He debunked all claims of the embattled party chieftains, adding that they were given option of quitting the foundation/rejecting the gifts of cars, cash and other packages or be sacked.

He accused the duo of being behind the lagging behind of APGA in the area all along, and was happy to have narrowed and decisively tackled the problem.

In a quick reaction, the coordinator of the Foundation Hon Max Ujubuonu noted that its benefactor, Dr Nkoli Imo is a peace-loving public-spirited citizen who have been helping indigent and less-privileged citizens with scholarship, cash, vehicles, school fees, hairdressing/barbing salon equipment celebrated anniversary of the existence of the foundation in the area with gifts to many individuals.
