The Niger Delta Youth Council of Nigeria (NDYCN) National Youth President, Comrade Blessing Adogbeji has alleged the All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate in Delta State, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, is not accessible to the people and as such he is not fit to govern the people.
Adogbeji said that the leadership of the NDYCN which happens to be the highest youth governing body in all the states of the Niger Delta region had condemned the inaccessible nature of the gubernatorial candidate, saying that he was not open to the electorate.
Speaking to pressmen today in Oghara, Adogbeji expressed displeasure over the incoherent and willful avoidance of appointments with the Deputy Senate President in letters to see him, adding that such gesture was not a hallmark of true representation.
The National President of NDYCN said Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege is not fit to govern the state come 2023 as he is not accessible to the masses.
“Delta State APC has failed to produce a candidate that would have unified the interest of the people, describing the Deputy Senate President as a square peg in a round hole.
“According to reports from the people, Ovie Omo-Agege is very proud and not accessible to the public, therefore he lacks the merit to represent Delta State Most Especially now that it is Delta Central time, Ovie Omo-Agege do not have the capacity to govern our dear state.
“Delta Central needs an accessible candidate for true democracy in governance.
“However the Delta State APC deputy governorship candidate Rt .Hon Friday Ossai Osanebi who is the current running mate to delta state APC Gubernatorial Candidate, is the only one who has the people interest and a youth friendly comrade who is readily available at all times to the people.
“I want to categorically say that Osanebi is the reason why APC will have votes in the forthcoming 2023 governorship election as he is a man with a good heart and humanity personified.
“The Delta State APC and Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege had failed the youth, men and women of Delta State, he is not fit to be a Governor,” Adogbeji alleged.
The NDYCN president urged Omo-Agege, who is the Deputy Senate President (DSP) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to prove his accessibility to the people before the 2023 election, stressing that it would be the basis of his score card.
“I urge the DSP to change from such a secretive lifestyle and be accessible so that the electorate can have access to him.
“Deltans will vote for a governor that is accessible come 2023,” the NDYCN president said.
