- A leader of the APC, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, says Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is scheming to return to the PDP
- Chief Emerhor accuses Omo-Agege of leading the APC to defeat in the 2019 general elections in Delta because of the crisis he allegedly created
- The party chieftain further notes how Omo-Agege reportedly deceived Great Ogboru that the latter would become the governor of Delta in 2019
Senator Ovie Omo-Agege may be scheming to return to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta state, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, declared on Monday, April 15.
Legit.ng understands that Emerhor said this in reaction to a recent interview by Omo-Agege, who represents Delta Central district.
According to Emerhor, it was only a matter of time before Omo-Agege goes back to the PDP, which he called the senator’s ‘natural home’ since he had succeeded in making the APC lose in the 2019 general elections.

Emerhor described the senator as the “real cancer that invaded and ravaged the body politics of Delta APC.”
The Nation reports that in a statement by his media aide, Aghogho Orotomah, Emerhor alleged that Omo-Agege’s incursion into the party in 2017 has only created disunity and factionalism.
“Omo-Agege upon joining APC kept his group of labor party joiners intact and later transformed it into the Ogboru/Agege faction of today’s Delta APC.
“Omo-Agege’s plan from day one was to ride on the back of Chief Great Ogboru to return back to the senate,” Emerhor said.
He accused Omo-Agege of setting about this by promising Chief Ogboru that the latter would be made the governor of Delta state in 2019.
“Against the run of play of equity and political reality, Omo-Agege sold this dummy to Chief Ogboru that power rotation and zoning in Delta state do not matter, that the Delta north does not deserve to complete their eight years,” Emerhor added.
Legit.ng earlier reported that a Federal High Court (FHC) sitting in Asaba on Thursday, April 4, nullified the APC's governorship primary election conducted in Delta state.
The plaintiff Hon Victor Ochei, through his lawyer, Ahmed Rahi, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), asked the court to declare that the APC's gubernatorial primary election that held on Sunday, September 30, 2018, was illegal and unlawful on the ground that delegates unknown to the law were used for the exercise in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1085/2018.
