Era of intimidation, violence in Nigeria’s politics over: Omo-Agege

Ovie Omo-Agege, the APC governorship candidate in Delta, has said that the era of politics of intimidation and violence was over with the introduction of BVAS machines in the nation’s electoral system.

Mr Omo-Agege, also the deputy president of the Senate, made the remark on Saturday during the party’s ward-to-ward campaign in Uzere, Aviara, and Olomoro communities in Isoko South Local Government Area of the state.

The lawmaker representing Delta Central Senatorial District said the party would resist any attempt by leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to intimidate the APC members in Isoko Land and other parts of the state.

“The politics of intimidation is over. With the introduction of the BVAS machine by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), be rest assured that we buried the politics of intimidation and violence.

 “Let me assure our teeming supporters that there will be adequate security in the next elections. For our supporters and Isoko people who want to vote for APC, come on the days of the elections and vote for us,” he said.

He urged the electorate in Isoko and other parts of the state to turn out en masse to vote for all APC candidates in the presidential, National Assembly, governorship, and state assembly elections, assuring that there would be adequate security.

The lawmaker further assured the people of Delta that their votes would count in the forthcoming elections, adding that the era when election materials were snatched and thumb-printed in political leaders’ homes was gone forever.

At Aviara Kingdom, Mr Omo-Agege told the cheering crowd that his administration resolved and restored the aged-long electrical blackout in the community.

Also, Joel Thomas-Onowhakpo, the APC Delta South Senatorial candidate, urged the state’s people to collect their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVC) ahead of the forthcoming polls.

He appealed to the electorate in Delta South to vote APC and ensure that PDP was relegated in the state.

Mr Thomas-Onowhakpo also urged the people to vote for Mr Omo-Agege as governor, assuring that his administration would bring massive development to all parts of the state.
