Contrary to what Chief Ighoyota Amori wants his gullible supporters to believe and despite PDP petition in Vanguard today, the Obaisi of Urhobo land and Senator-elect, Delta Central Senatorial District, Barr. Ovie Omo-Agege has just received his Certificate of Return from INEC’s National Commissioner in charge of South South, Dr. Mohammed Mustapha Lecky in a brief ceremony at INEC Headquarters in Abuja today.
Since the judgement of the Appeal Court on 19th December 2015 which declared Omo-Agege of the Labour Party as the winner of the Delta Central Senatorial election of 2015 and particularly during the weekend in Eku, the usurper boasted that Omo-Agege and the Labour Party will never get the CTC of the judgement and that the Certificate of Return will, also never be issued to Ovie Omo-Agege as the duly elected Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District, however, have also prove him wrong as he has collected the only valid Certificate of Return for Delta Central Senatorial District.
The Court of Appeal judgment ordered INEC to nullify and void the Certificate of Return it issued to Chief Ighoyota Amori of the People’s Democratic Party as winner of the Delta Central Senatorial District election conducted by INEC on March 28, 2015 and April 25, 2015 as senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District and issue Barr. Ovie Omo-Agege with a new Certificate of Return, as the duly elected Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District of Delta state. And that is what INEC has done today.
In a press statement the Mr Godwin Anaughe Director, Communications and Strategy,Ovie Omo-Agege Campaign Organisation, stated that, “with this development, there is no doubt anymore that only Obaisi (Barr.) Ovie Omo-Agege can claim to be the true Urhobo senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Anyone else who claim to be a senator representing Delta Central is an impersonator.
“You all know that it is impossible to shave a man’s head in his absence. Today we have proved that to be true and those who think they can shave Omo-Agege’s head in his absence have failed. God has once again shamed them. This is a divine project and no evil plot can stop it now.
He added that; “let it be known to that there are no conflicts or judicial absurdities in the judgement of the Appeal with respect to the Delta Central Senatorial Election. Neither has the judgement generated any political crisis and legislative chaos as claimed by the Delta State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in their petition in Vanguard today.
“That petition is not worth the paper it is printed on. It is only in the figment of imagination of the usurpers that such exit. The judgement was celebrated widely and no one can discredit it now.
“This judgement and the order contained in it are very clear to discerning minds; and it is the final world on this election. Today, INEC has executed the lawful final order of the court and there is no going back,” he noted.
