Speaking when he led his campaign train to Ozoro and Oleh, Isoko North and South LGAs, Omo-Agege said Okowa was bent on retiring his political benefactor from active politics.

Lamenting the mismanagement of the state’s resources by the Okowa led administration, he noted that those currently defecting from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the APC were doing so on their own personal conviction.

He added that Okowa would not be able to withstand the defection tsunami that would hit the PDP in the days ahead.
