BY ABUCHI IFESINACHI, AWKA

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Sir Victor Umeh , OFR,  has stated that APC and other parties have lost touch with the electorate  saying that APGA has on daily basis recorded members of other political parties joining the party even as he attributed APGA formidable nature and giant strides to the purposeful leadership of the Anambra State Governor Chief Willie Obiano.

Chief Umeh who stated this at St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, Adazi – Enu, Anaocha Council Area of the State, expressed optimism that APGA has come to stay in Anambra  and would extend its political dominance to all other four south Eastern States in the 2015 general Elections

His words, ’APGA has swallowed all the parties in Anambra state, the remaining members of APC have joined APGA,  you can see Dr. Chris Ngige just came here all alone, he does not come with anybody, that shows that he does not have  any supporter anymore and it is to the good  of APGA in  the state, because everybody in this state is embracing the part, which shows it’s an added strength to APGA,

’After 2015 elections , APGA will become insurmountable to all political parties and by the grace of God, with the good work being done by our great Governor, Chief Willie Obiano which every body has attested to so many people will identify with the party.

‘The Mass exodus of people from other parties to APGA is a sign that the party has no opposition in Anambra state and would extend same to other states of the south East come 2015, ‘Umeh said.

Reacting, the senator representing Anambra Central senatorial zone at the National  Assembly, Senator Dr. Chris Nwabueze  Ngige has on Sunday, said the recent  defection of some All Progressives Congress (APC) members to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), was an act few inactive members looking for an alternative platform to  further their political pursuit.

He revealed that the leader of the group, Chief Amaechi Obidike had left the party six months before he openly declared for APGA, adding that he had earlier left for the PDP with  Sen. Annie Okonkwo before joining the All Progressives Grand Alliance, shortly after he stopped functioning as the  State chairman of  the APC.

The lawmaker who made this known to newsmen during the official dedication of St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, Adazi – Enu Anaocha Council Area of the State by His Lordship Most Rev Dr Paulinus Chukwuemeka Ezeokafor described the decampees as people who could no longer cope with the modern day politics the party was playing.

On whether the party has lost its members to APGA in the State, Sen Ngige, maintained that the party still retain its structures and would soon unleash its strategic plans to win next year general elections for APC .

His words, ’The People who left APC  have left more than six months ago, they are no longer members of our party,  that is Chief Obidike, who seize to be our chairman since last year, he is a baggage that is going elsewhere, even before now he was in  PDP, he left for PDP with Chief Annie Okonkwo, so he seized to be our member long ago, APC is alive here and we shall prove its alive at the right time.
Febuary 14th is the election date for National Assembly, we are more than ready; we are oiling all our machines, we shall pull them into space when the time comes.

I will  re-contest senatorial election  and I will win the poll. In 2011, I contested for  the National Assembly seat in the senate , if you go to the record, I didn’t come out very early enough, I declared for that seat in some five weeks to the election and somebody was there, but could not proceed, I had to come in as substitute, this time around, election is still about two and a half months away, so I don’t see why we should panic or be worried over anything.

The  truth is that we are plotting our strategic plans and we are sure that we will actualize the victory for APC in this state come 2015, ‘he said.
