Leader and national chairman of breakaway All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Comrade Jerry Obasi, has condemned the recent rally of the party in Awka, the Anambra State capital, saying that his group insists that Governor Willie Obiano and the embattled national Chairman, Sir Victor Oye, must leave.

Obasi, in a statement, stated that the Awka rally was not only an afterthought but a ruse, adding that the event was a calculated attempt to continue the ideology of deception smuggled into APGA by Obiano and Oye.

He maintained that his group was determined to reclaim the soul of APGA from “charlatans who are interested in burying the party”, stressing that the belated attempt to show solidarity with General John Gbor as the APGA presidential candidate does not vitiate the position of APGA that Obiano, Oye and others are rooting for President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, the entire game plan is to divide Igbo votes so that its bloc voting pattern would not allow opposition parties to win elections, especially national assembly positions in Anambra State.

Said Obasi: “We challenge Obiano and Oye to come out and swear to Ndigbo and Anambra people in particular that they did not enter into a pact with the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2017 to support Buhari’s second term to reciprocate the contribution of the Presidency to Obiano’s second term election. In the circumstance, we are not averred in any way to the presidential bid of President Muhammadu Buhari if well deserved.”

Comrade Obasi noted that just few days after the breakaway party was launched in Abuja, it called on Obiano and Oye, the embattled national chairman, to resign from their positions.

He accused them of stage-managing an impromptu rally to fool Ndigbo and Nigerians, revealing that General Gbor was nominated by the Buhari Presidency in collaboration with Governor Obiano and Oye after it became obvious that members of APGA would not allow the party to be without a presidential candidate, as the teeming members of the party cannot be fooled again, most especially in this all-important 2019 election.

“Let me use this opportunity to inform Obiano and Oye that their deception and cocktail of lies and charade would not save them. Nigerians would recall that shortly after the Anambra governorship abracadabra, Oye told journalists in Abuja that APGA would meet to endorse Buhari. Obiano and Oye also started attacking Emeka Ojukwu Jnr, the son of APGA’s revered late leader, Ikemba Nnewi for jumping ship before their own appointed time,” he said.

Obasi expressed regret that Igbo politicians have decided to keep quiet “while Obiano and Oye, who are aliens to the original ideals of APGA, continue to make merchandise of the people’s only political legacy in the name of backdoor endorsement of an unwanted, unholy and unacceptable political alliance. It simply goes to say that he who does not know when and how a corpse is buried will always exhume such from her legs.”

The APGA leader disclosed that it is putting finishing touches to its plans to drag Obiano and Oye to court for serial breaches of the APGA constitution, insisting that the party consists of original members of APGA that are against the auctioning and murder of the people’s party.

“We are determined to recover APGA from these traducers and stranger-elements. Nigerians should watch out how this imminent battle for the soul of APGA would play out. The fact that some eminent stakeholders are not speaking should not deceive Obiano. He is clutching at the shortest end of the stick.

“They cannot get away with impunity and injustice against founding members of APGA, typical of the recent molestation of Her Excellency Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, the widow of our most revered leader even in death in the person of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegu Ojukwu,” Obasi stated.
