The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has revealed the reasons behind his decision not to pursue a third term in the Senate. Upon joining the 8th Senate, the senator had a clear vision for his plans, as he firmly believes in avoiding a continuous hold on power.
During a gathering in Abuja yesterday, where he hosted a group of Old Boys from his alma mater, St. George’s College in Obinomba, Delta State, led by the National President, Engr. Cosmos Nwanwene, Omo-Agege shared his perspective. He expressed his intention to contribute within the span of eight years and then gracefully exit.
Omo-Agege emphasized that he had firmly resolved not to seek reelection for a third term in the senatorial seat. Instead, he aims to pursue other endeavors and ventures beyond his current role.
He said: “When I came here to the National Assembly, my mind was made up on what I wanted to do. I don’t believe that one stays in power in perpetuity. You come, make your contribution and move on. I was determined to ensure that eight years is good enough for me in the National Assembly. If I am not able to leave my mark in eight years it means that I was not prepared in the first place.
“I came here, I knew what I wanted to achieve and I have achieved it. And before the APC primaries, I made up my mind that National Assembly was enough for me. That was why I took the decision that my services would be better appreciated this time if I were to serve as the governor of the state. And I very much believe this decision will come to fruition”.
