Stakeholders allege Peter Obi wants to destroy APGA

| January 14, 2013 | 0 Comments

Stakeholders of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA yesterday alleged that governor Peter Obi of Anambra state was plotting to collapse the party at the end of his two years tenures.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Onwuka Ukwa who was reacting to newspaper report credited to the chairman of governor Peter Obi campaign organisation, Sylvester Nwobu Alor that no reconciliation of aggrieved factions had taken place in the party, described as unfortunate the governor’s grand design to destabilise APGA that gave him the platform to govern Anambra for two tenures.

“Governor Peter Obi’s family insistence through Nwobu Alor to generate fresh crisis in APGA when we have 11 months to the governorship election in that state is looking like a clear confirmation of this widely held view.

“APGA as a party has given so much to governor Obi, his government and family. The party has given the governor solid 10 years of support but all the party got back is treacherous abandonment by the governor”, he said.

Ukwa described as false, insinuations by Nwobu Alor that no reconciliation had and would take place in the party unless the national chairman of the party, Victor Umeh vacated his seat.

“I do not want to take up any personal issue with any one. As a party Elder pioneering this peace and reconciliation that has taken place in our party, I am begging members to allow peace to reign for us to assist His Excellency governor Peter Obi in Anambra state to hand over to another APGA governor.

We can not win election fighting. For those who have continued to call for the removal of the national chairman Victor Umeh, we have passed that stage,” he said.

He said there was no crisis in the party as all aggrieved members had long been reconciled by the peace and reconciliation group headed by Dr Mic Adams.

” Party affair is not an uncle, nephew business. Party has taken decision on the reconciliation and reconciliation is place and that is final”.

Ukwa said the party should at this time be preparing for the governorship election expected to hold in Anambra in the next 11 months, warning that any one engineering any controversy would not be doing the members and the party any good.

” We have only 11 months to the governorship election in that state, towards working for a replacement in Awka Government House. It will be unfortunate for a member of the governor to be an impediment to achieving that goal”.

He said that history and the people will not be kind to the Obi administration if APGA failed to hand over to another APGA governor.
