The National Vice-Chairman(South-South) of the APC, Victor Giadom during a speech at Omo-Agege’s declaration at the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, FUPRE in Uvwie, said Delta State is ripe to be taken by the APC.
“I hereby issue quit notice to PDP in Delta State. Pack your load and go.
“The APC has come to Delta this afternoon to issue final departure to PDP this afternoon.”
Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, who officially declared his intentions to contest the 2023 governorship elections in Delta State said, “I offer myself as a candidate for the office of governor 2023.”
