The Senate Deputy President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has boasted that the ruling All Progressives Congress would produce the successor to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), come 2023.
Omo-Agege, representing Delta Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, spoke in Asaba on Wednesday while congratulating the new executives of the Delta State chapter of APC, led by Chief Omeni Sobotie, shortly after they were sworn in at the party secretariat in the state capital.
Addressing party faithful at the forum, Omo-Agege declared, “Let me tell you a small secret; APC will produce the President in 2023. There’s nothing anyone can do about it”.
Commenting on the politicians who recently decamped from APC to the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Senator Omo-Agege described them as the Biblical Akhans submitting that their action was “good riddance to very bad rubbish.”
The Deputy Senate President, however, spoke on the New Testament teaching on repentance, saying that “should they repent, they will be welcomed back.”
Omo-Agege congratulated Sobotie and his executives on their inauguration, urging them to extend a hand of fellowship to all, including those who did not support his emergence.
He said, “Now that the contest has come and gone, I urge you to rise and take everybody in, by reaching out to them”.
Also in attendance at the event was Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, representing Delta North Senatorial District, who maintained that he would not return to his vomit by going back to the PDP.
Addressing the gathering, Nwaoboshi stated, “Our goal is to defeat Okowa and whoever he wants to impose as governorship candidate.”
