Ovie Omo-Agege, in a statement signed by his Senior Legislative Aide, Prince Efe Duku, and made available to news men, in Warri, Delta State, maintained that his purported expulsion from the Delta APC by the Chief Cyril Ogodo-led faction was not only rascally, but defamatory.
“This is yet another laughable and senseless act of impunity, rascality and defamation against Senator Ovie Omo-Agege by these disruptive elements sponsored by Olorogun Otega Emerhor, who has also been expelled from the APC by our SWC.
“We make haste to say that by their valid, subsisting and unchallenged expulsion from the Delta APC by the only duly recognized SWC in Delta, Ogodo, Emerhor and their co-travelers are no longer in the Delta APC.
“It is only in Ogodo and Emerhor’s fantasyland that persons who are not members or executives of any known party would announce with criminal brazenness that they have expelled a sitting Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from his own party!
“That itself further confirms why the SWC moved against these interlopers who are bent on sabotaging the APC in Delta State simply because Senator Omo-Agege and other APC leaders in Delta rejected their mercantile brand of politics.
“It is a fact that Emerhor was duly expelled from the APC for allegedly engaging in serious offences, including conducting or participating in an illegal senatorial primary election in the name of APC, and without lawful authorization.
