You can’t claim Omo-Agege’s electoral victory, Delta APC chieftain tells Emerhor
A national caucus member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Frank Ajobena, has challenged Mr. Olorogun Emerhor over his claim of the electoral victory of the Delta Central Senatorial District.
According to Ajobena, a former military administrator of Abia, Emerhor has no moral right to claim the electoral victory of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege who emerged winner of the Feb. 23 election.
He spoke on Monday in an interview with journalists in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that following a ruling by Asaba Federal High Court that Chief Cyril Ogodo-led Exco was the legitimate executive of the APC in the state.
Emerhor had described himself as the ”senator-elect” for the district.
Ajobena, a retired Air Vice Marshall, alleged that Emerhor worked against Omo-Agege’s emergence as the party’s candidate in the race.
According to him, Emerhor did not contribute anything but worked against Omo-Agege, but that God helped the party as Omo-Agege was popular enough to attract votes that earned him victory.
”The margin of the votes would have been wider if he had the support of Emerhor.
”So, on what moral grounds would he be spoiling to take the trophy from that contest,” he asked.
