The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, today moved during Senate plenary to restore Ethiope West (Jesse-Mosogar) State Constituency 1 which shall henceforth have an elected member in the Delta State House of Assembly. The Obarisi of Urhoboland had earlier on December 10, 2020 also moved the Red Chamber to restore Abraka State Constituency to elect its own member to the House of Assembly.
According to Mr. Efe Duku, Special Adviser to Omo-Agege explained following a detailed motion by the DSP during today’s plenary, the Senate unanimously adopted a resolution approving the immediate restoration of Ethiope West State Constituency 1 as a separate and distinct State Constituency in line with relevant provisions of the Constitution.
Senator Omo-Agege presented compelling facts supported with valid and subsisting judicial pronouncements confirming that Ethiope West State Constituency 1, which consists of Jesse Ward I, Jesse Ward II, Jesse Ward III, Jesse Ward IV, Mosogar Ward I and Mosogar Ward II, was arbitrarily and unjustifiably suppressed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
“The DSP’s re-election to the Senate is a privilege and a mandate for more courageous, qualitative, and progressive representation for our people. Today’s resolution is yet another fruitful evidence of that. It proves his seamless capacity to network with other leaders to advance our people’s strategic interests. This will continue, as he is totally committed to his solemn duties.”
