Speaking at Olomu ward 11, Omo-Agege stated that the election is not about the PDP or APC, but about those who love the Urhobo nation.
He urged the Urhobo people to take advantage of the several projects which President Buhari’s administration has executed in the district and key into the opportunity of Urhobo to produce a ranking senator by voting for all candidates of the All Progressives Congress in the general elections.

He reeled out some of the strategic projects which the President Buhari has completed and ongoing in Urhobo land, stressing that the completion of the railway project will open Delta state up for business.
“The railway project was abandoned by the past administration. But as a Senator, I can tell you that I persuade President Buhari to complete the project and all the overhead bridges.
The Senator also stressed that it was Buhari’s administration who worked hard to ensure that the pension of DSC workers was paid as well as put in motion the resuscitation of the steel plant.

Senator Omo-Agege urged the Urhobos to vote massively for President Buhari if they want more projects and also complete the ongoing federal project in the state. According to him, “if you want me to go back to the Senate as a ranking Senator, then you must cast your vote for President Buhari, he said.”
