Senate presidency ,Orji uzor kalu to step down for Omo-Agege


The leadership of the Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, yesterday, has urged Senator-elect for Abia North, Orji Kalu, to step down for Senator Ovie Omo-Agege in the race for the office of Deputy Senate President in the incoming National Assembly.
The UPU President General, Chief Joe Omene, made the call during a press briefing on Friday at Mosogar, Ethiope West local government area of Delta State.
According to him, the Southeast has had its fair share in the leadership of the Senate since inception of democracy, so Kalu should endorse Omo-Agege for Deputy Senate President in fairness to the South-south region.
Omene said the likes of Senators Adolphus Wabara, Ken Nnamani, Evan Enwerem, Chuba Okadigbo, Anyim Pius Anyim and others have at one time held the position of the Senate President, before Ekweremadu and that the Southsouth has been supportive of the Southeast.
He said, “It is on this ground we are appealing to all Southsouth senators irrespective of political party to join hands together to ensure the position does not go out of hand. This is not the time to segregate or divide but to unite to achieve a common goal of the people and growth of Southsouth.
“We also know Mr. President and the party leadership will not fail us in this struggle because it is obvious that Omo-Agege has been tested and his loyalty is not in doubt, it was this we saw that all Urhobos, Deltans and Southsouth are calling on him to come and represent them in that capacity of Deputy Senate President.
“We are on behalf of the Urhobo people at home and in diaspora appealing to Sen. Uzor Kalu and others to pull their weight behind Omo-Agege for the Deputy Senate President for one good turn they say deserves another. Tomorrow we will still be there for either Southeast or Southwest and we have to also reciprocate.
