To say that the Distinguished Senator’s support for Mr. President is sycophantic and aimed at securing his second term ambition amounts to selective disregard of the events and circumstances that surrounded the election of Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege in the first place. I suppose that such a narrative, senseless and disgustingly objectionable in its entirety, was adopted by those whose only intention was to swindle some gullible minds into believing that the Distinguished Senator fought for his own interest. That is a BIG LIE and such an evil, ill-conceived and totally retrogressive narrative cannot stand! Our Distinguished Senator fought for the interest of millions of good Nigerians and not just for his own people. His mission was simple; to uphold the tenets of democracy and to protect the rule of law. If you have an objection to that, state it in very clear terms!!
If the Distinguished Senator did not depend on a President and Federal Structure to win his election in 2015 – he was initially rigged out and still went to Court to secure his victory- then I wonder why anyone would insinuate that his decision to support the incumbent President is aimed at protecting his second term ambition. What a shambolic dissimulation! The general knowledge in Delta state is that the Distinguished Senator has performed beyond expectations and it is his towering representational excellence coupled with his legislative doggedness, his intellectual capacity, selflessness and unmatched humility that form the basic components of his campaign message in 2019.
As progressives, we all know why the Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege chose to support and stand with the President. PMB is a good man and it is only morally right that a good man be supported by all and sundry. Also, his decision to support the President was aimed at bringing more of Federal presence to Delta Central. The last time I checked, Senator Omo-Agege was actively on President Buhari for more appointments for our people. This is because of his unique relationship with Mr. President and this so-called suspension cannot stop him. Obaisi Ovie Omo-Agege contributed immensely to the several appointments that came to Urhobo nation first as a Distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic representing Delta Central and secondly, as a man who is committed to the growth and development of his people.
His suspension is simply a political witch-hunting by anti-Urhobo elements who connived with their PDP friends in APC robes in the Senate just because they are scared and threatened by the ever-increasing popularity and influence of Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege in National Politics. The MOSOGAR WIZARD is a culprit in this case. Be that as it may, I want the MOSOGAR WIZARD and his cohort of retrogressives to propagate this one and only message from me that no matter their attempt to drag Urhobo nation to the mud by suspending a Distinguished Senator who has been adjudged by the vast majority of the Urhobo people as ‘THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB’, the *Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege shall BOUNCE BACK IN TOTAL VICTORY.*
