It was learnt that as part of their resolve that the presidential flag bearer of the party, Peter Obi is expected to visit Delta State to bolster the morale of the Obident Army. Leading Obidient, Pat Utomi it was gathered is also making his way to Delta to galvanise support for the Labour Party governorship candidate,
Besides Omo-Agege and others present at the meeting in Warri included his Chief of Staff, Otive Igbuzor, APC Delta Central Chairman, Chief Paulinus Akpeki among others.
The Labour Party delegation included the Director-General of the Obidient Army, Mr Hendricks Opukeme, Pastor White, the Labour Party chairman for Ukwani Local Government Area among others.
Addressing the gathering, Omo-Agege said he recognized the anger of the Obidients adding that he was with them on the mismanagement of the resources of Delta State by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa adding that his government had nothing tangible to show despite being the highest recipient of oil revenue. Even more painful was that Okowa had piled a mountain of debt.
