A Non political group under the platform of Niger-Delta Study and Research Movement, NDSRM, has a passionate Appeal to the President Muhammadu Buhari, the national Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the leader of the party, Chief Ahmed Bola Tinubu to support their son, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege for the position of the Deputy Senate President at the red chamber of the national assembly.
The group in a statement by the Chairman, Deacon Philips Seikebiboe and Secretary, Amb. Kelvin Erhiurhoro, after an enlarged meeting held in Warri, Delta state, emphasized that the role played by Sen. Omo-Agege’s in the 8th assembly where he stood and conquered the gang up against president’s reelection is a proof of his unflinching support and loyalty to President Buhari.
The statement had revealed that such person like Omo-Agege who could not hide his love for the president, but rather went through rigorous time, battling to survive persecution, suspension and attack, should not be considered twice before he is nominated or be given a full backing for the Deputy Senate President’s position that he is vying for.
The statement further disclosed that all Omo-Agege is presently facing in the 8th assembly were not for personal course, but for the perceived anger from his colleagues that he was supporting the president, which election he eventually won in landslide, which is today has become history, but he (Omo-Agege) is being hunt for by those against Buhari’s emergence.
The group said, “Nevertheless, we are not political group, but, since the position had come to South-south region of the state, it is our duty too to look beyond and do our findings and recommend an illustrious son from the Niger Delta, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, whose pedigree is worthy of note and fits to stand the position of the Deputy Senate President.
“That we have for ones delve into politics on the choice of who to take the seat of the Deputy Senate President, and only for us to nominate Ovie Omo-Agege and which, we are appealing to the leadership of the party to throw their weight behind him to give Niger Delta region and South-south as a whole a sense of belonging, is worth clamouring for.
“We will continue as an entity, to support the good policies of the Buhari’s led administration as it affects the development and growth of our region. And ensure a relative peace in the region for as long as one of our sons is occupying the number 2 position of the Red Chamber as members move towards the 9th assembly.”
