The Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has been declared the gubernatorial candidate of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State.

Omo-Agege was the sole aspirant in the primaries.

He polled a total of 1,190 votes and was returned unopposed by a total of 1,235 accredited delegates of the party at the APC governorship primaries held on Thursday at Federal College of Education (FCE), Asaba, the state capital.

Announcing the results, the APC Returning Officer, Oyibo Nwaneri, declared him as the winner, having polled the majority of the votes cast.

In his acceptance speech, Mr Omo-Agege expressed joy over the smooth conduct of the primaries and thanked his supporters and the entire APC family in Delta.

“Today, the APC in Delta has spoken with one voice. We may have had our differences in the past, but we have been able to reconcile ourselves.

“With my emergence as the party flag bearer for the 2023 governorship in Delta, the APC is very determined to take over the reign of affairs in Delta.

“And we are prepared to achieve that with the support of our members and the people of Delta.”
