Imo APGA disowns Agbaso as national chairman

Imo APGA disowns Agbaso as national chairman

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”.
