Blame Umeh for APGA woes — Obiogbolu

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and a former governorship aspirant in Anambra State, Dr Alex Obiogbolu,  has warned  All Progressives Grand  Alliance, APGA, and the Central senatorial candidate, Chief Victor Umeh, to stop deluding themselves and deceiving their members.

He stated this in reaction to the comments made by Umeh, a  former National  Chairman of  APGA, calling on  the people of the zone to hold former Governor  Peter Obi  responsible for the non-representation of the zone at the Senate.

Obiogbolu wondered why APGA and Umeh were afraid of “Obi who they had  chased away from the party after he had built  APGA into a household name in Anambra State”.

He went on: “This is a man who had built the leaders and their party, and when it was convenient for them, they chased him from the party believing that his political usefulness was exhausted. Now, they are afraid that the same person they claimed was no longer useful has become their Achilles heel”.

He reminded the APGA leadership that  Obi never wanted to go to the Senate and could had done so like most of his former colleagues after he left office as governor.

He said Obi’s candidature was as a result of APGA’s own design after Umeh challenged the election of Senator Uche Ekwunife, got the nullification and was granted his desire for a rerun.

He wondered why they would then delude themselves into dreaming that only APGA will contest the re-run election against prevailing democratic norms.
