Omo-Agege accused of recruiting Emefiele to sabotage Tinubu’s presidential ambition.

The Delta State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has leveled serious allegations against former Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, claiming that he orchestrated the suspension of Godwin Emefiele, the Central Bank Governor, in a bid to undermine Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s aspiration to become the APC presidential candidate.In a letter addressed to the President, titled “Attempts by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege to scuttle presidential ambition of President Bola Tinubu through recruitment of Mr. Godwin Emefiele, anti-Tinubu campaign stance, and anti-party activities,” the Delta APC chapter detailed its concerns. The letter, signed by key party officials including the state APC Secretary, Inana Michael, Delta North Chairman, Tom Onah, South Chairman, Nelson Ogharama, and Central Chairman, Michael Orunefe, was made available to The PUNCH.According to the statement, the Delta APC had previously learned of Omo-Agege’s alleged plan to issue a party membership card to Godwin Emefiele, the CBN Governor, which raised objections within the party, particularly from members in Ika South Local Government Area. They argued that it was morally inappropriate for Emefiele to run for office, as it would hinder President Bola Tinubu’s chances of securing the party’s presidential ticket.Efforts to reason with Omo-Agege were futile, as he apparently assured Emefiele that Felix Morka, the party’s National Publicity Secretary whom he had planted as a spy, would assist in securing Emefiele the ticket.The Delta APC leaders pointed to a news story published on May 9, 2022, in The PUNCH, which allegedly confirmed that the APC Ward chairman, Mr. Nduka Erikpume, eventually provided Emefiele with the membership card in February 2021. The Ika South APC Local Government Chairman, Hilary FadaIbude, also signed the expulsion letters of the state leaders who opposed Omo-Agege’s recruitment of Emefiele.Moreover, the Delta APC leaders claimed that on the night of the APC convention, Omo-Agege instructed Delta delegates to vote against Tinubu, implying that he stood no chance against their favored candidate. Despite this, Tinubu won the primary convincingly.Additionally, the leaders alleged that Omo-Agege supported the opposition Labour Party rather than the APC during the general elections. They provided posters and videos showing Omo-Agege with the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, as evidence of his disloyalty.In response to the accusations, the Communications and Media Strategist for Omo-Agege Campaign Organisation, Ima Niboro, directed inquiries to Omo-Agege’s Chief Press Secretary, Sunny Areh. However, Areh declined to comment and suggested contacting Delta APC Chairman, Omeni Sobotie, for further clarification. Unfortunately, Sobotie could not be reached at the time of reporting, as his phone was unreachable.Meanwhile, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, dismissed the allegations against Omo-Agege as baseless, claiming that the individuals making the accusations were part of a Cairo Ojougboh-sponsored organization not affiliated with the genuine Delta APC.The situation remains tense within the Delta APC as the party leaders call on the President to intervene and free the state chapter from what they perceive as Omo-Agege’s control, allowing it to operate independently.
