In a statement issued by his media office in Abuja on Monday, the lawmaker stated that supporters of the party have come out victorious.

Omo-Agege said: “We are also aware that there was an attempt to run a parallel congress by political miscreants and minority in the state but that was by a body which was not authorised by the national body but our congress was conducted by the panel that was sent from Abuja.

“But I believe that they will all see the need to come together as one in common goal.

“The real enemy here is the PDP. I’m very hopeful that in no time we will come together to project the state for the next general election.”

He also praised the Sani Dododo-led congress committee and all the chairmen and members of the local government executive that emerged from the congress.

“Also those who emerged as state delegates from the national delegate. My congratulations to them.

“I also wish to congratulate the state led executive under Prophet Jones Erue for the leadership it provided. There was little or no violence,” the senator added.
