Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, Deputy President of the Senate and governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 governorship election in Delta State, has felicitated with those that emerged victorious in the party’s primaries.
In a statement by Ima Niboro, Director, Communications and Media Strategy, Ovie Omo-Agege Campaign Organisation, he expressed confidence that the winners would defeat the PDP in Delta in the various elections next year.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the APC had adopted Sen. Peter Nwaoboshi unopposed as its Delta North Senatorial District candidate for the 2023 senatorial elections.
Other senatorial aspirants returned unopposed by the party are Chief Ede Dafinone and Chief Joel-Onowakpo Thomas for Delta Central and Delta South senatorial districts respectively.
Mr Francis Waive was also elected the party’s candidate for Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu Federal Constituency.
Omo-Agege congratulated other APC candidates in other federal constituencies and state assembly seats in the state.
He described the APC primaries as a sign of good things to come in the state.
According to him, the outcome of the elections is a victory for the Delta APC family, as it has demonstrated the capacity to work together for the good of the party and the state as a whole.
Their mandates, he noted, should be seen as a collective effort, adding that they should unite APC members in the overall interest of the party in the 2023 general elections.
“The outcome of the primaries will best be described as no victor no vanquished, as all the aspirants gave a good account of themselves and congratulated each other for a good contest,” he said.
He lauded the leadership of the party for ensuring the success of the primary election and for effectively mobilizing its members to participate fully in the electoral process.(NAN)
