Massive blow for Tinubu as Omo-Agege subtly tells Nigerians to vote out APC

The Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, may have just de-marketed the presidential candidate or the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, when he called on Nigerians to vote out leaders who destroyed the nation’s economy, and failed to provide security for the people. 

Omo-Agege who made the observation on Saturday at the 5th Annual Leadership Lecture/Graduation Ceremony of the Value Rebirth-Centre-LSD Leadership School, Effurun/Warri in Delta, said the failures of the Buhari administration, has worsened the prevailing poverty, political instability, insurgence and collapse of government institutions in the country.

Although Omo-Agege, who gained popularity among Nigerians due to his role in the missing maze saga during the 8th senate, is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and the Governorship flagbearer in Delta, he however urged people to only vote for sound ethical leadership rooted in respect, honesty, service, equity, justice and community service.

He noted that over the years, poor leadership had frustrated the achievement of the country’s enormous economic and political potentials.

“But all is not lost because State and nation-building all over the world have been and remain a permanent work in progress.

“As we move towards leadership selection in 2023, the leaders we need now should posses knowledge, sound Judgment and commitment to specific causes and ideals,” he said

Meanwhile, former President Goodluck Jonathan, has warned Nigerians against voting the wrong people in next year’s general elections, saying doing so would be a grave mistake.

“Ahead of the 2023 elections, we are getting ready to be wooed and wowed at campaign grounds by various politicians seeking different offices.

“But these thoughts are beyond 2023. It is about Nigeria and the kind of leadership it deserves now and in the future to ensure that our country assumes its rightful place among the comity of nations.

“My charge to Nigerians is to be circumspect in the exercise of their voting rights.

“We must shift away from the politics of bread and butter and ensure that we do not elect leaders that will buy our conscience today and mortgage the future of our children and grandchildren.

“We should endeavour to elect only those that will leave legacies of unity, peace and development,” Jonathan said.
