He expressed happiness for the APC in Bayelsa for finally breaking the jinx by becoming the second state in the South-South after Edo to come under APC’s control.

Omo-Agege also thanked the people of the state for the confidence reposed in the party and its candidate, assuring that they would not be disappointed.

The lawmaker representing Delta Central Senatorial District also urged the governor-elect Lyon to deliver the dividends of democracy to the electorate.

He, however, called on aggrieved contestants to seek redress in court rather than resort to violence.
