The Deputy President of the Senate and governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in Delta State, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that if elected in 2023, he would not seek to probe the incumbent government of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Ireporter reported that Omo-Agege disclosed this on Thursday in Patani, the first stop on his campaign train to the Delta South senatorial district.
He stated that despite the fact that there is nothing on the ground to justify the over N3.5 trillion in receipts that have flowed into Delta state over the last seven and a half years, he will not be distracted by seeking vengeance against Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
Instead, he said he would press on with the task at hand and ensure that all developmental gaps left by the Okowa-led PDP were filled in order for the state to progress.
Omo-Agege also addressed rumors that Okowa has interests in a newly licensed bank, saying that the governor should hand over the N235 billion recently paid to the state as 13 percent derivation arrears and not storing it in the bank, if the allegations were true.
He said, “My government will not seek vendetta against Governor Okowa and his PDP; we will not be distracted by looking back at their misgovernance but will hit the ground running to develop Delta State. He should however, hand over the balance of N235 billion with him.”
