The Deputy President of the Senate, Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege has asked Deltans, particularly the Urhobo people, to keep hope alive.
Omo-Agege gave the charge at Imodje-Orogun, Ughelli-North Local Government Area of Delta State where the APC family hosted him.
The gathering which was originally scheduled to be a political family affair saw various groups coming out to identify with the DSP.
While appreciating the people for their support, Omo-Agege reiterated that his emergence as DSP was the handiwork of God.
He asked the people to continue to support him in prayers saying his vision is to see an Urhobo nation where youths are gainfully employed in one form of legitimate business or the other.
“Don’t force me to make a choice between development and giving you handouts. Handouts don’t mean anything but at the end of the day, what matters is the legacy.
By the grace of God today, I am the Deputy Senate President; I don’t know what would become of me by 2023 but by 2023, I should be able to look back and say this is what I’ve done for my people. I will do what is right; I know what is right because I am not an expatriate.
I am one of you, I Ovie Omo-Agege came from you and I know your pains” he said, adding that the 2021 Budget has several inputs that will address certain developmental gaps across the Senatorial District.
He used the occasion to assure the Orogun people of more dividends of democracy in the coming months.
Earlier, some leaders of the Party, APC, in Orogun Ward 1 and Ward 2 thanked the DSP for bringing Orogun to national fame through his fantastic representation at the National Assembly.
They made demands for more projects and job opportunities for the teeming youths.
Several Party leaders present at the gathering include Chief Emmanuel Ogobene, Barr. Anuku Meshach, Chief Jones Esombi, amongst others.
