“He is running for the position of Delta State governor and in the last seven years, he has demonstrated a capacity to lead, to develop and to bring people together that the opposition has not seen in the last 10 years. And that is why he will win the election in 2023.

“In 2015 when a strong voice was needed at the national level to reposition the Urhobo Nation after years of declining influence and standing in the polity of our country, we sent Senator Ovie Omo-Agege to the Senate to represent us.

“In just seven years in the Senate, Omo-Agege prospered Urhobo Nation; he offered us effective representation in the Senate and raised the bar on legislative representation to a new level.

“The terms of the last seven years are great in terms of development and sound representation.

“These accomplishments, which shows that doing good work matters, have laid a solid foundation for our future and we must build on that foundation as Omo-Agege heads to the governorship position to build a PAN Delta Agenda for all Deltans,” he enthused.

Ede Dafinone, of the great Dafinone dynasty in Sapele, said he has duly consulted his people and purchased the APC nomination form to serve the people of Delta Senatorial District and the Urhobo Nation in the Senate.

“I am running with the hope that the people of Delta Central Senatorial District will allow me to deploy my experience as a Chartered Accountant, Chairman of the Manufacturer Association Of Nigeria, Chairman of the Nigerian Consultation Foundation, as Philanthropist e.t.c; which has prepared me to hit the ground running with an understanding of the issues that matter most to Delta Central and Nigeria.

“I seek to make a difference in the Senate in offering myself as the representative of the people.

“I am mindful of their expectations and needs which I understand very well having served in various committees of the UPU whenever I have been given the privilege to contribute my quota.

“I am even more committed in serving our people and contributing to the progress of Urhoboland.

“I will put Delta Central and Urhobo Nation first in all my discussions,” he said.

In his welcome address, Chairman, Dafinone Strategy Committee, Olorogun Adelabu Bodjor, said Dafinone’s humility and efficiency were overwhelming and that given his pedigree, he was the right person to take over from Deputy Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
