Omo-Agege never hijacked APC revalidation, says aide, Onokpite

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Legislative Aide to the Deputy President of the Senate, Comrade Edafe Onokpite, yesterday, defended his boss, Obaisi Ovie Omo-Agege over allegation of hijacking the materials for revalidation and registration exercise in Delta.

The allegations came when the Delta State chapter of the APC announced the suspension of the party’s registration and revalidation exercise in the state by the National Caretaker Committee of the party.

The aide described the statement on his boss as false and cooked story to malign the name of the Deputy President of the Senate.

Onokpite in a press statement, said it is inconsequential for any reasonable person to think that the APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Jones Erue connived with the Distinguished Deputy President of the Senate of Nigeria, Obaisi Ovie Omo-Agege and diverted materials for the exercise, saying that the allegations is an infigment of the writer’s imagination and must be discarded.

Onokpite said the allegations against his boss were mere distractions to overlook plans by some political leaders with desperate political intentions to remove the state party chairman, Jones Erue by all means, adding that since they could not succeed hence there is this allegations of hijacking of registration and revalidation exercise.

He said if others do, he cannot wait and allow this fabricated cheap blackmail purportedly cooked by some leaders to frustrate the registration exercise continue to disabuse the minds of party faithful against his boss for their personal interest and goals.

Onokpite said, “We will not succumb to this unfounded story trending in both social media, online and newspapers, l had expected that the Deputy President of the Senate should be appreciated for his uncommon achievements and purposeful representation and not to smear his name over what he knows nothing about.

“How could the same person prior the validation exercise calling on Deltans to come out and register and even extends his call to other political parties, now turn around to hijack the same exercise he was appealing to members to turn out for, this is unimaginable and cannot be accepted, because the allegations was dead on arrival.

“It is shocking that some persons not comfortable with the exercise had fed some party leaders and stakeholders outside the State with cook stories that the State Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Party, Jones Ode Erue and His Execellency, the Deputy President of the Senate had diverted materials for the exercise, statement that is not true.”
