- Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the APC is holding its primaries for different political posts
- The party is currently holding its primary for the Delta Central senatorial seat
- The senator representing the senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege, is said to be leading in the primary election
Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is said to be leading in the Delta Central senatorial primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Vanguard reports that the primary election started in the early hours of Wednesday, October 3 and is still ongoing.
Legit.ng gathers that the voting process started with accreditation of delegates from the eight local government areas in the senatorial district.
The election is being held under tight security. According to report, the election is peaceful and orderly.
In an earlier report by Legit.ng, Ovie Omo-Agege, senator representing Delta Central senatorial district, on Wednesday, September 26, described a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Olorogun O’tega Emerhor's claim that he intended to kill him as a cheap blackmail.
Omo-Agege described the allegation that he was convicted by a Californian court as a worn-out lie that had failed in every election season. He further explained that he was only alleged to have broken the law in California, but was later found to be innocent; hence he remains an active member of the State of California Bar Association.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, representing Delta Central senatorial district, called on Senate president Bukola Saraki to resign his seat as leader of the Nigerian Senate since he defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Omo-Agege said there were 52 All Progressives Congress (APC) senators and 49 PDP senators and Saraki cannot continue to hold on to his seat as the Senate president since he defected to a minority group.
