Delta Guber: Omo-Agege expresses confidence in winning

The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has expressed confidence in winning.

He accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of orchestrating attacks in the areas where violence has been reported.

Omo-Agege, who is the Deputy Senate President, voted around 11:11a.m at unit 19, Orhomurun Ward 2, in Orogun, Ughelli North council area.

Addressing newsmen, he said: “The PDP entered this contest with a predetermination to ensure that attacks are launched in polling units across the state, most especially here in Delta Central to destroy the votes.

“Since morning, we’ve received reports of attacks in Evwreni. We’ve received the same in Ughelli South, at Oteri, Ughelli and we understand that some mischief has been going on since last night at Gbaramatu-Oporoza, Warri Southwest.

“We are getting security agents to respond. They are responding but it does appear that they are a bit overwhelmed.

“Here we are out trying to protect our zone, trying to protect our votes. We have votes to protect, they don’t have votes to protect so they will just attack, attack and attack.

“Be that as it may, we are very confident that at the end of the day, we will be declared the next governor of Delta state”.

Calling on Deltans to come out to cast their votes, the gubernatorial candidate said, “I am excited to have had the privilege and opportunity to have cast my vote. Today is the big day.

“For so long we have been appealing, going to all nooks and crannies of the state to market our agenda. The die is cast, today is the day. I have cast my vote.

“The assessment so far, we believe we are going to win, no doubt about that. That has been the feelers on the ground for more than a month.

“The momentum was there all along coming into the polling today. So I expect that at the end of the day, we will be declared the winner”.
