The Executives of the All Progressives Congress, Orogun Ward 2 has passed a vote of confidence on the Deputy President of the Senate and the Delta State APC governorship candidate for the March 11th 2023 governorship election, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege today, 4th April, 2023.
The vote was called after some group of persons in a release dated 31st March, 2023 claiming to be members of the APC purportedly suspended Senator Ovie Omo-Agege over what the D.G of Delta Emancipation Movement for Agege (DEMA), Chief Do-Good Efe-Nogo described as “very laughable and spurious claims.”
In a release made available to Oghwoghwa Reporters, the Orogun Ward 2 APC Chairman, Chief Gabriel Orogun, stated that as Chairman of the Ward, he ought to be aware if a letter is to be written. In his words: “We are not aware of any expulsion letter written by any person in this ward. I am the Chairman. If a letter would be conveyed to any other place, I think me, the Chairman, should be the head. My Secretary is not aware. My Vice is not aware. All the Excos are not aware. So we are not aware of such a letter written by any person.“
Chief Orogun, in company of some members of the Ward Exco which include Mr. Emmanuel Etaghene- Vice Chairman, Anthony Edeki Nkwo- Secretary, Rufus Edi- Youth Leader, Mrs Comfort Ayanga-Woman Leader, Mr. Joshua Asanakpa- Publicity Secretary, among others, further stated that the person who claimed to have written the letter has committed a criminal case of impersonation “We are leaving here to the Station to report to the Police to make sure they bring that person to book.”
In a display of loyalty to Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Orogun Ward 2 Exco vowed that “We remain strongly behind our DSP. He remains our leader. He remains the DSP. He remains the governor to be. By the grace of God, he is going to be our governor. We are expecting the court to take decision, and we will all be at Asaba for his swearing in.”
