The President General of Orogun Kingdom, Chief Benson Ndakara has congratulated the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege on his election as one of the leaders of the 9th Assembly.
He however dismissed the allegation of mace snatching leveled against him.
Chief Ndakara congratulated Omo-Agege on behalf of his kinsmen in Orogun Kingdom.
He described Omo-Agege as the first Urhobo Senator to be elected for the second term.
The first Urhobo and indeed the whole of the Niger Delta to occupy the post of Deputy Senate President. “We are happy with this development and we wish him well,” he added.
As number 5 person in hierarchy, Chief Benson advises him to contribute positively to the discuss as well as putting the development of Niger-Delta on the front burner.
“He is about number 5 in hierarchy in this country and I see many people or group looking up to him for solutions to numerous problems facing the Niger Delta area.”
“We have the confidence that he will rise up to the challenges of our people, look beyond the issue of law making which is his major task and delve into infrastructure. He obviously has a huge task ahead but we know he has the capacity to do it,” he concluded.
On the issue of mace, Chief Ndakara says the matter has been laid to rest by the court as there was no evidence to link him with the incident.
According to him, they were mere suspicion and speculation which are unreliable in law. He stated further that it was reported that the persons involved were arrested but no one mentioned his name.
Speaking further he added that in law no matter how strong suspicion or speculation would be it certainly can not be the basis for conviction.
“At any case he went to court and the court ruled in his favour,” he concluded.
