Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege, has boasted that with the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan and himself in charge of the upper chamber, President Muhammadu Buhari has nothing to worry about and can now go to sleep with his two eyes closed.
Omo-Agege who spoke on Thursday at his country home in Orogun, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State when he received a mammoth crowd that came to receive him during his first visit to the state after his emergence as Deputy Senate President said he owe his new position to Buhari.
He said, “All I ask for; the biggest tribute you can ever pay to me is to say thank you to President Buhari.
“I have always told him that silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I will give to him.
“In my position and in my capacity as the Deputy Senate President, working with the Senate President, the least we owe Mr President is to create an enabling environment to ensure the content of the Next Level Agenda will be brought to reality.
“So that those days when they turned the Senate to a burial ground to anything Buhari, all of that is over now.
“And when he was being threatened with impeachment, they were even praying that he should die. All that is over now because he has Ahmed Lawan and your son as SP and DSP.
“Now Buhari sleeps with two eyes closed. But you guys first made it possible because if you did not send me as senator first, there’s not a chance to have me as DSP.
“So, we should say thank you to him”.
He urged the people to continue to pray for Buhari and APC but should not pray for PDP Governors.
“I won’t let you down. I’ll fulfil all the promises. Continue to pray for me Buhari and APC governors.
“Don’t pray for PDP governors. We want to remove them o. Pray for all Deltans, but don’t pray for PDP governors because nobody knows tomorrow.
“‘Pray for all Deltans irrespective of political affiliations, but don’t pray for PDP governors,” he said amid laughter.
