Omo-Agege Asks Atiku, Okowa To Step Down For Equity

Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Deputy Senate President and Delta gubernatorial candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, to step down.

Ima Niboro, Director, Communications and Media Strategy, Delta APC Gubernatorial Campaign Council, said Omo-Agege hinged his demand on the need for equity, insisting that by contesting the polls when a northerner is about to complete eight years in office, the PDP presidential candidate has shown that he lacks the locus to preach equity, fairness, justice, and integrity.

Omo-Agege, also the Delta State Coordinator, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, argued that Okowa had betrayed the trust reposed by becoming a Vice Presidential Candidate of PDP on him by his colleagues and the entire South.
