The Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will take over the reins of government in Delta State come 2019 as the party will kick PDP out of power.
Senator Omo-Agege stated this over the weekend at Orogun Ward 11, in Ughelli North local government, Delta State, after registering and obtaining his APC membership card.
He stressed that with him formally joining the party in the State, he will work with other leaders to ensure that the party form the next government in Delta.
“By giving me APC membership card, I want to pledge that working with other leaders, we will kick PDP led-government out of Delta state come 2019.
“We will sweep away PDP from Ughelli North, Delta Central and Delta State as a whole and also ensure that PDP never gets to power at the national level again,” Omo-Agege stated, while thanking the leadership of the party at the Ward, local government and the State levels.
He also reiterated his commitment to the Party and President Muhammadu Buhari’s government anti-corruption fight to sanitize the country and giving it the right foundation for needed development.
