THE senator representing Delta Central senatorial district, Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that there were plots to stop him from reclaiming his mandate at the Court of Appeal, Benin City, Edo State, but through divine intervention, the court ruled in his favour.
The senator made this known at SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Ughelli, Delta State, during a thanksgiving service to commemorate his swearing-in as senator and victory at the appellate court.
He said: “My Court of Appeal victory changed the dynamics of politics in Delta State. This is despite the fact that the past and current governments of Delta State made efforts to stop me from reclaiming my mandate by compromising the judges at the lower tribunal but God gave me victory at the Appeal Court.”
In his homily, the presiding priest, Rev. Fr. Anthony Ozele, called on the National Assembly to support the anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari, adding, “If the anti-corruption war is to be successful, the national and state assemblies must support Mr. President in this fight.”
