Ovie Omo-Agege, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Delta State and deputy president of the 9th Senate, has charged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state with atrocious corruption.
Omo-Agege won the APC primary held in May of this year with a total of 1,190 votes, making him the party’s candidate for governorship in the state.
The lawmaker said in a string of tweets on Thursday that the state’s ruling party was ignorant of developmental politics.
He claimed the Okowa-led administration had squandered state resources and attributed the underdevelopment in Delta State to the party’s mediocrity and immorality.
He added that the ruling party had outlived its usefulness and predicted that the APC would win the election the next year.

The tweets read: “Gradually consumed by politics of hate, exclusion and arrogance, Deltans, including many within the PDP itself, now overwhelmingly agree that the PDP has outlived its usefulness.
“There is a broad consensus that the PDP has mismanaged our resources and consigned Delta to permanent underdevelopment, as it has no vision for developmental politics.”
“Daily, the PDP sacrifices merit, professionalism and decency on the altars of mediocrity and immorality. They have sailed the ship of our State into troubled waters. We are rapidly losing our place in the comity of States as violence, cultism and all sorts of mafia-style behaviors now reign freely in our communities.
“Our values of respect, handwork, integrity and self- worth are being speedily eroded. In all of these, the Delta PDP does not care. In fact, the few unrepentant controllers of its soul are recklessly plotting to extend its hold on power through electoral corruption.”
