FOR SENATOR OMO-AGEGE, IT IS PROMISE MADE AND PROMISE KEPT
“I will take to the Senate the great need to place the Urhobo nation on the pedestal it deserves that will become visible at the national stage.”
—His Excellency, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege
No doubt His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege records and achievements as an efficient, articulate and deft legislator, obviously speak for themselves.
We certainly cannot take it away from Senator Omo-Agege that, among the Senators that has emerged from Delta Central Senatorial District since the present political dispensation (1999-till date), he is indeed one Senator that has made the most impact on the lives and wellbeing of the Urhobo nation and its people.
His legislative dexterity and astuteness in ensuring that the Federal Polytechnic Orogun Bill passes third reading in the Senate is a major milestone for the entire Urhobo Nation.
There is no gainsaying the fact that this is about the most important piece of legislation the Urhobo Nation has recorded in the Nigerian Senate since 1999. It obviously remind us of the political gains made by the Urhobo Nation between 1979-1983, in terms of federal patronage and presence in Urhobo territory.
Besides his widely acknowledged, sound and articulate representation of Urhobo national interest in the Nigerian Senate, it is also common knowledge that Senator Omo-Agege has endeared himself to the Nigerian people through the sponsorship of the all-important Electoral Act Amendment Bill which is seen by many as the antidote to the nation’s flawed electoral process.
