IYC hails Omo-Agege’s election as Deputy Senate President

 The Ijaw Youth Council has hailed the election of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as the Deputy Senate President in the 9th National Assembly.

It described the development as a step towards integrating the people of the Niger Delta into the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The council made its position known in a statement on Wednesday by its President, Mr Eric Omare.

It said the election of Omo-Agege, who represents Delta Central, meant that the region now has a voice in the decision making process of the All Progressives Congress-led government.

It therefore called on the senator to use his new position to champion the struggle for the development of the oil-rich region.

The statement read, “The Ijaw Youth Council worldwide has hailed the election of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege of Delta Central as the Deputy President of the Senate.

“The IYC regards Senator Omo-Agege’s election as a positive step to integrate the Niger Delta region into the mainstream of decision making in the Buhari administration.

“The region has not fared very well under Buhari; hence we consider Omo-Agege’s election as the right step in the right direction.”
