Sen. Omo-Agege is the best and the only Arsenal APC can use to dislodge the ill inflected PDP led Government in Delta State. We therefore call on all sons and daughters of Ukwuani nation to stand firm with the erudite lawmaker, who has distinguished himself as the voice of the voiceless
Having worked regrettably with some People’s Democratic Party leaders, I concluded by saying that, most of them are not worthy of such services I rendered selflessly before l left Nigeria to the United States of America. Since then, I have not failed to follow political trends in Nigeria especially in our dear State, Delta.
Meanwhile, my incessant interest in politics is as a result of the astute leadership qualities being display by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Deputy President of the Senate, whom I have had a robust encounter with.
His giant strides in leadership especially the zeal to elevate the pains and sufferings of Deltans from the shackle of the PDP led Government in the State, is a prove of his promises made during electioneering campaign in the last five years-demonstrating practical and sincere approach to the plight of the citizenry.
Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has not only represented the Delta Central alone but the entire Delta State Senatorial district. This he has done proactively, by engaging young promising Deltans who may become shining stars in the future. His leadership qualities has brought about a well-structured and organised APC faithful, whose political consciousness have now been re-awakened. He has simply changed the narratives of the common saying – ‘Politics is a dirty game’
But, for a good political philosopher, politics is a good venture with spirited mind of purpose. This is obtainable only with men who fear God and believe in immortality.
Intrusively, Orogun people are very privileged with the most outstanding senator in the history of the Urhobo Nation, especially with the proposed Federal polytechnic, already being passed into law by the 9th National Assembly. This alone would create job opportunities and economic expansion across South-South States. Furthermore, it was same Sen. Omo-Agege’s political-goodwill that resulted to the awarding of a contract for the rehabilitation and dualisation of the dilapidated Sapele Agbor Federal road which is currently ongoing from Sapele, Eku, Sanubi, Abraka down to Agbor.
Some other laudable achievements in his name include installation of transformers, Solar Street light and solar water system across all the communities that make up Delta Central. He has given palliatives to his people across Delta central, including cash, bags of rice, and other food items to the tune of 84M. Indeed, this is God using the Senator to change lives.
Expectantly, I recently had the opportunity to visit the Senator in Abuja, upon my arrival to the country. And from our discussions and idea we both exchanged, he strongly opines his visions and plans for Deltans- transformational plans. It is for this reason, I boldly also plan to use my resources to massively mobilize the Ukwuani indigenes, young and old, far and near, home and abroad through my foundation, Victor Ngozi Nuri, (VNN) as a way of consolidating and supporting the vision of this great leader when he finally declare his intention to the highest office in the state before 2023.
This, I have started demonstrating by giving out cartons of needles, 15 motorcycles to unskilled youths, food stuff to the old and scholarship to some of the best and indigent students within Obiaruku and Ukwuani local government area. This Scholarship scheme earlier mentioned is set to commence for this year, 2020 with 15 beneficiaries selected from different secondary schools within the local government and will be sponsored up to Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE). These are my contributions in support of the vision of the distinguished senator.
I humbly believe great leaders should be supported, as it is also done everywhere in the world. Truly, governance are not left in the hands of leaders alone, it is a collective effort of all.
The Deputy President of the Senate made history as the first and only Senator to represent Delta Central (Urhobos) for two consecutive times. Today, he has set the pace for generations unborn to follow in Nigerian politics, breaking the barrier of ethnocentrism and giving young Deltans (across the three senatorial district), an opportunity to taste Federal appointments. The first, in the history of the South-South region.
Moreover, a good knowledge of the DSP and profiling academically may give his equals a second thought of his true identify and strides in leadership. A quick look at his background. Senator Omo-Agege was born into the temple of justice. His late father, Justice James Omo-Agege was the first Chief Judge of Delta State and the Pioneer chairman of the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission.
The Senator who started his early education at St Georges Grammar School, Obinomba in 1963 proceeded to the prestigious University of Benin, where he studied law, and upon graduation in 1986, he went for the compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in the Nigerian Police Force, Ilorin. Called to the Nigeria Bar Association as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. He also obtained a Master’s degree in Tulene University, New Orleans in the United States of America. A man with vast international experience cum proven track records in leadership.
As a lawyer of International repute, who dealt with litigation for decades proved himself to be patriotic in duty. It could be noted that Senator Omo-Agege began his legal journey in PAK OKUPA & CO LAW FIRM in Lagos and later Co-founded Agege and Co law firm in 1989. By 1990, he moved into the United States of America where he also practiced law as a foreign solicitor in Charles Agege & Co law firm. In 1992 he was called into the State of California Bar and the United State of America Washington DC.
With passion for the profession and reading in general. He founded a law firm called Agege & Associate, which later merged into Agege & Esin in 1996. He also worked closely with the Executive Arm of Government when he was appointed in 2003 as the Executive Personal Assistant to then Governor of Delta State, Chief James Onanefe Ibori. Due to his immense contributions and doggedness to duty, he was elevated in 2005 to the position of a Commissioner of Special Duties and in 2007, Secretary to the State Government (SSG). Indeed, of what other experience would a man need to govern Delta state, as governor. Certainly, none.
Finally, his achievements as a lawmaker remains immeasurable. In his four years as a Legislator, he has toppled the achievements and different records. Truly, Sen. Omo-Agege is the best and the only Arsenal APC can use to dislodge the ill inflected PDP led Government in Delta State. We therefore call on all sons and daughters of Ukwuani nation to stand firmly with the erudite lawmaker who has distinguished himself as the voice of the voiceless.
