The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has once again urged his people to stand still to ensure their vote counts in the forthcoming elections.
Omo-Agege made the call while speaking to some of his constituents in Oviri- Ogor community, Ughelli North LGA.
The deputy senate president said all citizens must ensure that their votes are protected during and after the march 6, 2021 LGA elections.
Senator Omo Agege said that elections can only be rigged when true electorates refuse to take a stand in the polls.
According to him:
They will tell you that during local government elections, they will write results, that is a lie. They can only write results or rig the election when everybody goes to sleep. So come out that day and protect your vote.
He however charged his people of the All Progressives Congress to be law abiding in their actions and urged them to focus on peace and tranquillity while the process is in progress.
Omo-Agege while speaking at the grand commissioning of the 20 units stores at the Oviri-Ogor Market, reminded his constituents of his campaign promises, emphasizing that by their agreement, he will always prioritize the provision of basic amenities for them.
In his words:
You voted for me, therefore, one of my responsibilities is to provide for your social needs. That is my contractual agreement which I hope to follow to the fullest,
He assured them of the completion of the abandoned Oviri-Ogor-Edjekota Road, and provision of street lights and transformers in the locality.
But in a rather shocking turn, the senate president encouraged constituents to take advantage of the ongoing APC revalidation and registration exercise, hinging on the fact that it qualifies them to benefit from the Federal Government Social Investment Program.
