ABUJA — National Chairman of All progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, faction, Maxi Okwu, has said the party’s leadership under him remained the authentic until the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, or competent court of law said otherwise.
Okwu, who spoke at the town hall meeting with APGA members in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, weekend, said Chief Victor Umeh was gone, adding that what he was carrying around was just a court order.
Okwu, who also paid a visit to the Eze Igbo 1, Abuja, Dr. Nwosu Ibe as part of an advocacy campaign to take the new APGA leadership to the people, noted, however, that he was not nursing any fear that INEC might nullify the party convention held in Awka where he emerged.
He said: “ “I am not afraid the INEC will annul the national convention of the party held in Awka, where I emerged victorious as the national chairman.
”No I am not afraid but I am merely stating the obvious. Only a court of law or INEC can change the situation. But as I speak with you, INEC is with us. INEC was with us in Awka to observe the convention.
