“It will take a miracle for him running on the platform of the APC to be able to win,” the commissioner stated.
Commissioner for information in Delta, Charles Aniagwu, says Ovie Omo-Agege, the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), needs a miracle to win the state in the 2023 general elections.
According to the Delta commissioner, President Muhammadu Buhari’s APC regime has worsened Mr Omo-Agege’s chances of winning the 2023 governorship election in Delta.
Mr Aniagwu said on Thursday that it would take a miracle for the deputy senate president to win the 2023 governorship election in Delta.
According to him, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is strong and popular in Delta despite the current legal tussle over the party’s authentic governorship candidature.
“Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is someone I have immense respect for, and he knows it because I can actually call him a senior friend because once in a while, we interact. He has all the rights to contest, but he knows that when it comes to Delta, it will take a miracle for him running on the platform of the APC to be able to win,” the commissioner stated.
He added, “This is because apart from the fact that Delta is almost synonymous with the PDP, the performance of Governor Okowa in the last seven and half years has dealt a very big blow to the APC. And the chances of APC in Delta have been further worsened by the abysmal performance of the APC at the national level.”
He further stressed that in 2019, APC had “federal might, yet we taught them a lesson, a bitter one at that.”
“In 2015,” the information commissioner said, “Okowa won 21 local government areas out of 25 and in 2019, in spite of their strength with Omo-Agege, Ogboru, Emerhor, and all of them put together, Okowa won in 23 local government areas.”
Mr Aniagwu further pointed out that Mr Okowa “didn’t just win them in Delta North and Delta South, he went to their stronghold in Delta Central and won in six LGAs out of eight LGAs and what that tells you is that the PDP has continued to expand and deepen its roots across the state.”
