I’ll retrieve my stolen mandate from Sheriff, Omo-Agege

I’ll retrieve my stolen mandate from Sheriff, Omo-Agege

Ovie Omo-Agege, the deputy president of the Senate, has vowed to retrieve his stolen mandate from the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sheriff Oborevwori, hammering that he won the election clean and clear.

Omo-Agege made the vow on Wednesday while granting an audience to his constituents from Delta Central, Ndokwa over the facilitation of the Federal University of Medical and Health Sciences in Kwale community.

He said he is determined to fight to retrieve his mandate all the way because the real valid votes scored by him in the election, are more than enough to declare him as the governor-elect.

According to him, the result declared by INEC, was a ruse that cannot stand the test of litigation.

“All the manipulations carried out by PDP in collaboration with some staff of INEC, have been exposed and will be used as exhibits in the court of law. I won the Delta governorship election conducted in March this year by INEC clean and clear.

Recall that Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had in the election conducted on March 18, 2023, declared Oborevwori of PDP as a winner with 360,234 votes, which was over 120, 000 votes above 240,229 votes reportedly scored by Omo-Agege in the election.

Speaking at the University of Medical and Health Sciences in Kwale community, Omo-Agege informed that he made the facilitation without any consultation or collaboration with anybody in Delta State.

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu for the feat while thanking Mercy Almona – Isei led a delegation from Ndokwa/Ukwuani that compensation should not be attached to the 100 hectares of land donated for the university, saying “the issue of ownership of shrine or farm should not arise from any quarters.
