AWKA—STILL basking in the euphoria of his victory at the Court of Appeal which affirmed his position as national chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor, has again visited the grave side of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, saying he did so whenever he won a court case because the Ikemba Nnewi was always behind his political successes.

Umeh, who stormed the late Biafran warlord’s Nnewi country home with hundreds of APGA supporters, venerated in front of Ojukwu’s mausoleum and showered praises on him, explaining that his strength was usually renewed whenever he visited Ikemba’s graveside.

Umeh said: “I am here to renew and recharge my strength. Ojukwu groomed me for five years. Ikemba as the national leader of APGA for five years and me as the national chairman of APGA, shared many secrets together on how to guard the interest of Ndigbo in Nigeria.”
