Two months after losing out in the Delta State Governorship election , the Deputy President of the Senate , Ovie Omo – Agege , declared that he won the election clean and clear and that he would retrieve his stolen mandate from the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) , Sheriff
Oborevwori.

The Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) , had in the election conducted on March 18, 2023 , declared Oborevwori of PDP as winner with 360,234 votes , which was over 120, 000 votes above 240,229 votes reportedly scored by Omo – Agege in the election.

But Omo- Agege while granting audience to some of his constituents from Delta Central at the National Assembly in Abuja on Wednesday, said the result declared by INEC , was a ruse that cannot stand the test of litigation .

” I won the Delta Governorship election conducted in March this year by INEC , clean and clear .

” All the manipulations carried out by PDP in collaboration with some staff of INEC , have been exposed and will be used as exhibits in the court of law .

” I am determined to fight it all the way because the real valid votes scored by me in the election , are more than enough to declare me as the governor – elect ” , he said .

On the visitation made to him by his constituents from Ndokwa over facilitation of Federal University of Medical and Health Sciences in Kwale community , Omo – Agege said President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Education , Adamu Adamu , should be thanked for the feat .

He added that he made the facilitation without any consultation or collaboration with anybody in Delta State .

” I didn’t do it in consultation with anybody . I did it all by myself . If anybody should be thanked for the University , it should be President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Education , Mallam Adamu Adamu ” , he said .

He however admonished the Hon Mercy Almona – Isei led delegation from Ndokwa/ Ukwuani that compensation should not be attached to the 100 hectares of land donated for the University , saying ” the issue of ownership of shrine or farm , should not arise from any quarters .
