Youth for Greater Anambra State, YGAS has warned Austin Ndigwe, a chieftain of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, to desist from malicious attack and accusation against the immediate past National Chairman, Chief Victor Umeh.
In a press statement, the YGAS’s Director of Publicity, Kingsley Elvis, said it was unfortunate that the ebullient and indefatigable erstwhile national chairman of APGA who led the party from victory to victory in various elections and over 43 lawsuits since 2005 would be vilified by a political “rookie” like Ndigwe.
Elvis said there was no evidence that Ndigwe was a founding member of the party in Anambra State; a former Board of Trustees member as well as a former member of the National Executive Committee of APGA as he claims.
He asserted that Ndigwe rather arrogated these positions to himself to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public to take him seriously in his mission to tarnish Victor Umeh’s image and justify his purported threat to forward a petition to EFCC and institute a court case.
According to Elvis, “EFCC is a reputable anti-graft agency and the court is the temple of justice that will ascertain the character of a person first before taking his petition or litigation seriously.
“Ndigwe who claimed to be a former member of APGA BOT and NEC when he never held such positions should be arrested, investigated and prosecuted for impersonation.
“The INEC office is there to verify the authentic names of the party officers at all levels as required by the Electoral Act as amended. In this era of change, rule of law and progressive governance, it is hoped that the Police and EFCC will pick up Austin Ndigwe to adduce evidence of holding the party offices he claimed and his false allegation that APGA account has not been audited for 11years when party and INEC auditors examine the account every year in line with the Electoral Act.
“INCE publishes audited accounts of political parties in national newspapers and give out copies to stakeholders, including civil society organizations, it is an electoral offence for a political party account not to be audited by the commission every year.
“It amounts to political naivety and recklessness for Austin Ndigwe to make false allegations against Umeh and claimed to be a former national officer of the party, a position he never held.”
