The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Delta State Council, has described the election of the Senator representing Delta Central, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as a divine manifestation of the will of God in the affairs of men.
The NUJ, in a statement issued in Asaba, the Delta State capital, said that God had ways of confounding the wisdom of men’s calculations and expectations, saying that the elevation of Omo-Agege in the face of suffocating opposition to a senator and now the Deputy Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was a demonstration of the will of God at work.
