Chief Victor Umeh, a chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has revealed that some people do not like him because of his determination to keep his party alive.
While speaking in Abagana, Umeh, who will be contesting in Saturday’s senatorial elections in Anambra state said that some individuals recorded his statements and sent them to the federal government in order to make him an enemy of people in ‘the corridors of power’.
“My offence is that I fought and defended APGA. They will continue to pursue me. For 15 years I have laboured for APGA. There are some people who through my work left the party. When APGA won in 2003 but someone else took the position I fought and reclaimed it.
Those who vowed that Obiano should not go for second term have vanished. As for Saturday election, it must hold. God has said so.
But we have not been where we are supposed to be. If election is conducted and I win, we shall begin a new dawn.”
He said that for 15 years he had fought for APGA and defeated many opponents of his party.
