Omo-Agege empowers party faithful with cars, tricycles
By Okies Veeky
SENATOR Ovie Omo-Agege, Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District and Deputy Senate President recently empowered some of his party men in his constituency with eight brand new cars, 45 tricycles, 175 motorcycles and 186 grinding machines.
Those who benefited from the empowerment programme that cuts across the eight local government areas that make up Delta Central Senatorial District include Ward chairmen, secretaries, women and youths leaders among others.
Jimmy Omo-Agege, who represented Senator Omo-Agege at the empowerment programme in Orhomuru, Orogun, the hometown of the Deputy Senate President in Ughelli North Local Government Area said that sustainable empowerment of the people was key to a safer and better society.
According to him: “It is my resolve to represent my people with the very best of my capabilities and in doing so, empowerment programmes like this one is one of the ways in which we can reach out to the rural people and help them to be self-sufficient.”
In his comments, Chief Francis Atanomeyovwi, Director General, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege Campaign Organization disclosed that the empowerment programme was carried out to express appreciation to APC members in the Senatorial District for voting for DSP Omo-Agege and President Muhammad Buhari.
Chief Atanomeyovwi said that the empowerment was supposed to have been done before the 2019 general elections but was postponed due to the pressures of the elections, adding, “those who have worked hard to ensure that Senator Omo-Agege and President Buhari won the last election are been appreciated today.”
He said that the next empowerment programme which will take place in the second tenure of Senator Omo-Agege would be greater than the first one.
The Director General of the Senator Omo-Agege Campaign Organization commended President Buhari for ensuring that Senator Omo-Agege and Barrister Festus Keyamo, who are both from Delta, were given prominent positions in his government.
He called on the beneficiaries to put the items into judicious use just as he tasked them to take the APC campaigns to all the nooks and crannies of the state.
One of the beneficiaries Mrs Oghenetejiri Okoro, wife to late Felix Okoro, an APC member who died sometimes last year, told the Urhobo Voice that she was happy for the gesture stressing that she will use proceeds from the tricycle to feed her children.
Another beneficiary who smiled home with a grinding machine, Mrs Confidence Ajaghor, APC LGA Woman leader, Uvwie commended Senator Omo-Agege for remembering them, but appealed to him to do more for the women in his next empowerment.
