Publicity Secretary (Pub. Sec.) of the Peoples Democratic Part, Delta state, Dr Ifeanyi Osuoza, has has cautioned the All Progressive Party (APC) to focus on issue based campaign and avoid mudslinging and character assasination of his opponents.
Dr Osuoza’s caution is contained in a press statement ge issued in Asaba, during APC’s gubernatorial inauguration of it’s campaign council, in what he described as “APC’s comedy skit”, where Omo-Agege was boasting that Okowa will never be vice president, rather than unfold his agenda to Deltans.
According to publicity secretary any candidate who is spoiling to upstage the PDP in Delta state has a lot of work to do because the party has carved a niche that cannot easily be wiped by a mere campaign of calumny, for its defence, accoding to the “PUB. SEC”, PDP’s are impregnable.
His words, “APC governorship candidate and Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, instead of concentrating on his hopelessly ephemeral gubernatorial ambition, perplexingly veered off script, having apparently lost track of his core subject matter and proceeded to quite incoherently, boast that his one-man show of a pretence to a political party, would ensure that Delta State Governor and Vice-Presidential candidate of the PDP, Senator, Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, will never become Vice-President of Nigeria.
“What moral justification has such a man of extremely questionable loyalty and shapeshifting fidelity, to cast aspersions on Governor Okowa, a man of proven and unrivaled consistency throughout the entirety of his epoch-making political career?
“Like some delusional potentate who already sees himself in Government House, the one rescued by the court as ‘Mace Runner’ imperiously commanded the minions at the inauguration that:
“as you vote for Omo-Agege to be your governor, don’t forget that we need our men in all positions.”
What a way to refer to oneself? You currently have only one House of Assembly seat, you similarly have just one Federal House of Representatives seat, one of your Senators is now an ex-convict and you are day dreaming of clearing the whole of Delta State?
Seriously, Omo-Agege might have made a successful career in standup comedy, after all!
“Delving further into a cesspool of delusions, he said: “Here in Delta, 2023 is our turn, the decision has been taken and that is what I have come here today to tell you all.” Who took this most momentous decision and was it in a coven or where exactly?
“Omo-Agege can continue to delude himself that he is running against Governor Okowa who is not on the ballot for governorship, is already completing his incomparable tenure as Governor, became a Senator before him, is the incoming Vice-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and will forever stand heads and shoulders above him.
“We are not in the least bothered but are quite happy to buy tickets for the cinema show featuring their impending ‘poto-poto’ fight as Omo-Agege vainly tries to split Ogboru’s votes in the collective opposition cache, while we simply remain in Government House and continue to build upon the astonishing feats and good work of the Okowa administration for the good people of Delta State, when the new Sheriff in town and incoming Governor Oborevwori takes over in 2023.
“Of course, Senator Omo-Agege should be told that Delta State has since moved ahead away from him and is effectively in the hands of God and will only accept one who believes in and worships God, not an idol, and can only be ruled by one who knows and serves Jehovah, not one that worships an image made by hand”.
