DELLTA Northerners have vowed not to vote for the All Progressives Congress, APC, gubernatorial candidate in Delta State, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
Delta Northerners are angry that though, Omo-Agege has not become Governor, he has come out to show that he is against the people.
Working under the aegis of “APC, Delta North” some aggrieved individuals described Omo-Agege as clannish and selfish.
Chairman of the group, Chief Sunday Okoro said, “the fact that Senator Omo-Agege is against the emergence of Lauretta Onochie as Chairman, Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, shows what he will do with our people when he becomes Governor.
“Imagine Omo-Agege boasting that our Leader, President Mohammadu Buhari did not consult him before nominating our daughter for the NDDC job, who is he that Mr. President must take orders from him?
“We, the members of APC Delta North will work against him the way he is working against our people.
“He is fighting the people of Delta North and he wants our votes, it is impossible.
“He is fighting our leaders and he expects to get our votes; no Delta Northerner will vote for him because he has no respect for our people, including our traditional rulers.”
They stated that they are already sensitising their members to shift their support from Omo-Agege because of his clannish attitude, saying that someone with a large heart should govern Delta State because of its multi-ethnic nature.
Mr. Sylvester Okoro who said that he is a strong member of the APC said, “we know that Omo-Agege does not like our people. He only gave us appointments because he wants to use us for his selfish agenda.
“Our leaders have seen through him that is why nobody is following him around in his kangaroo campaign.”
