The reason APGA was formed was for the development of the Southeast. Its motto was “Onye aghana nwanne ya” (Be Your Brothers Keeper). Eze Igbo Gburugburu Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, who is the face of Igbo emancipation became the face of the party, and his goodwill, the love people had for him made the party nearly capture all the Southeast states.
With Peter Obi as the Governor, and under the wheel of ANIDS, there was massive development of Anambra state and steady incursion into Imo and Abia states and other Southeast states.
Then came the chronic drunk who never knew how the party was formed, under the evil and greedy machinations of Victor Umeh. A man that never knew Ojukwu personally in connivance with ordinary Church Bazaar Chairman Victor Oye.
They pushed out all the founding fathers of the party, and changed the motto to “nkea bu nke anyi” (This is our own).
They jettisoned what the party stood for that made people embrace it. They abandoned developmental projects that they were meant to continue, and emptied our common patrimony. They sidelined the remaining symbol of Ojukwu in the person of Iyom Bianca Odumegwu Ojukwu.
They reduced the party to a kindred meeting where hot drinks, cola nuts, and beer became their symbol. The party became that of touts who they engage to insult the life out of the people who oppose them. They swindled Ndi Imo of their hard-earned money and even sold the party to Buhari.
These bunch of godless fellows traded our people because for money. They removed the head Of Ikemba Nnewi from their Ankara, and only put it back during electioneering campaigns. Eze Igbo Gburugburu was reduced to a tool of exploitation.
The truth is that no matter what happens, Karma is still alive, and these bunch of godless people that destroyed the legacy of Ikemba will not go unpunished. Let it be remembered that the drunk Obiano, greedy Victor Umeh and ekperima Victor Oye are the ones who destroyed Ikemba’s legacy and plunged Anambra state in its current ruin.
