APC tackles APGA over comments on Ngige


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has berated the ruing All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra State for saying Labour and Employment Minister Chris Ngige had abandoned APC candidate in the November 6 election in the state, Senator Andy Uba.Uba has allegedly been insulted and attacked by some parties, which his campaign organisation has declared “enough is enough”.A statement yesterday in Awka, the state capital, by the Director of Media and Publicity of Senator Andy Uba Campaign Organisation (SAUCO), Victor Ogene, said Ngige did not reject any position in the campaign organiation.

“Despite our resolve not to further dignify the tantrums emanating from the throes of the outgoing APGA administration with responses, we are constrained to, once again, call attention to the party’s increasing recklessness.“The propaganda of APGA, titled: Chris Ngige Backs Out of Andy Uba Project, and reportedly authored by …the APGA social media team, went to the ridiculous degree of stating that the unfounded gibberish is based on an alleged recruitment of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) members to murder prominent Anambrarians to snatch (the) state by force.

“It is laughable that in their haste to throw just about any dart in the direction of Senator Uba and the APC, they forgot that their principal …had already absolved every Anambra citizen of culpability in the mayhem ravaging the state…“For the APGA desperados, however, no name, no authority is sacred in the execution of the ‘one day, one propaganda’ strategy upon which their media campaign is hinged.

“Else, they ought to have known that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Nwabueze Ngige, remains the leader of the APC in Anambra State and sits as chair of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) for the November 6, 2021 election.“In addition, the minister’s closest associate, Chief Uzoma Igbonwa, is head of the campaign’s Finance Directorate, while his younger brother, Chief Emeka Ngige (SAN) heads the legal arm. This is in addition to having his cousin, Emeka Okafor, Ide Nnobi, as the deputy governorship candidate of the APC.“We wish to advise the APGA that next time they decide to pick a target to shore up the dwindling profile of their party, they must look beyond the minister who is renowned within Nigeria, and beyond, as one person who has enormous capacity to say his mind at any time, and on any issue.“To attempt, therefore, to drag the esteemed name of our leader into issues that do not concern him is taking politicking too far…”
