LAGOS DECEMBER 16TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Former Secretary to Delta State Government (SSG) and Chairman of Urhobo Political Congress (UPC), Chief Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege has attributed the success of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the recent Delta Central bye-election to the great achievements of Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan’s administration in the past six and half years which are visible for everyone to see in Delta State.
Omo-Agege who made the statement yesterday at Orogun, Delta State, during a victory rally organized by Ughelli North Chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to celebrate the success of the party in the election which saw Senator Emmanuel Aguariavbodo emerging victorious , maintained that they would not have been celebrating today without the resolute support of Emmanuel Uduaghan whose strong leadership made the victory possible.
He said the people of Delta State are better off than when he took office in 2007.
“I am so proud of our Governor’s record and grateful for all he has done to make us safe and stronger, the infrastructure he has built to drive our economy and more importantly for his vision of Delta Beyond Oil which has laid a solid foundation for future economy that can sustain itself when oil become less significant in our national life,” Omo-Agege said.
Omo-Agege who recently emerged as the Chairman of Urhobo Political Congress (UPC) pointed out that PDP won the Delta Central Senatorial bye-election because the party has superior organization that is evident in the structures it has built over the years in every ward of the state, adding that because of their unity there were no challenges they were not unable to overcome.
According to him, “Our unity in the election made the difference between success and failure. The opposition expected us to fight ourselves and when we did not, they failed strategically and we succeeded in winning back our seats.”
Expressing his gratitude to Delta State Deputy Governor, Professor Emos Utuama for standing by them and leading them so well, Omo-Agege who was a Senatorial Aspirant in the Delta Central Senatorial bye-election also extended his greetings to PDP South South Vice Chairman, Dr Steve Oru, PDP Delta Central Vice Chairman Chief Tom Amioku, PDP Chairman Delta Central Campaign Council Prof Sam Oyovbaire,Hon Evlyn Oboro and other members of and other members of the campaign council who worked so hard for the party victory.
Speaking further, Omo-Agege who is the Chief Host of the Victory Party reminded the large crowd of PDP faithfull who stormed Orhoerho Secondary School, Orogun for the event that the greater challenge before them is to retain the governorship position of Delta State and that of the President in 2015, stressing that they have to work harder so as to achieve total victory so that Urhobo nation would not fall into the hands of the opposition that gave them nothing except misery.
“This victory was especially sweet because when our party reclaimed the Senatorial seat which we lost in 2011 election, Ughelli North LGA stood up to be counted for our party and delivered his votes overwhelmingly to our great party. Ughelli LGA as you know has been the strong hold of the opposition that very few people gave us a chance but because we understood that there is so much at stake for us and the Urhobo nation we refused to give up, and because we refused to give up, we said enough is enough of opposition politics and because we sad enough is enough, we spread the message and mobilized our people, and because of the outcome of our collective toil, Urhobo can now stand up again and speak out strongly to project and protect his interest.
“This victory is not for our party. It is a victory for all Urhobos at home, abroad and other ethnic nationalities who reside in Urhoboland because at last we are free from the grip of opposition that condemned us to political wilderness,” he stressed.
