Immediate-past Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, last night boasted that President Bola Tinubu would serve two terms in office and would turn the fortunes of the country better.
Omo-Agege gave the assurances in Ughelli during the homecoming reception organised for him by the leadership and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State.

Addressing the mammoth crowd that turned up for his homecoming at Oil City Motel, Ughelli, he said when President Tinubu came to power, the economy was in the doldrums, with the cost of the dollar out of control, adding that Tinubu put his foot down and things started taking shape.
“When he started, we all saw the confidence, we saw the economic stand he took; the dollar spiralled out of control but the Asiwaju, that we always know, has put his foot down and now things are taking shape. This is just the beginning.

“I am sure he will succeed. All we need is to pray for him. He is our own. When Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu succeeds, we all succeed. When it is good for him, it is also good for us. So, please, let us continue to pray for him and let us continue to protect him,” he said.
“He has a mandate; some say it is four years but we believe it is a mandate of eight years and we know in that eight years, he is going to turn everything around for good in this country,” he said.

Senator Omo-Agege thanked all members of the party in the state for the solidarity and support he enjoyed from them all these years and urged them not to lose hope, assuring that the party, though did not win the governorship seat made an impact in the 2023 elections.
He recalled that the party won two senatorial districts and House of Representatives seats and that of the House of Assembly in the state, adding that it was unprecedented in the history of Delta State.

“It had never happened before. So, I, therefore, thanked the leadership of the party, both at the national and state as well as the local governments and wards levels for their support,” he added.
The senator representing Delta Central and Chairman of the reception, Senator Ede Dafinone recounted the exploits of the former Deputy President of the Senate, which he described as selfless service, and dedication to not only the people of the state but to Nigerian as a whole.

“I am proud to celebrate our own DSP, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege and to welcome him home. He has done us proud, as a legislator and as a leader. He had an exemplary performance in the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Dr. Felix Morka, noted Omo-Agege served with passion and selflessly as testified by those who spoke at the event.
