Spokesperson of Delta State Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, has berated the leadership of opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state over the purported expulsion of one of the pillars of the party, Dr. Cairo Ojuogboh.
Oghenesivbe in a statement on in Asaba said, “Suspending the APC scribe, Ojuogboh, for speaking the truth and stating the obvious will neither be the solution to the collapse of the party in the state nor be the cure to the odious negative public image of their failed gubernatorial candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.”
The PDP campaign mouthpiece noted that if not for the disgraceful anti party activities of some disloyal and unreliable members of the PDP in the state during the governorship election, Agege and APC would have gone without winning one local government.
He urged the State Chairman of PDP, Kingsley Esiso and his executive members to take proactive steps through disciplinary measures against betrayers of the party.
Oghenesivbe who is also the Executive Assistant on Communications to Delta State Governor Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, noted that “In a sane society, Senator Agege ought to be gnashing his teeth in prison for stealing Mace in the National Assembly, a criminal act captured live on national television, and for which he was arrested by security agents.
He, however regretted noting that, “Agege was later left off the hook by the unpatriotic cabal known as the ‘Buharis’ and the failed APC national government that claimed to have won the 2023 presidential election as a result of bad governance with N77 trillion embarrassing debt profile.”
He commended the political sagacity of Dr. Ojuogboh, especially for what he referred to as,
“ his courage to condemn Senator Agege’s large appetite for sharp practices, crude politics, arrogance, primitive pride and despotic leadership style, which was why the good people of Delta State voted against APC, and coupled with the fact that ‘Igbe water spirit worship’ cannot and will never be allowed by Deltans to replace God’s holy altar in Government House Asaba.”
“APC Delta is fast collapsing and its members in disarray because of the despotic leadership style of the self-acclaimed leader and failed governorship candidate, Senator Augustine Omo-Agege, and the clueless state executive members of the party.
“Dr Cairo Ojuogboh, is the moral compass of Delta APC, and instead of working with him to purge the unproductive leadership system of Senator Agege, the party leadership decided to involve itself in a shameful stomach infrastructure politics, and dishonourably became subservient to Agege by unjustly expelling one of their best, Dr Ojuogboh from the party for doing the needful to safe the party from total collapse in the state.
“Let me make it categorically clear that the expulsion of Dr. Ojuogboh, will never cure the poor and negative public image bedeviling the outgoing Senator Agege, the mace snatcher and Spiritual Leader of Igbe Marine Spirit Worshippers in Delta State.
“Neither will getting Dr. Ojuogboh out of the way ever solve the complex and multifaceted prolonged internal leadership cold war crashing Delta APC. Rather, their immature decision will obviously wreck Delta APC and further demarket Senator Agege and his stomach infrastructure loyalists in the State Exco of their failed APC.
“It is glaring via PDP landslide victory at the polls that the Governor-Elect, His Excellency, Rt Hon Sheriff Francis Oborevwori, JP, was not a match for any of the opposition parties governorship candidates in the state, in terms of integrity, pedigree, competence, humility, popularity and leadership charisma.
“Take this to the bank, Oborevwori will defeat Senator Agege and APC again and again should he decide to run again in 2027,” Oghenesivbe predicted.
