…Pays Courtesy visits to Clergymen, Ibo Union and Community Leaders in 8 LGAs
The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) senatorial candidate for the Delta Central Senatorial District, Mr. Peters Omaruaye, along with the party’s candidates for Okpe Uvwie and Sapele federal constituency (Barrister Amos Ejedegba) and Okpe state constituency (Olorogun Otis Agbaminor), embarked on a series of consultations ahead of the 2023 general elections. On Sunday, January 29th, 2023, the four political leaders visited clergymen, members of the Ibo Union, and community leaders across eight local government areas in Delta State. The goal was to secure their support for the upcoming election.
Mr. Omaruaye, who is a major opposition candidate in Delta, called on Deltans to work together to retrieve their stolen mandate in the election and establish a leadership that can steer the state out of its current predicament. He made this statement during a visit to the leadership of the Urhobo community group at St. Peters Catholic Church in Okuokoko.
At the visit, Mr. Omaruaye stressed the importance of the church’s involvement in politics. He pointed out that the church is an integral part of society and that what happens in society directly affects the church. He urged Christians to take an active role in politics, stating that there is no longer any need for the church to remain on the sidelines.
He went on to say that the Ogboru political family has won elections in the past, but those victories have been denied due to the use of incident forms. However, President Buhari has taken steps to ensure that votes are counted fairly in future elections.
APGA Campaign Team Visits Ugboroke
The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) campaign team recently visited Ugboroke to meet with pastors from various churches in the area. During the visit, Mr. Peters Omaruaye, the APGA senatorial candidate for the Delta Central Senatorial District, shared his legislative agenda with the 13 representatives of different churches who attended the meeting. He emphasized the importance of developing the senatorial district in line with the Jubilee Agenda, which seeks to restore what was lost in the past.
The spokespersons for the Urhobo community and the Ugboroke pastors responded by expressing their support for APGA and its candidates in Delta State. They stated that Deltans have suffered greatly under the ruling party’s failure to fulfill its constitutional obligation to ensure that national resources benefit the people. They added that they are now throwing their support behind APGA in the upcoming election.
