Press Statement: APGA Condemns Demolition Of Ojukwu Library In Owerri



The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) strongly condemns the demolition of Ojukwu Memorial Library project in Owerri, Imo State, being erected by the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazurike to immortalize the Great Ikemba Nnewi and Eze Igbo Gburugburu, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu It is outrageous, unjust and detestable.

It is sad that some misguided elements destroyed the structure slated to be commissioned in March 2013. Dim Ojukwu lived a selfless life; he loved Ndigbo with all his heart and worked for the well-being of all Nigerians until his death. It is a sacrilege in Igboland for any person or group to conspire and destroy a befitting movement in honour of the People’s General.

We call on security agents to fish out the perpetrators of this wicked act and bring them to book. We urge all those who loved the Great Ikemba in particular and Ndigbo in general to support this library project and ensure its prompt completion. Ojukwu desired the best for Ndigbo and deserves the best structure as he lives in the minds of his loved ones, supporters and followers.

APGA highly commends the beloved wife of our dear Leader, Ambassador (Iyom) Bianca Ojukwu for her indefatigable endeavour in uniting our great party along with other eminent Party Leaders.

The party appreciates all her efforts and enjoins her to excel in her national assignment in Spain. We are highly impressed by her achievements so far. APGA will continue to support her to keep The Ojukwu legacy alive.






  1. Something is terribly wrong here. I a responding not to this writer ,but to the issue. Why should a whole structure be demolished and nobody was noticed? Was it not done in the daytime? What about security personnel there? Was it done manually? Does it take a split second to demolish a structure In this day and ae no one got a snap shot matter how distant? Something is amiss and no one can say what it is yet.
