I’ll serve one term only – Omo-Agege

By Festus Ahon, Asaba
UGHELLI—A  governorship aspirant in Delta State, Chief Ovie Omo-Agege, has promised to run one single term of four  years, if elected governor in the forthcoming re-run election in the state.

Omo-Agege said he shared in the political aspiration that power should shift to the Delta North Senatorial District in 2015.

He added that he would be fielded by a political party that participated in the 2007 governorship election, whose candidate voluntarily resigned.

Omo-Agege, who spoke during separate consultation visits to the Okpara-Uku of Obiaruku and the Igwete of Amai Kingdom, Eze Monday Osai, yesterday in Ukuani Local Government Area of the state, assured that his tenure as governor would not be injurious to the interest and political aspiration of the Anioma people.

He reiterated that they had over the last three and half years been in the crusade to liberate the state from the illegal government and why Deltans were entitled to a new lease of life.

Advising the people of the state against allowing the complacency of 2007 to repeat itself, Omo-Agege stressed the need to make the removal of Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan by the court of Appeal permanent.

The governorship aspirant alleged that the on-going construction of international airport embarked upon by Uduaghan was a conduit pipe to drain the God- given resources of Deltans. He added that he would work towards the prudent management of the resources of the state if elected.

Promising to embark on a free education programme, which would include the building of two modern primary schools in each of the 25 local government areas of the state and renovation of the existing classroom blocks, Omo-Agege said he would also embark on free medical services for all Deltans.

Speaking further, he said he would embark on massive infrastructural development of the state, adding that the agricultural sector would also be revamped.
