Peter Obi hasn’t dumped APGA, says Oye

Posted 4 months, 2 wks ago
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Chief Victor Oye, on Monday said steps were being taken to reconcile and bring back aggrieved members of the party.

He said he had reached out to such members with a view to making the party formidable for the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.

Asked whether one of those the party had reached out to was a former governor of the state, Mr. Peter Obi, who dumped APGA for the Peoples Democratic Party in 2014, Oye said he had not seen any resignation letter from Obi.

He said, “I’m talking to you as the National Chairman of APGA. Obi is still our member. I have not seen any resignation letter from APGA from Obi.”

Oye, however, said at some point, Obi was aggrieved, but that the party had  been  talking  with him for reconciliation.

He expressed confidence that Obi would be back to APGA .

He said, “In the first place, he did not leave the party. I am the national chairman of the party and I did not receive any letter from him saying he was leaving. I hold him by his words because he had always said that he would never leave APGA until he quits politics.

“He is still in politics today, and that means he is still in APGA. He is a very important member of our party, and we are talking with him, and very soon, you will see him in APGA.”

On whether Obi would support Governor Willie Obiano’s re-election despite the frosty relationship between the two, Oye said Obi had no option but to support Obiano.

He said, “Forget what you hear, this is politics. Obi laid the foundation of this state, and Obiano is building the super structures on that foundation. You cannot see the foundation, but you can see the structure, but the structure would not be there if the foundation was not laid, and that foundation was laid by Obi.

“He has no other option but to support the man who is building on a foundation he laid. So, Obi will support Obiano’s re-election.”
