Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, said that President Muhammadu Buhari can now go to sleep with his two eyes closed, with Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, and himself in charge of the Upper Legislative Chamber.
Omo-Agege made the assertion on Thursday, while addressing a mammoth crowd at his country home in Orogun, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was learnt that this would be the Delta Lawmaker’s first visit back home since emerging as the Senate’s number two man.
Omo-Agege further asserted that the political shenanigans that characterised the 8th Senate against the Buhari’s successful Leadership are gone for good.
For supporting his emergence as Deputy Senate President, Omo-Agege urged all Deltans to profusely appreciate the President.
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 can sleep with his 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.”
