Former national Chairman of th All progressive Grand Aliiance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh said the arty did not collect a dim from the Peoples Democratic party’s presidential candidate, Goodluck Jonathan in the last election.
Umeh said unlike other parties who benefited financially, the support of APGA was not monetary.
“We didn’t get into that arrangement because of monetary benefit. Not a kobo was given to anybody or APGA. Some people think that APGA, being a robust supporter of President Jonathan more than the SDP and Accord Party, which got N100 million each, then we must have got more, but I am so happy that I didn’t entangle myself in such thing.
“It would have been an opportunity for those who are worried that I am contesting the senatorial election to come and pick me up and dump me at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, cell.”
The Former APGA Chairman who is contesting to represent Anambra Central in the Senate slam Uche Ekwunife who recently defected to APC;
“Having been disqualified through her previous party, crossing over to the All Progressives Congress, APC, would mean that she would be contesting one election on two different platforms if she was allowed to contest.
“This is very absurd and I think that she is wasting her time and therefore, has to get proper legal advice. Whoever advised her that she can jump from PDP to APC and become its candidate and return to the election, has not given her proper advice.
“Assuming that she has that right, the Supreme Court judgment that I explained, has foreclosed that option. There is nothing that can make the APC present her for the election.”
