THE Delta State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party and the opposition All Progressives Congress, are preparing to outshine each other as Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, pay a working visit to the state on Monday (today).
Osinbajo is scheduled to inaugurate the multi-billion naira 8.5MW Independent Power Project and the ultra-modern Chike Edozien State Secretariat Complex along Marian Babangida Way, both located in Asaba.
On his part, Omo-Agege is expected to be the guest speaker at the ongoing 90th anniversary of the sociocultural Urhobo Progress Union Worldwide to be held at the UPU Cultural Centre, Uvwiamuge, Agbarho, in Ughelli North Local Government Area.
Our correspondent gathered that in a move to showcase their respective popularity in the state, the two leading political parties have already mobilised their members and supporters to throng the events.
An APC leader, Nze Athan Iwuchukwu in a signed statement called on party men and women, especially non-indigenes across the state, to fully mobilise in their native attires, as early as 8am at Osubi Airport, to give the Deputy Senate President a rousing reception.
In a similar vein, the PDP, “urged Deltans to troop out in large numbers to welcome VP Osinbajo as he arrived in Asaba on Monday 29th November.”
According to PDP, the Vice President “truly deserves the best of Delta hospitality and care while in the state to perform these all-important official assignments”.
