The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council has accused the National chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Dr Victor Oye, of creating unnecessary division among Ndigbo.
The OYC said it was highly condemnable for Oye to declare that the national leadership of APGA will remain in Anambra after his tenure.
In a statement signed by Mazi Okechukwu isiguzoro, the President General,
Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, he said Oye’s stand was capable of creating disaffection among Ndigbo and destroying the party.
According to him, “the current proclamation of Victor Oye is at variance with the Party’s slogan “Onye aghala Nwanneya (Be your brother’s keeper), which Victor Oye has now changed to “Nka bu nke Anyi” (meaning this is our own).”
“Does it truly mean that this party formed by Igbos are now the sole property of Anambra people or does it means that other Igbos and Nigerians who had paid the price to build APGA are now slaves to Anambra State?” He queried.
While vowing that the ugly trend must be resisted, Isiguzoro called on the BOT Chairman, Gov Willie Obiano “to use his good office to thwart this evil plot or APGA will be at the peak of political extinction.”
“APGA also stands the risk of losing Anambra guber election, as we will raise the consciousness of Nigerians and Igbos that there’s evil conspiracy in APGA, as witnessed in the last elections where they sold the party tickets to the highest bidder, which resulted into some people referring to APGA as ‘Anambra ATM card against Nigerians and Igbos’.
“We call for the re-zoning of the National Chairman of APGA. We beg all and sundry in APGA to resist this evil conspiracy or face the wrath of the Igbo nation. We will not allow any form of political slavery in the South; Gov Obiano should intervene or decamp to another party,” he further stated.
