Delta 2023: We are working with ruling party members to deliver Omo-Agege – says Orubebe
By Kelvin Ohoror
Former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe, has revealed that some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State are working for the success of the All Progressive Congress governorship candidate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
Elder Orubebe, who dumped the PDP few weeks ago, is the Director-General of the APC governorship campaign organisation in the state.
Speaking in Asaba at the meeting of Delta North APC, where Friday Osanebi, the deputy governorship candidate was unveiled, Orubebe said the APC was on a mission to rescue Delta with Omo-Agege as the leader.
The former minister said he had been talking with PDP members who had indicated interest to work for APC as they had become dissatisfied with their party led by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

He enjoined APC members to close ranks, forget the past and work with unity of purpose to ensure victory for the Omo-Agege/Osanebi ticket in 2023.
Orubebe said he took it upon himself to meet personally with aggrieved leaders of APC when he joined the party, urging all to bury the hatchet and move forward.
Unveiling the deputy governorship candidate, former speaker of the state House of Assembly, Victor Ochei, described Hon. Friday Osanebi as a political asset who has become a huge plus for the party.
