Delta State Commissioner of Information and the Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Charles Aniagwu has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial candidate of the State, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, lacks the understanding of governance.
and the ownership of the various projects in the state.

Aniagwu disclosed this to journalist shortly after the Gubernatorial candidate addressed the media on his manifesto and his intention to become the Governor of Delta state.
He said that the APC gubernatorial flagbearer has exhibited complete state of emptiness, adding that “instead of Senator Omo-Agege to address issues by saying what he would do differently to attract votes, he got himself carried away by unfounded accusation”.

Continuing, the information Commissioner, said the APC candidate had consistently cast aspersion on the state government owing to fact that he had nothing to offer making him unfit to govern the state.

Aniagwu added that he was astonished that Omo-Agege was unable to differentiate between state and federal roads noting that the failed portion of roads mentioned by the Deputy Senate President such as the Agbor-Eku-Sapele Road, Ughelli-Asaba Road and Warri Benin Roads, are all Federal Roads.

He further stated that contrary to Deputy President of the Senate’s false accusation of widespread underdevelopment in the riverine areas of the state, the Okowa-led administration of the PDP had successfully executed projects in the riverine areas of Delta to the amazement of the benefitting communities.

On the allegation by the deputy senate president that Delta had received N2.8 trillion in the past seven and half year with nothing to show for it, the commissioner said the allegation was another demonstration of the senator’s lack of understanding about governance and complete misrepresentation of facts on ground.

Aniagwu noted that over the years the state government had made giant strides in the areas of education, where educational institutions had not only been increased but upgraded
He added that the Stephen Keshi Stadium had undergone developmental transformation as well as the upgraded Asaba Airport were notable achievements of the present government.
