The Senior Special Adviser, Communications and Strategy, to Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, Mr. Godwin Anaughe has accused Mr Ortega Emerhor of conspiring with others to derail Urhobo’s march to greatness, noting that Emerhor’s recent comments that he is the Senator-elect of Delta Central Senatorial District are laughable.
Anaughe said this yesterday in Effurun while addressing newsmen.
Anaughe wondered how a man who worked so hard to ensure that Senator Ovie Omo-Agege was defeated in the election suddenly turned around to claim victory when his efforts failed.
“APC got only 13 votes in Emerhor’s unit in Evwreni ward 5, whereas PDP got 287. Also in unit 1, Evwreni, the unit of the Executive Director, Projects, Niger Delta Development Commission, APC lost in the Senate election with 24 votes compared to PDP’s 188 votes.
“Emerhor is dying politically and wants to use his last-gasp drive to pull Senator Ovie Omo-Agege down and in the process derail Urhobo’s march to greatness.
“We always knew that Emerhor wanted to be a senator, but no one could have imagined that he will adopt this kind of immoral tactics.
“In 2013 he ran for Senate in the by-election following the death of Chief Pius Ewherido and lost with 29,075 votes, losing to PDP’s Chief Emmanuel Agwariavwodo with 263,024 votes. In 2015 he ran for governorship and came third behind Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and Chief Great Ogboru with only 67,825 votes.’’
