National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Maxi Okwu, has called on Igbo elders to caution Chief Victor Umeh “against his penchant to blackmail anybody that differs with him.” 

Okwu, who was elected APGA Chairman on Monday, made the call in Enugu, South-East Nigeria, while reacting to a statement credited to Umeh that he (Okwu) should apologise for allegedly insulting late APGA National leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu.

Umeh had accused Okwu of describing late Ezeigbo Gburugburu as an “extremist” in his post-election speech at the APGA National Convention held in Awka, Anambra State, on Monday.

However, Okwu wondered why Umeh should attribute outright falsehood to people. He told journalists yesterday: “I hereby call on his people to apologise on what was clearly falsehood, as I never at any point called Ojukwu an extremist or used an abusive word against him.”
According to Okwu, Umeh, “from the manner he talks and the way he behaves these days, needs an assemblage of Igbo elders to talk sense into him and restrict him from behaving like a puppy dog jeering  and tearing at anyone that disagrees with him.”

Okwu said it was regrettable that Umeh is not allowing the spirit of Ojukwu to rest in peace by invoking him at any given time.
