The Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, has carpeted online news medium, Sahara Reporters, over a report in which the medium alleged that the Delta State APC Registration exercise ended in chaos with the Deputy Senate President and the party’s State Chairman escaping lynching by the whiskers.
The Constituency Office of the Deputy Senate President described the report “vexatious piece of falsehood.”
The office tersely stated that it is “rather sad that an event that took place in the digital age in the full glare of journalist and eminent Stakeholders of the APC in Delta State can be twisted by some enemies of our Party with the evil intention to mislead the people.
Naturally, the best thing to be done would have been to ignore this mischievous act but we choose to set the records straight because Shakespeare has said that, “to leave an error unrefuted is to create intellectual immorality”.
The office in a rebuttal stated that “the state APC Critical Stakeholders meeting held successfully with over 95% of the invited Stakeholders in attendance.”
Accordingly it said that “the two National Officers assigned to supervise the exercise in Delta State; Barr. Ahmed Ismael (National Youth Leader, Caretaker) and Ms. Stella Okotete (National Woman Leader, Caretaker) were present before they left to witness a similar event in another South-South State. More so, the entire State Registration Panel appointed by the National leadership of our Party led by Hon. Anyaegbu Austin Wilson, Chairman of the Delta State Panel were all in attendance.”
While accusing a party chieftain, Chief Great Ogboru, of divisive acts, the APC warned him against allowing himself to be used as a tool to sponsoring confusion and unnecessary wranglings.
It encouraged members to see the report by Sahara Reporters as the handiwork of enemies of the party.
