PRESS RELEASE: APGA NWC Reaffirm Commitment And Support For Victor Oye Led Party Leadership


The national working committee of APGA wishes to reaffirm its commitment to sustaining the core values and fundamental objectives of APGA as a political movement with an itinerant mass appeal , driven by a focus towards providing a clear alternative platform , based , as it were , on true democratic principles and ideals and the rule of law .                                              

Accordingly , the national leadership of the party under   Dr. Victor Ike Oye  , as national chairman has continued to maintain the highest sense of duty and commitment towards building bridges of friendship across political , religious and ideological divides.

To this end we must continue to advise ourselves that the survival of democracy in Nigeria largely depends on the Rule of Law and the immutable conduct of the judiciary . On our part as politicians , we must remain undeniably central to promoting and strengthening democracy and the rule of law through transparency and exemplary conduct .                                                                                

Once more , we wish to place on record that on the 21st of December 2016 , the National Executive Committee ( NEC) comprising the leader of the party , His Excellency , Governor Willie Obiano , members of the board of trustees , members of national working committee (NWC) , all state chairmen and secretaries , members of the national and state assemblies from the party ,  etc etc , reaffirmed Dr victor Ike Oye as the national chairman of the party  , and passed a vote of confidence on his leadership of the party .

The same NEC meeting , confirmed and ratified  the expulsion of late OZO Nwabueze Okafor , okechukwu Nkoloagu , Chuks Nwoga , jerry Obasi , Campbell Umenzekwe , Ezinne Amaka Agbiogwu ,and Terry Godfrey from the party for gross anti-party activities .                                

We wish to recall that the expelled members had instituted a court action at the High Court of the FCT Abuja challenging the leadership of our national chairman , Dr victor Ike Oye. That FCT Abuja High court matter is now pending at the Court of Appeal Abuja Division following an appeal on an interlocutory ruling of the FCT High court. The said appeal is listed for hearing on the 1st of June 2017.                                                                  

So , notwithstanding their expulsion from the party , and the pendency of the matter at the Court of Appeal Abuja division , the said expelled members met in owerri , IMO state , purportedly as NWC  to take numerous nefarious decisions against the party , including clandestinely instituting an action at the High Court of Enugu state , using one mike Anioke as 1st plaintiff and APGA as the 2nd plaintiff ,without the knowledge of the National working Committee of APGA . Consequently , on Monday 22nd day of May 2017 , Hon. Justice A R Ozoemena  made directory consequential orders upon an undefended suit surreptitiously instituted against INEC , IGP , and C P ,Enugu state .                                                              

The National  Working Committee of APGA wishes therefore to make a clear and categorical statement as follows;                                                                          

1.That Dr. Victor Ike  Oye still remains the national chairman of APGA (as we were not a party to the suit E/192m/2017 ).                                                                

2. That the judgment of Hon. Justice AR ozoemena in suit no. E/ 192 m/2017  , delivered on 22 / 05/ 2017 , was procured through fraudulent manipulation of the judicial process , fraudulent concealment and misrepresentation of material facts , deceit to court , and  flagrant contempt to the Court of Appeal Abuja Division , ceased of the earlier case on the same subject matter of rightful leadership of the party .                          

3. That the national chairman of APGA , Dr ,victor Ike Oye was never made a party to the suit  .                                                                                      
4. That  APGA was fraudulently made a plaintiff in the suit without the knowledge of the national working committee.                                                                                        

5.That the sponsors of this court matter at the High court in Enugu did not disclose to court that they had been expelled from the party.                                          

6.That the High court in Enugu was not informed of the pendency of the matter coming up for hearing at the Court of Appeal on the 1st of June 2017.                                                                                                            
7. That even the parties on record in the said suit no .E / 192m /2017 were unaware of the pendency of the suit as the purported service of court processes were fraudulently manipulated .                                                
Therefore , the national working committee (NWC) of our great party , under the leadership of Dr victor Ike Oye , completely dissociates our party from the said suit . We also wish to assure our teeming members and supporters that we are very much on top of the situation .                                                                        

Sgd. Hon(sir) Ifeatu Obi-Okoye  ksc.                                                                                      
National Publicity Secretary, APGA
