Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Senator Victor Umeh, at the weekend took his war of words with Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, to the commercial city of Aba in Abia State.

Umeh, who was in attendance at the declaration rally for Dr. Alex Otti, the former Group Managing Director of Diamond Bank Plc who is running for the governorship of Abia State next year, said Governor Okorocha was a political error, APGA deeply regrets.

Addressing the massive crowd of supporters at the Ngwa High School, Aba who exceeded the expectations of the organisers, Umeh, who is also the Senator representing Anambra Central at the National Assembly, said: “When I look at your faces I feel encouraged. I feel that there is hope for Ndigbo, but one thing that is clear and cannot be denied is that your faces also show your dissatisfaction with the situation in your state. I understand that very clearly and we must put an end to the suffering and gloom in Abia State.

“We’ll rearrange Igbo land. And in trying to do so, we must sack some people with questionable records from our political space. We need men who are trustworthy not those full of deceit. We need someone who knows the sufferings of the people and has all the necessary education and experience.

“We need someone who has come to serve not to steal. My brothers and sisters, Ndigbo is suffering because we keep electing unqualified persons. We must put an end to such trend. Alex Otti is an Officer of the Federal Republic (OFR). He has the education and experience in financial and human management.”

Umeh went further to assure that Otti will never be like Okorocha and vowed to produce a book that contains the list of evil doers in the South East during the campaigns and expose them for who they are.

Lamenting that Okorocha turned out a failed project for APGA and a liability to the Igbo nation, the Senator said: “We suffered to enthrone APGA Imo State. We tried it in Imo and wasted our time fighting for Rochas Okorocha. He promised to unite the Igbos. We gave him the opportunity to touch his people’s life. We placed him there again to help those in Anambra to win our remaining three states so that when we get to Abuja to talk, people will listen to us."
