Members Give Omo-Agege Seven-Day Ultimatum to ‘Repair’ Delta APC

Due to the unresolved crisis within the All Progressives Congress Party (APC), some members of the party in Ika Federal Constituency of the state yesterday issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, to restore all the wards he allegedly hijacked during the last party congresses.

At a meeting held in Boji-Boji Owa in Ika North-East Local Government Area of the state, the aggrieved members symbolically pulled down the party’s flag as a gesture of their disapproval of the alleged dictatorial leadership style of Senator Omo-Agege, warning g that the looming storms of disaffection would sink the APC unless immediate steps were taken to thoroughly conduct a reconciliation of the feuding executive members.

The members in a voice vote urged “the college of leaders in the state” to within seven days meet with the national executive council of the party to address the lingering disputes where some members were allegedly given the short end of the stick.

The college of leaders includes Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, Chief Festus Keyamo, Dr Cairo Ojougboh, Chief Great Ogboru,  Hon Victor Ochei, Dr (Mrs)Mariam Ali, Dr Alex Ideh and a host of others.

Addressing the meeting, the Delta North senatorial chairman of the party, Mr. Ifeanyi William Aghaulor, however, appealed to the APC loyalists to be calm and remain resolute as nobody can be manipulated or election rigged anymore under the new electoral act, adding that the Delta State could not afford to miss out and allow PDP to keep its hold on the state simply because of the attitude of one man, the deputy president of the Senate, in handling the affairs of the party in the state.

Mr Ifeanyi said:

”Two issues are on ground here: one, DSP Omo-Agege single-handedly hijacked all the structures in the state from ward to national level. 

“A lot of persons want to run for election and if the structure is with Omo-Agege, can you defeat him? whoever he likes he will give it but  politics is not played like that. Politics is a game of numbers, the people you see here are not borrowed.”
