The Chiefs recalled that there were no doubts in their mind that Omo-Agege would emerge victorious in the election hence his performances in the Senate for only four years placed him above his colleagues as the first Senator to sponsor over ten Bills in the 8th Assembly.
The group advised the Deputy Senate President to use his good office to attract Federal attention in term development to Urhobo Nation, Delta State and South-South region of Nigeria by providing industries that will provide employment to the teeming unemployed youths, infrastructural development, security, qualitative education and socio-economical development among others
The Chiefs equally urged him to use this opportunity to advance for the dredging and reopening of Warri, Koko, Burutu, Port Harcourt and other seaports in South-South which had been neglected and suffered several setbacks in the past.
“If the seaports are re-opened, it will provide jobs for the teeming unemployed youths and as such reduce the present high crime rate. It will equally open up the socio-economic life of the people,” the statement disclosed.
