Omo-Agege Denies Involvement In Pipeline Surveillance Contract With NNPCL

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

DEPUTY President of the Senate and Delta State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has denied involvement in any pipeline surveillance contract with the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd (NNPCL). 

Some so-called former Niger Delta agitators of Urhobo and Isoko extraction, had, on Thursday, alleged that the senator was sitting on their Pipeline Surveillance contract funds meant for the Urhobo/Isoko nations.

The angry youths in the early hours of Thursday stormed Onwian Express Junction in Udu Local Government Area of the state, calling on the EFCC to apprehend the Deputy President of the Senate in seven days or prepare for more protests.

Reacting to the call and allegation, Chief Press Secretary (CPS) of the leading APC governorship candidate, Sir Sunny Areh, said the protesters were nothing, but hired hirelings of Delta State governor, “Senator (Ifeanyi) Okowa’s misguided PDP and government in Delta.”

He said “having lost woefully in the presidential election and presently struggling on all fronts in the governorship race in Delta, they (Okowa) mistakenly think they can dent the solid and untainted profile of the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, who is clearly surging ahead to become the next elected Governor of Delta.”

In the statement promptly forwarded to Stonix News on Thursday afternoon, Areh affirmed that “Senator Omo-Agege is not a contractor and obviously has no contract whatsoever with NNPCL on pipelines surveillance.”

According to him, “That is an easily verifiable fact. What you are seeing is just the last kicks of a dying horse. Ignore them as the losers that they are and will continue to be.

“We only pity the juveniles that they are paying peanuts to misbehave.

“Deltans have made up their minds to sweep away Okowa and whatever looks like him, especially his lackeys and stooges.

“Nothing will change that. But we must seriously warn those who allow the wayward Okowa government to use them, to seek legal guidance on our laws in relation to the subject of defamation.”
