2023: Okowa Betrayed Southern Presidency Agreement – Omo-Agege

Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, an All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for governor of Delta State, attacked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa on Thursday.

After meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja, the Deputy Senate President spoke with reporters.

The legislator denied that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) controls Delta.

“That is a grave misunderstanding. Delta is quite ready to be taken,” he said.

Omo-Agege expressed dissatisfaction with the state of the oil-rich State despite receiving significant funding from the federal government.

He said that Delta had received about N4.2 trillion since Okowa took office in 2015.

“This came by way of federal allocation, 13 percent derivation, and also about N400billion the State has borrowed,’’ he said.

Omo-Agege said that the N30,000 minimum wage as well as gratuities and pensions were not paid by Okowa’s administration.

Despite being a doctor, the senator claimed that Delta’s health care system was subpar.

Okowa was accused of undermining the push for a Southern presidency by the PDP candidate.

The South’s representative as President Buhari’s successor, he claimed, is only fair and equitable.

The governor was one of the regional leaders that led the drive and met in Asaba and Lagos, according to Omo-Agege.

“Okowa betrayed that course by selling away our right, and instead going for Vice President when the country is offering us the presidency.

”So our people are not taking this treachery kindly and are determined that they will punish him,” he added.

Okowa rejected earlier this week that he was working against the South’s will to elect the next president of Nigeria.
