The Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, has been expelled from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State for alleged anti-party activities and other unnamed offences.

The announcement was made in a letter dated March 31, 2023, and signed by the Chairman of the Delta APC, Ulebor Isaac, on behalf of the State Executive Committee and Secretary, Inana Michael, and 23 others.

Omo-Agege was the governorship candidate of the APC in Delta State but lost to the Governor-elect, Sheriff Oborevwori, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), by a margin of 120,005 votes.

In the expulsion letter, the State Executive Committee of the APC in Delta State unanimously resolved and adopted the expulsion of Omo-Agege as a member of the party by the executive committee of the Orogun ward and Ughelli North Local Government chapter.

According to the letter, Omo-Agege stands expelled as a member of the party with immediate effect for various offences committed, acts of anti-party activities, and gross misconduct that has brought shame and ridicule to the image of the party in the state, which affected the party in the just-concluded elections.

The expulsion letter further explained that the decision was made in accordance with the provision of Article 21.2 (1)(II)(VII) 21.3 and 21.5(g) of the constitution 2022 (as amended).

Omo-Agege had also been accused by a chieftain of the party of not working hard in the state to garner votes for the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, but rather for himself. It is unclear if this was one of the offences he was accused of committing.
