Deputy Senate President and Delta State All Progressives Congress , APC, Governorship candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has indicted his Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, opponent, Sheriff Oborevwori, for chasing away companies and businesses that once boosted the economy of the State through organized criminal extortion, aka “deve.”

According to him, it was Oborevwori that started the illegal and unregulated taxation of companies and businesses in the Osubi area, which rapidly spread to Uwvie and then other parts of the state.

Senator Omo-Agege, while speaking at Otor-Udu, Ovwian and Aladja, during the ongoing ward to ward campaigns of the APC, revealed that the widespread illegal taxation and general intimidation of private businesses in the state caused many of them to fold up or relocate from Delta.

He told the mammoth crowd of party faithful and supporters that the Delta State Governorship election scheduled to hold early March this year is too important to the destiny Delta State to be left in the hands of thugs and persons of dubious character.

He said the next governor should be somebody who is academically qualified, mentally equipped, and one who has an interest in the development of the economy of the State. “At this critical stage, Delta does not need a governor who has no basic knowledge of Development Economics that can design policies that positively impact the citizens of the State.

“Deltans do not need the chairman or leader of touts who had been actively involved in chasing away investors that were doing business here, in the name of ‘Deve’.”

He described Delta Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as ”a very wicked man who does not have the interest of Deltans at heart.” It is for this reason, he added, among all the Urhobo sons and daughters who served in his government, “he chose a tout and ‘Deve’ Collector to succeed him.”

It is time to chase PDP out of Delta State!!!
