APC Expels Omo-Agege
- Tells DSS To Arrest Senator
The senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Ovie Omo-Agege, has been expelled by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Omo-Agege, who is also a senatorial candidate for the 2019 general election, was expelled for alleged “unabated involvement in anti-party activities”.
The decision to expel the Senator followed an emergency meeting of the State Working Committee (SWC ) in Asaba on Wednesday led by Cyril Abeye Ogodo.
The APC further urged the Department of States Security and the Police to arrest and prosecute “Senator Omo-Agege, Prophet Jones Erue and others for impersonation and others actions calculated to breach public peace.”
A statement titled ‘Delta APC Expels Senator Ovie Omo-Agege’, signed by the party’s Legal Adviser, Dennis Nwanokwai Esq, read in part: “The latest of such activities relates to the hijack of primaries panel members and materials sent from the national secretariat to conduct primaries in the state and deploying same to conduct unauthorised parallel primaries.
“Others are the manipulation and tampering of delegates’ lists and the use of thugs to harass and deprive authentic delegates from access to primaries venues, all that in conjunction with Prophet Jones Erue and others who have earlier been expelled from our party.
“The expulsion of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is with immediate effect. The SWC also resolved to petition the security services, including the Police and DSS to arrest and prosecute Senator Omo-Agege, Prophet Jones Erue and others for impersonation and others actions calculated to breach public peace.”
