The incumbent national chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Ike Oye, did not acknowledge Senator Victor Umeh’s presence at a gathering in Oye’s Amawbia Community in the state’s Awka South local government area, according to Senator Victor Umeh, the Labour Party’s senatorial candidate for Anambra Central in the general election scheduled for next month. This is allegedly due to the growing support for the LP nationwide.
Umeh, who switched from the APGA to the LP after losing the party’s senate primary, was present to see Professor Lilian Orogbu, the Labour Party candidate for the Awka North/South Federal Constituency, officially confirmed as Ada Di Ebube Ndigbo. Orogbu served as the previous dean of the Faculty of Management Sciences at Nnamdi Azikiwe University.
Victor Umeh Pledges To Work With Obi, Picks Labour Party Senatorial Ticket
Umeh claims that the APGA national chairman disregarded him because he was uneasy about the possibility that the Labour Party would take his political ward on February 25, 2023.
He said: “I am not bothered about anybody’s handshake. There is nothing much to that as I am used to such things in my political carrier.
“I made huge contributions to the party when I was the national chairman of APGA and so, I am not bothered.
“What is important for me now is the mission we have at hand and that is how to solve the leadership problem in Nigeria by electing Mr. Peter Obi as the next President of Nigeria. And nothing can distract us from that mission.”
