Amid suffering defeat, Omo-Agege claims he won Delta gov election

Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Deputy Senate President and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship candidate in Delta State, has confidently declared that he won the election in a fair and transparent manner.

Although he lost the Delta State Governorship election two months ago, Omo-Agege vowed to reclaim his allegedly stolen mandate from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Sheriff Oborevwori.

During a meeting with a delegation from Ndokwa/Ukwuani, led by former House of Representatives member Hon. Mercy Almona Isei, in Abuja on Wednesday, Omo-Agege expressed his belief that the result declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was a sham that would not withstand legal scrutiny.

It should be noted that during the election held on March 18, 2023, INEC announced Oborevwori of the PDP as the winner with 360,234 votes, surpassing Omo-Agege’s reported 240,229 votes by over 120,000 votes.

Omo-Agege said, ” I won the Delta Governorship election conducted in March this year by INEC , clean and clear.

”All the manipulations carried out by PDP in collaboration with some staff of INEC , have been exposed and will be used as exhibits in the court of law .

”I am determined to fight it all the way because the real valid votes scored by me in the election , are more than enough to declare me as the governor – elect.”

Speaking on the visit by his constituents from Ndokwa over facilitation of Federal University of Medical and Health Sciences in Kwale community, the senator said that President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu , should be thanked for the feat.

Noting that he made the facilitation without any consultation or collaboration with anybody in Delta State, Omo-Agege added, “I didn’t do it in consultation with anybody. I did it all by myself. If anybody should be thanked for the University, it should be President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu.”

He told the delegation led by Mercy Almona – Isei that compensation should not be attached to the100 hectares of land donated for the University, saying that the issue of ownership of shrine or farm should not arise from any quarters.
