…Omo-Agege will be Delta Governor in no distant future
The Senator representing Delta Central, Senator Ede Dafinone, has emphasized that his duty as a senator is to serve the people of Delta Central and touch as many lives as possible in the district without minding political or religious affiliation.

He said, “I belong to the Urhobo people, it does not matter if you vote for me or not whether you are in party A or B, it’s irrelevant. My assignment is to serve the good people of Delta Central. I promise my people that I will be accessible, my door is always open for everybody.
“My assignment is not an easy one, my late father Senator David Dafinone, made a trail through which I am now following, he threads the party not just in Okpe, Urhobo, and Delta State but the whole of Nigeria. As I take up the assignment, I take all the responsibility that goes with it, to deliver the dividends of democracy to the great people of Delta Central, I have the objective to touch as many lives of the people Delta Central, to change as many lives as possible.
Dafinone further disclosed that the outstanding performance of the former DSP, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege made his campaign easier, “because of what he (Senator Ovie Omo-Agege) did all over Delta Central and beyond. We could point at a meaningful project at every ward we visited. The number of senators that could achieve what he did in the last 24 years would not be more than five,” he said.
While offering thanksgiving to God during the service, Senator Dafinone said; he was dedicating the victory to God, the hardworking members of the political campaign team, and the esteemed leaders of the All-Progressive Party, APC, for their tireless efforts during campaign periods, adding that the teams were undeterred by challenges.
Ministering at the Thanksgiving service which took place at Praise Baptist Church New Ogorode Road Sapele, Delta State, Rev Iweh Godspower took his sermon from 1st Cor 15 verse 9-10 and title his message “I am who I am by his Grace.”
Rev Iweh explained to the congregation the need to always acknowledge the grace of God in their lives, stressing the need for believers to embrace humility in their day-to-day affairs. “This is the conclusion of the whole matter fear God.”
If you wish to express gratitude to God, you must recognize His grace. Humbling oneself is one of the ways to respond to grace.”
While outlining some of the challenges Senator Ede Dafinone might face, he advised him to carry the eight local governments along. “We have 24 clans in the eight local governments in Delta Central and you must carry everyone along, I know it’s not easy but with the grace of God you can,” he said.
