Emerhor Accuse Omo-Agege Of Destroying APC In Delta
Says he’s on his way back to PDP
A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Delta state, O’tega Emerhor has accused Ovie Omo-Agege, senator representing Delta central, of destroying the party in the state.
Emerhor in a statement issued on Monday said Omo-Agege joined the APC from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to destabilise before the 2019 elections.
Omo-Agege had, while reacting to Emerhor’s petition against him, accused the APC chieftain of blackmail and working against the party’s interest.
But in the statement issued by Aghogho Orotomah, his spokesman, Emerhor said “Omo-Agege is the real cancer that invaded and ravaged the body politics of Delta APC.”
According to him, now that he (the senator) has accomplished his task of distabilizing the party and making it fail in the 2019 general elections, Omo-Agege will soon head back to the PDP, his natural home.
He said, ” Delta APC has known no peace since Omo-Agege was welcomed by Emerhor to the party in 2017. Omo-Agege who used the Labor party to fight President Buhari and APC in the 2015 general elections was magnanimously admitted into APC in 2017.
“Omo-Agege upon joining APC kept his group of labor party joiners intact and later transformed it into the Ogboru/Agege faction of today Delta APC.
“Omo-Agege’s plan from day one was to ride on the back of Chief Great Ogboru to return back to the senate. He set about this by promising Chief Ogboru of making him Delta State governor in 2019.
“Omo-Agege ended up making Ogboru a laughing stock. Instead of making Ogboru governor, (he) actually sabotaged him after purportedly winning his senatorial bid.”
