President general of the revered Niger Delta Socio Cultural Group under the aegis of Delta Ijaw Youth Movement for Political Advancement (DIYMPA), Amb. John Dekawei has congratulated His Excellency, the deputy Senate president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,  Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, the Obarisi of Urhobo land on his victory as the All Progressives Congress (APC) Delta State Governorship flag bearer. 

The youth leader issued the congratulatory message to newsmen via a statement he personally signed, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide yesterday. 

Amb. Dekawei while congratulating Omo-Agege had described him as a symbol of development, stressing that if he can represent Delta central as their Senator within a short period of time and  has  brought so much development to his people and Delta State, Dekawei said with Omo-Agege as Governor of Delta State, he believes that the deputy Senate president will transform Delta to the envy of all.

“The state of development in Delta State is begging for better ideas. Delta State should be comparable to the most developed amongst states in Nigeria. In terms of comparative development, Delta State has little or nothing to show for its enormous fiscal allocations from the federation account and natural resources. It is indubitable that there is a clamor for change built on a powerful yearning for a productive, practical, and strategic political direction.

“It is against this background that Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Deputy President of the Senate (DSP) and Senator representing Delta State Central senatorial district, is a public servant that is graced beyond measure on matters of public policy, effective representation, and good governance. Omo-Agege, has a track record and incredible achievements in just three years as Deputy Senate President (DSP) and the Senator representing Delta Central senatorial district. 

“On assumption of office, Omo-Agege, made a commitment to give a periodic public account of his stewardship at the Senate to his constituents. Premised on the notion that, there can be no accountability without access to elected representatives and the opportunity to speak truth to power, DSP directed that an objective yearly account of his public service and leadership at the Senate be made available to the people of Delta Central and the public.

“Based on anecdotal evidence gleaned from National Assembly records, Omo-Agege holds the record as the most productive Senator elected by Delta Central on core legislative duties, constituency projects, and strategic political engagements. 

“During the second year of his tenure as DSP and Senator representing Delta Central, Omo-Agege secured, facilitated, influenced, and executed more than 90 electrification projects and successfully pursued the federal government approval for the establishment of 1.3 megawatts solar hybrid power plant at the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Ugbomro, Delta State. 

“This was in addition to facilitating the laying of the foundation for the construction of NDPHC/NIPPS injection substation to improve power supply to Orogun town and environs. These verifiable projects were cited and spread across every local government area of Delta Central and benefitting other senatorial district because of its multiplier effects and economies of scale.”

Meanwhile, the young peace ambassador had also lauded Omo-Agege for the Federal Politechnic, Orogun, Delta State  and the approval of the Abraka State Constituency. 

Dekawei continued that the Delta State APC have truly chosen wisely, adding that the deputy Senate president have the political credentials to take Delta State to the promised land.
