising food prices, housing shortage and broken marriages are some the challenges we must overcome,” he affirmed.
Omo-Agege pointed out that he envisage a more dynamic and brighter future for Delta state and believe that through collaborative and inclusive efforts, the people of Delta State irrespective of where they came from or the language they speak could make it possible.
Omo-Agege who said he has a passion to serve his people poured encomium on Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan’s record of achievements and his desire to even do more and finished stronger in the remaining period of his tenure in Delta State but added that there are enormous challenges to face as the people of Delta State go forward.
Hear him,“This is not my campaign, it is the people’s campaign and we are going to inspire a public conversation on how we can have a strong and stable economy, a secured and strong society, a cleaner environment and a new kind of politics to create the jobs we so badly needed. Erecting these four pillars of the Delta state of our dream on the foundation laid by the Uduaghan administration will be the focus of my administration if I am given the rare privilege to serve the good people of Delta state in the next four years.
“But we cannot erect these pillars until we diversify our economy from the oil and gas sector to agriculture and agro-allied industries, tourism, entertainment and sports as envisaged in the Delta Beyond Oil programme of Governor Uduaghan, modernise and expand our infrastructure, restore law and order, provide community policing services, affordable housing, deliver improvements in quality and capacity in our health care system. We also need to refocus marriages and strengthen our families, empower our youths and women, redevelop and beautify our cities and towns as well as change our politics.
“Doing all these will not be easy. But I believe it is doable. That is why I have decided to join the race and I am fully prepared to win to take up the unfinished business of building a Delta state of our dream which started in 1999. I can’t do it alone. But with all of us working together as a team, we can. We can transform our state to the level thought impossible and through this living example make the opposition completely irrelevant in Delta State.
“Each and every one resident in Delta state whether you are an indigene or not, have a role to play in determining the course and direction of its future, while it is the responsibility of the next governor to articulate a vision for the entire state and all of its residents.”
