Kicks off campaign in Udu
As Waive says Urhobo not looking for Senator but a ranking senator
Serving Senator representing Delta Central in the Senate has kick-started his 120 stops ward to ward campaign for a second tenure in the Red Chambers, with visits to Otor-Udu, Owhrode, Ogbe-Udu and Emadaja communities of Delta Central senatorial district.
Speaking at Otor-Udu , the headquarters of the local government, Omo-Agege urged the Urhobo people to take advantage of the several projects which President Buhari’s administration has executed in the district and the chances open for Urhobo to produce a ranking Senator and vote for the All Progressives Congress in the forthcoming election.
He recalled the sordid situation facing the Urhobo prior to the 2015 election, adding that today the situation has changed positively for the Delta Central people.
The prospective ranking senator reeled out some of the strategic projects which the President Buhari has completed and ongoing in Urhobo land, stressing on the completion of the railway project from Udu to Itakpe in Kogi State.
Said he: “The railway project was abandoned by the past administration. But as a Senator, I can tell you that I persuade President Buhari to complete the project and all the overhead bridges. And in the next one week, people will be able to travel on the train from Udu to Itakpe.
“The President has also approved the extension of the rail line to the port and to Abuja and so it will be possible to travel from Udu to Abuja on a train.”
The Senator also stressed that it was Buhari’s administration which worked hard to ensure that the pension of DSC workers was paid as well as put in motion the resuscitation of the steel plant.
He recalled that the Sapele-Agbor Federal highway has been abandoned for a long time but with the coming of President Buhari, the construction of the road has started.
Senator Omo-Agege urged the Urhobos to vote massively for President Buhari if they want more projects and also complete the ongoing federal project in the state. According to him, “if you want me to go back to the Senate as a ranking Senator, then you must cast your vote for President Buhari on February 16, 2019.”
He also urged the people to vote massively for Chief Great Ovedje Ogboru for the governorship of the state, adding that “the era of Ogboru winning and his victory hijacked by the PDP was over”. He assured that the people’s votes would be counted this time around.
Omo-Agege also called on the people of Udu, Ughelli North and South Federal constituency to vote for the APC candidate, Rev. Francis Ejiroghene Waive for the House of Representative, adding that a synergy between him in the Senate and Rev. Waive in House of Reps will produce the best result for the Constituency, just as the Senator called on the people of Udu to vote for Hon. Ben Shatar for the House of Assembly to work with Governor Ogboru for the good of the Udu people.
Speaking at the occasion, the House of Reps candidate for Udu, Ughelli North and South Federal Constituency, Rev, Francis Waive noted that “Urhobo have gone beyond looking for a Senator but for a ranking senator”, adding that the time for Urhobo to grab the opportunity of leadership in the Senate has come.
Present at the ceremony were the leader of the Elder Advisory Council of the Ovie Omo-Agege Campaign Council, Chief Samuel Oteheri, the State Vice Chairman of the APC Delta Central, Olorogun Barr. Adelabu Bodjor among others.
