A cross section of members of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), under the aegis of APGA Aggrieved Forum, has given the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) a nine-day ultimatum to sack the National Chairman of the party, Chief Victor Oye, or face abysmal failure in the March 9 governorship and State House of Assembly elections.

Made up mainly of aspirants of the party in last year’s primary election, the group warned the BoT chairman of the party and Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, not to joke with their demand as such would spell doom for the party.

But in a swift reaction, Oye described the group calling for his sack as an insignificant few whose aim was to cause division in the party.

The group had made it categorically clear that if Obiano failed to do their bidding, APGA would fail woefully in the state parliamentary elections especially in Anambra State.

Speaking at a press briefing in Awka, the spokesperson of the group, Mr. Onyeka Mbanaso, alleged that APGA under the leadership of Oye had performed poorly, and failure to put him aside would see the party being overrun by the opposition in the coming elections.

He said: “We are giving Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano nine-day ultimatum to sack the national chairman of the party, Chief Victor Oye,” adding that they wanted him to return monies he made from aspirants during the primary election.

“What happened in last Saturday election where APGA performed poorly is a preamble of what will befall the party during next week’s House of Assembly election across the 30 state constituencies if necessary action is not taken.

“So, we the aggrieved members of this party, are calling on the Board of Trustees Chairman who is also the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, and other concerned stakeholders to sack Chief Victor Oye.”

However, Oye in his reaction said the aggrieved members were an insignificant few, that were merely seeking a way to cause division in the party.

Oye boasted that APGA had never been as strong as it was now, stressing that the party put up a strong fight in last Saturday’s election and as a result won 11 House of Representative seats across the country.

He said: “APGA is the third biggest political party in the country. We all know why last Saturday’s election went that way, and I can assure you that the House of Assembly election will be a totally different ball game.”
