Tell Igbos All You Know About The Circumstances Surrounding Ojukwu’s Death - APC Challenges APGA Chairman, Victor Umeh

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has challenged the National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh, to release his much awaited bombshell on the circumstances leading to the heart attack and subsequent death of Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Emeka Ojukwu.

The party said during the last APGA crisis, Umeh had in an interview published in a national daily, warned Governor Peter Obi and Mrs Bianca Ojukwu to stop instigating his removal or else he would tell the whole world how Ojukwu died.

Umeh has however reconciled with Governor Obi, shortly after the Appeal Court Enugu quashed the judgment of an Enugu High Court, which sacked him as the National Chairman of APGA.

The APC in the South East region contends that as the first anniversary of Dim Emeka Ojukwu’s death on November 26, 2013 draws close,  “it is now incumbent on Chief Victor Umeh to avail the world as he promised in the newspaper report of the much Governor Obi knows about the circumstances leading to Ikemba’s heart attack and subsequent death.”

The party threw the challenge in a statement by its Zonal Publicity Secretary, Osita Okechukwu on Friday, while reacting to alleged attempts by Governor Obi to use the annual Ofala festival of Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, to blackmail Senator Chris Ngige, the APC candidate for the November 16 governorship election in the state.

The opposition party appealed to the good people of Anambra State to use the index track record performance as the yard-stick to measure who to vote for, in the November 16 governorship election.

Part of the statement reads: “We are worried that Governor Peter Obi is becoming excessively desperate in the face of the collapse of his propaganda machine, being fully aware that he achieved merely seven percent performance of the Sen Ngige’s Blue-Print in seven years.

“Recall that penultimate week, when Governor Fashola apologised to Ndigbo over the deportation of 14 Igbo, Governor Peter Obi felt disarmed and went ahead to persuade Peoples Democratic Party {PDP} leadership to replace Comrade Tony Nwoye  in INEC list.

“Now that Nwoye had gone to court, the only propaganda card left was to use the annual Ofala festival of Igwe Nnaemeka Achebe, Agbogidi, Obi of Onitsha to blackmail Senator Chris Ngige.

“To the best of our knowledge Senator Ngige is a cultured person, well brought up and cannot disrespect the great Obi of Onitsha, hence he duly got permission from the palace for the rally”

The party urged Governor Obi to concentrate on “preparing his not less than transparent hand over notes instead of attacking Senator Ngige.

“Otherwise we would be forced to remind the good people of Anambra State and indeed Nigerians of the infamous monthly N250m money haulage to Lagos by Governor Obi and the much-expected bombshell from Chief Victor Umeh on the shady circumstances surrounding the demise of Gburugburu Dikedioranma Ndigbo, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumuegwu Ojukwu, Ikemba Nnewi”.
