There is a consciousness that pervades the land. It is the establishment of a paradigm for progressive governance. With legislative practice redefined by the Obarisi of Urhoboland, Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the stage is now set for competence, efficiency and accountability as the hallmark for governance. Today, there is a sharp departure from the old order of failed leadership where political office holders think of themselves as lords over the people with whom power ultimately resides.

The dark years of senators living in the nation’s capital only to return when elections come calling with cosmetic palliatives to bribe their way back to power is now long gone. Indeed, the bar has been raised. Our people now know with unassuming consciousness that competence should and must form the standard criterion for choosing political office holders. A new sheriff is in town.

Now more than ever, the Urhobo nation is winning the war against political relegation. Our voice is now very clear and loud on issues of national interests. As a people, our collective interest is now being articulated in the most rewarding manner. Today, we have visible testimonies of federal government presence in our senatorial district.

The Aladja-Itakpe rail line abandoned for over thirty years is now functional; our aged pensioners of the defunct Delta Steel Company have since been paid their emoluments. Our sons and daughters who before now were considered unfit for public offices by the immediate federal government now sit on the boards of different government agencies made possible by the Buhari government. All these happened because we now have a strong voice in the senate.

Soon the National Inland Waterways Authority [NIWA] would commence work on the Okwagbe River port as facilitated by the Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege and duly approved by the federal government of Nigeria. Moreso, arrangements are on top gear to revive the Warri and Sapele seaports as part of efforts to boost economic activities and job creation in the area.

Today, we have the Amukpe-Eku- Agbor road dualization project. Before now, travelling through that route became the greatest nightmare of commuters. Tales abound of horrendous experiences on that road. Lives were lost to avoidable road accidents, our girls and women were not spared as they were raped by hoodlums and goods lost to bandits and robbers. Thank heaven, the narrative have changed with Distinguished senator Omo-Agege using the instrumentality of his office to engage the presidency, succor have now come our way as work is ongoing.
God bless the day Urhobo made the Omo-Agege decision. No doubt, his membership of the National Assembly remains one of the best gifts Urhobo nation received in recent times. Driven by his desire to improve the living conditions of his constituents, the adjanakpo of the 8th senate as he is fondly called by his supporters embarked on a massive empowerment scheme for our women. With over six thousand petty market traders empowered with twenty thousand naira each to boost their businesses in the first tranche, beneficiaries can now go to the market to buy goods and sell rest assured that the profits made goes straight to their accounts, not to be expended on servicing jaw breaking high interest loans.

An accomplished grassroots politician by every standard, the senator had no problems identifying the felt needs of his people. To this end, he tasked himself on the need to eradicate the problem of portable drinking water shortage in the senatorial district by setting up 21st century compliant braithwaithe solar powered water schemes across major towns in Delta Central. Not done, the people’s senator embarked on electrification projects culminating in the installation of electric transformers as well as solar powered street lights in Okpe, Ughelli and Uvwie metropolis amongst other laudable visible constituency projects in education, road construction and health spread across the district.

As a people, we have followed very closely senator Agege’s sterling legislative performances at the senate. In a record period of two years and nine months in the 8th assembly, the erudite lawyer have grown to become a force to reckon with with no less than eleven bills to his credit. As a result, the Federal University of Petroleum Resources, Ugbomro through the ’’ FUBRE BILL 2016’’ now have legal backing to operate as a citadel of higher learning. More so, with the passage of the ‘’Sexual Harassment Prohibition Bill 2016’’ now law of the federation sponsored by senator Agege amid wide acceptance from colleague’s and relevant stakeholders, our female students can no longer be objects of sexual gratification by predatory lecturers. There is also amongst others, the “Electoral Act 2010 Amendment Bill 2016” which seeks to strengthen our democracy by arresting the scourge of electoral malpractice which the system have been fraught with.

There is no denying that Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege have proven to be a worthy ambassador of the Urhobo nation. With an undimmed passion, he pursues the Urhobo cause with renewed vigor. His commitment to restoring Urhobo’s greatness as a sought after ethnic nationality in Nigeria’s politics speaks volumes of the love he has for his people. I cannot agree less with Miss Annabel Ogheneganre who had earlier averred that : ’’ Urhobo have found gold in Omo-Agege and with him at the fore-front of the struggle to liberate Urhobo from political bondage, things can only get better’’.

The stage is now set, the bar of progressive governance have been raised. Senator Ovie Omo-Agege brings to the race a rich scorecard of superlative performance, an asset of wealth of experience and a trusted brand of valuable contacts and relationships to set the Urhobo nation on the pedestal of greatness. Urhobo deserves only the best. Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is our best. Let’s send him a second time
