- Governor Okowa's aide, Charles Aniagwu, has criticised the deputy Senate president, Ovie Omo-Agege, calling him a liar
- The aide said this in reaction to Omo-Agege's allegation that Governor Okowa spent over N2.8trn in seven years without anything to show for it
- Aniagwu advised the senator to tow another path other than lying because the achievements of Okowa were visible to Deltans
Deputy Senate president, Ovie Omo-Agege, cannot win a local government chairmanship seat, let alone the governorship seat, according to the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa.
Punch Newspaper had reported that Omo-Agege accused the Okowa-led government of spending over N2.8trn in seven years without anything to show for it.
This Day Newspaper reports that Okowa, who spoke through his commissioner for information, Charles Aniagwu, said:
“Omo-Agege is a liar and the lie will not help him; Deltans are wise and he cannot keep deceiving them. Omo-Agege cannot differentiate between federal and state roads. If he does not have knowledge of roads, he should keep quiet.

“This is a man who led thugs to the National Assembly to shut down the Senate by carrying mace, for which we have apologised to Nigerians because he is our son. Omo-Agege never sponsored a bill let alone assent to it. He did not have a bill in his name. He cannot win local government chairman let alone win governor seat in this state.”
Top PDP chieftain dresses Tinubu, Oshiomhole down over attack against Okowa
Meanwhile, the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has been condemned for his recent attack on the vice-presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ifeanyi Okowa.
The chief economic adviser to the Delta state government, Kingsley Emu, said Tinubu's description of Lagos state as an example of development is laughable.
Reacting to Tinubu, Adams Oshiomhole and Senator Ovie Omo-Agege's disparaging comments about Okowa over the weekend, Emu urged the former Lagos governor to tell the world how he managed the state's money.
