The All Progressive Congress (APC), Delta State Chapter, led by Cyril Abeye Ogodo indicated the party has expelled Ovie Omo-Agege who represents Delta Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly.
This decision was made during an emergency meeting of the State Working Committee (SWC) in Asaba on Wednesday with the reason being Omo-Agege’s “unabated involvement in anti-party activities”.
A statement titled “Delta APC Expels Senator Ovie Omo-Agege”, signed by the party’s Legal Adviser, Dennis Nwanokwai, noted the senator’s expulsion is with immediate effect.
The statement reads: “The latest of such activities relate to the hijack of primaries panel members and materials sent from the national secretariat to conduct primaries in the state and deploying same to conduct unauthorised parallel primaries.
“Others are the manipulation and tampering of delegates’ lists and the use of thugs to harass and deprive authentic delegates of access to primaries venues, all that in conjunction with Prophet Jones Erue and others who have earlier been expelled from our party”.
The expulsion is with immediate effect and the SWC also resolved to petition the Police to arrest and prosecute the embattled senator.
