Reports emerging from the Delta State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), put together by Cyril Abeye Ogodo has it that the Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Ovie Omo-Agege has been expelled from the party
The decision to expel Omo-Agege was taken at an emergency meeting of the State Working Committee in Asaba on Wednesday. The report says he was expelled for his continuous involvement in anti-party activities.
A document that was signed by the party’s Legal Adviser, Dennis Nwanokwai Esq. titled ‘Delta APC Expels Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, obtained by Sahara Reporters said that Omo-Agege expulsion takes effect immediately..
“The latest of such activities relates to the hijack of primaries panel members and materials sent from the national secretariat to conduct primaries in the state and deploying same to conduct unauthorised parallel primaries.
Others are the manipulation and tampering of delegates’ lists and the use of thugs to harass and deprive authentic delegates from accessing primaries venues, all that in conjunction with Prophet Jones Erue and others who have earlier been expelled from our party.
The expulsion of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is with immediate effect. The SWC also resolved to petition the security services, including the Police and DSS to arrest and prosecute Senator Omo-Agege, Prophet Jones Erue and others for impersonation and other actions calculated to breach public peace” the party stated.
It was however learned that the Ogboru/Omo-Agege faction of the APC led by Jones Erue had also slammed the state leader of the party and the 2015 Delta State governorship candidate of the party, and the party’s senatorial candidate in the 2019 general elections, O’tega Emerhor, with expulsion over same offence for which Omo-Agege was thrown out of the party.
