The attention of the National Leadership of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has been drawn to the misleading reports in the media, particularly the social media, about the purported defection of some of our members to the APC in Abia State.
According to the reports, the defection was masterminded by one Nkem Okoro who also pretended that he was the Abia State Chairman of APGA.
We wish to state for the umpteenth time, having done so in recent times, that APGA in Abia State is intact and vibrant.
The purported defection was a charade orchestrated by political fugitives and turncoat in Abia State as a ploy to continue to pool wool over the eyes of their paymasters.
It is a well-known fact that Dr. Alex Otti – our former two-time governorship candidate in Abia State – moved to APC with a countable number of his Abia First collaborators. No single genuine APGA member left with him on his political harakiri.
We are aware that his inability to muster enough clout in his new party led to the present desperate moves to create misrepresentations and confusion to outwit their paymasters.
These latest moves, as usual, fell like a pack of cards.
The so-called Nkem Okoro is not a registered member of APGA and has made himself a willing tool in hands of Otti who is his clansman.
We wish to state unequivocally that the recognized executive of APGA in Abia State is the one led by Rev. Augustine Ehiemere who was reelected for a second term at the Abia State Congress of May 23, 2019.
Again, for the attention of members of our party and the general public, the ignoble, illegal and unconstitutional activities of Nkem Okoro had been reported to security agencies and he will meet his Waterloo soon.
We urge our teeming supporters, the general public and the media to discountenance anything coming from Nkem Okoro and his cohorts and treat the same with ignominy.
