The three-time member of the State Assembly, who hails from Beneku town in Ndokwa-East Local Government Area of the state, was nominated Wednesday by Senator Omo-Agege as his running mate.
Senator Omo-Agege had described the APC deputy governorship candidate as a lawyer and a man of impeccable character, serving as a three-time lawmaker in various committees which included Chairman, House Committee on Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission; Deputy Chief Whip; Chairman, House Committee on Inter-Parliamentary Affairs; Chairman, House Committee on Culture and Tourism among others.
The Delta APC governorship candidate discovered that his running mate emerged from a “painstaking internal vetting process in which many notable and highly qualified nominees were also considered.”
The Director, Communications and Media Strategy of the Delta APC Governorship Campaign Organisation, Ima Niboro, in a statement congratulating the former Deputy Speaker on his emergence as the party’s deputy governorship candidate, articulated the hope that he would add immense value to the ticket.
Also, the spokesperson hailed Omo-Agege for having confidence in the youth, emphasising that Osanebi’s choice was a testimony of Omo-Agege’s belief in the ability of the younger generation to drive the needed positive change in the state.
