Undermining the fact that the People’s Democratic Party is the only party with standing structures in Delta, the Senator representing Delta Central in the National Assembly, Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will take over the reins of government in Delta come 2019.

Omo-Agege stated this at Orogun in Ughelli North local government area after registering and obtaining his APC membership card, having defected from the Labour Party under which he regained his mandate from Chief Ighoyota Amori, the former occupant of the PDP.

While thanking the party leaders at the ward, local government and the state, Omo-Agege added: “by giving me APC membership card, I want to pledge that working with other leaders, we will kick PDP led-government out of Delta state come 2019.
“We will sweep away PDP from Ughelli North, Delta central and Delta state as a whole and also ensure that PDP never gets to power at the national level again.”
He also reiterated his commitment to the party and President Mohammadu Buhari government anti-corruption fight to sanitize the country and giving it the right foundation for the needed development.
The Senator stated further that the reason for the current economic recession in the country was as a result of the massive looting of the state treasury by the past PDP led government which leaders had unhindered access to state treasury, adding that the looting was like a man collecting money using the ATM.
He also urged the Urhobo nation and Deltans to support the Buhari government because it meant well for the people, noting that the Calabar-Lagos rail project has three terminal station, at Ughelli, Uviwe and Sapele with capacity of impacting positively on the economy of the Urhobo nation.
The state party Chairman, Prophet Jones Erue, who is on hand to formally present the party flag and symbol to Senator Omo-Agege, described the senator as a vibrant senator who has given the Urhobo and Delta a voice in the senate.
