The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has distributed empowerment items for people in his constituency – Those included were youths and women in the eight local governments.
The programme which took place in Orhomuru, Orogun, the hometown of the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, on Friday, August 23, doled out eight Toyota Corolla cars, 43 tricycles, 175 motorcycles, 186 grinding machines and other items to members of his senatorial district.
The items were presented to the beneficiaries at his country home, Orogun in Ughelli North local government area of Delta state, while the beneficiaries were drawn from the eight local government areas of the district. Omo-Agege was represented by the director-general of his campaign organisation, Mr Francis Onomeyo at the event.
He said the gesture was to appreciate the people for their massive support for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). He also revealed that the empowerment would have been done before the 2019 general elections but had to be postponed due to the pressure of the elections.
