His words: “I am here today to present myself to the Delta South Senatorial District executives by the mandate of our leader, DSP Ovie Omo-Agege, that I should contest for the Delta South Senatorial District seat come 2023 General Elections.

“I have also accepted his order to contest for the Senate seat to represent the good people of Delta South Senatorial because I also believe that we must join hands together to win all the elections in Delta State come 2023.

“When we work together as a group and win election at all levels the benefit will be more for us. And we are ready and prepared to win election in Delta State than before.

“I want to say that all of you in Delta South Senatorial District are gate keepers. Please, support us in whatever way you can so that we can win the elections. We are closer to victory than ever.

“All Progressive Congress in Delta State is more united than ever. There should be no doubt in your mind, from what we have been able to do in the party in the last few weeks. You will see that we did not allow people who will destroy us to contest positions in the party.
