Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has said the All Progressives Congress, APC will remain the ruling party in the country beyond 2023 whether the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP likes it or not .
Pulsenews learned Omo-Agege said this during the inauguration of the Executive Committee of the Delta State chapter of the APC which had Engr Omeni Sobotie as chairman and Mr Nick Ovuakporie as secretary .
He also said the APC was ready to defeat the PDP in Delta state in the forthcoming general election.
Omo-Agege ,who represents Delta Central, however, said the task to dislodge the PDP in the state was huge, urging members of the APC in the state to remain focused and embark on an intense membership drive.
Omo-Agege who was joined by Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, Chief Frank Kokori, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, Chief Austin Izagbo and other leaders of the party, congratulated the executive members on their inauguration.
He urged them to extend the olive branch to their respective former co-contestants in order to build a more united and formidable party in the state.
‘Let us rise above our differences, reach out to your former co- contestants because our goal is to defeat Okowa and whoever he attempts to impose on Delta.
The people of Delta will decide their governor and other representatives in 2023. It is not for one man or a certain pressure group to decide’ he said.
Speaking on those who recently defected to the PDP, Omo-Agege said they needed to exit APC for the party to make progress, noting however that they would be forgiven if they repent.
‘I know they (PDP) are thinking and planning by now but let me assure you that there is nothing they will plan that we don’t know, there is no rigging spot I don’t know.
They are busy sending names, registering goats, we shall see how goats will vote on election day. I want to beg us as members of APC to be committed to throwing the PDP out in 2023’ Senator Peter Nwaoboshi also said.
