Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege, on Thursday, averred that with Senate President, Ahmed Lawan and himself in charge of the upper chamber, President Muhammadu Buhari can now go to sleep with his two eyes closed.
Omo-Agege made the assertion while addressing a mammoth crowd at his country home in Orogun, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State during his first visit after emerging the Deputy Senate President in the 9th National Assembly.
The Delta Central Senator, who emerged under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last general election, said the political shenanigans that characterised the 8th Upper Chamber against the successful leadership of President Buhari were gone for good.
He urged all Deltans, especially Delta Central Senatorial district, to profusely appreciate President Buhari for supporting his emergence as Deputy Senate President.
He also urged Deltans to pray for himself, Buhari, all APC governors with the exclusion of governors of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
“All I ask for; the biggest tribute you can ever pay to me is to say thank you to President Buhari.
“I have always told him that silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I will give to him.
“And when he was being threatened with impeachment, they were even praying that he should die. All that is over now because he has Ahmed Lawan and your son as SP and DSP.
“Now Buhari sleeps with two eyes closed. But you guys first made it possible because if you did not send me as senator first, there’s not a chance to have me as DSP.
“So, we should say thank you to him,” Omo-Agege charged the people.
Omo-Agege, codemixing his speech with pidgin, said he was in Delta in respect of the final burial of APC chieftain, Adolor Okotiebor.
He urged Deltans in Delta North and South to vote APC in the next senatorial election, hinting that “in a short time, Chief Great Ogboru will emerge governor of Delta State.”
The senator, who spoke after goodwill speeches from some leaders of APC from across the State, vowed not to let down the people in the provision of democratic dividends.
“I won’t let you down. I’ll fulfil all the promises. Continue to pray for me Buhari and APC governors.
“Don’t pray for PDP governors. We want to remove them o. Pray for all Deltans, but don’t pray for PDP governors because nobody knows tomorrow.
“‘Pray for all Deltans irrespective of political affiliations, but don’t pray for PDP governors,” he reiterated amid laughter.
