The Statement Reads

We Are In Receipt Of Omo-Agege Expulsion From His Ward

When Omo-Agege was expelled, he didn’t appeal it seven days after.

The Local Government has to approve the expulsion, and forwarded it to the state.We are calling on the National leadership of the party to approve Omo-Agege expulsion immediately without delay.

This development shouldn’t in anyway affect members of the party. they should go about their normal business, as the call is for the benefit of the state party. Omo-Agege offences include:

A.He greedily hajacked the party from the ward to the state and personally appoints the Publicity Secretary without consultation from anybody in the state.

B. All the funds sent to the state during the presidential, Senate and governorship, he quarantine the money and never consult with anybody. The money was not used for the purpose it was meant for.

Omo-Agege entered unholy alliance with the Labour Party during the presidential election with the understanding that they will vote for him during the governorship. This action, which we found distasteful affected the party chances in the state.

His alleged link with Igbe confraternity we noticed angered the Church. Because Igbe confraternity was campaigning for him, the Church stopped campaigning for him. This development affected APC chances in Delta state.

His attitude was another factor that angered the Delta APC. All projects coming from the federal were sited in his Senatorial District, Delta Central and other districts never benefitted.

Another issue that affected APC chances was the Maze issue, which the people in the state were not comfortable with. This is also one of the reasons the state didn’t vote the him.

He led the party in Delta North and the entire state into disrepute. opprobrium, and hate, resulting in the abysmal performance of the APC in the Governorship of February 18, 2023.and boasted that Delta North will never get anything from the state if he become the governor.

He created animosity among the ethnic groups, a development that caused disaffection and disunity among members of APC family in the state.
