Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, the outspoken Deputy Senate President representing the Delta State central senatorial district at the 9th Assembly on Monday, said the era where President Muhammadu Buhari was threatened with “impeachments” by the previous legislature was over with his emergence as Deputy Senate President and that of Sen. Ahmed Lawan, as Senate President.


According to the Ughelli born Senator “Gone are those days when impeachment threats will be issued to the President Buhari. But today we are having a house where you have the Senate President, Sen. Ahmed Lawan and myself combined, we will make Nigeria better with the supports of all Nigerians.”

Omo-Agege made the statement in his country home, Orogun in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.


He further thanked President Muhammadu Buhari who made it possible for him to occupy the position of the “Deputy Senate President” in the 9th Assembly.


President Buhari loves the Urhobo people and Deltans in particular,that’s why he has appointed a Deltan in the person of Mr. Festus Keyamo, SAN as a minister to serve in his cabinet even though the odds leading to his emergence were enormous.

“President Buhari went further to put his legs down that I become the Deputy Senate President.”


He urged all Deltans to thank President Buhari for his emergence as Deputy Senate President serving with the most vibrant Sen. Ahmed Lawan as President of the Senate who is working positively to ensure that the next level agenda of the president comes to reality.


Sen. Omo-Agege also stated that the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governors also supported his emergence as Deputy Senate President just as he thanked all of them for the supports.
