The occasion was a political summit tagged, ’Anambra Central senatorial zone for Chief Umeh,’ convened by the Assistant National Secretary of APGA, Prince Chukwuma Ojukwu at Awka – Etiti, aimed at educating the voters and stakeholders on why Umeh should be given the mandate in the scheduled election.

This followed alleged media attack on Umeh by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in the election, Senator Uche Ekwunife.

Speaking on the occasion, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Youth Mobilization, Chief Tony Uche, said, the summit was put together to further reject the victory robbed APGA by the PDP, and given to Senator Ekwunife in the senatorial poll.

“We are here today because we do not accept the last result of the senatorial election conducted in Anambra Central in which the PDP candidate was declared winner, when it was obvious that our candidate, Chief Umeh, won the election overwhelmingly,” Uche said.
