A former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Chief Senator Victor Umeh, has stated that the mass movement trailing the Presidential aspiration of the Labour Party candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, is giving the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party, “sleepless nights” and “serious scare”.

He stated this in an interactive section with some members of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Anambra State Council, in Awka, on Tuesday.

Senator Umeh also urged the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, for peace to return to the South-East.

The former National ChairmanAPGA

said, “The support of Nigerians for the former Governor of Anambra State and the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi, is giving sleepless nights and serious scare to members of the All Progressives Congress, the Peoples Democratic Party and other parties ahead of the 2023 elections.

“The APC, PDP and other political parties are afraid of Mr. Peter Obi because of his resolve to banish poverty and ability to manage resources.”

Chief Umeh said Obi left the PDP because of the grand plot and sabotage against the Igbo and the entire South-East geo-political zone in their quest for the Presidency of the Country.

He added that the brazen act of denying the South-East and Ndigbo to produce the President by the two major parties of the APC and PDP was totally unacceptable and against the principles and letters of zoning arrangement between the North and the South.

The former National Chairman APGA said, ”If you look at the Presidential primaries of the APC and the PDP, the Igbo would have buried their heads in shame if not for Mr. Peter Obi and the Labour Party.

”Nigerians of all shades of opinion are rallying around Mr. Peter Obi. Nigerians must show commitment and love. What is happening is divine. Mr. Obi is a hot brand.

“We are urging Nigerians to rally round Mr. Peter Obi. Peter Obi stands for the good of Nigeria and the citizens. The hope Nigerians need is Peter Obi, even in the midst of plenty he cannot waste the resources.

“Obi’s movement is a revolution that will take Nigeria far. He is a role model.”

Senator Umeh, who left APGA to clinch the senatorial ticket of the LP, said his exit from APGA was the wish of God, adding that his defection offered him the opportunity to mend fences with his brother, Mr. Peter Obi, which had gone awry about 10 years ago.

He also pointed out that the continued detention of Kanu was the reason for the growing insecurity in the South-East.

According to him, both genuine and fake agitators are claiming to be fighting for the IPOB leader, adding that the Federal Government should adopt proper dialogue with IPOB as a mechanism in resolving the conflict.

The former National Chairman APGA said, ”Dialogue between the government and IPOB is the only way to resolve the problem. I subscribe that this government pursues a political solution as a way of resolving the insecurity in the South-East.

“The Federal Government should adopt proper mechanisms in conflict resolution.”

He urged Nigerians to send the best of their representatives to the 10th Senate, stressing, “The future of Nigeria will be discussed in the 10th Senate. Everything that will make Nigeria work is needed.”
