The crisis rocking the national leadership of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) has assumed a fresh dimension as the Imo State Chairman of the party; Barr Peter Ezeobi has dismissed as baseless, null, void and of no effect, the purported dissolution of the state Executive of the party and others in the South East by Chief Martin Agbaso.
This is even as the National Woman Leader of the party, Lolo Ada Orji Nwanyanwu has similarly denounced the attempt by Chief Agbaso to assume the national leadership of the party as an effort in futility insisting that APGA worldwide remains under the leadership of its indefatigable chairman, Dr Victor Ike Oye from who, according to her, the Anambra State Governor- Chief Willie Obiano collected his governorship nomination form for the November governorship election in Anambra State.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Owerri, Ezeobi unequivocally stated that Chief Agbaso is not a registered member of the party in Imo and that his name is nowhere in his ward; lamenting that his actions had inflicted a lot of unnecessary distractions which is of nuisance value to the party
“Chief Agbaso has claimed that he has dissolved the Imo State Exco of APGA and those in the other four states in the South East but the funny thing is that he is not a member of our party at both the state and at the national levels and his name is not in his ward in the Owerri North Local Government Area,” Ezeobi said.
According to him, all the chairmen of the party in the 27 LGAs of the State had already reaffirmed their position that Chief Agbaso is not a member of the party, just as the 12 wards in the Owerri, North Local Government Areas where he (Agbaso) hails from had similarly disowned him as a non-party member.
“So, with this, what else has he to offer? I regard him as an impostor because an illegal squatter in a house cannot remove his landlord who is the very owner of the house he is squatting in”.
