SEN. VICTOR UMEH SPEAKS ON SATURDAY'S ELECTION


Senator Victor Umeh calls for sober reflection against results of last Saturday's elections trailed by varying emotions, says the Igbos have lost the presidency and formidable representation which he was committed to championing. 

Note that Distinguished Senator Dr. Victor Umeh OFR (Ohamadike Ndigbo) is still the serving Senator Representing Anambra Central Senatorial District and shall remain in service of his people in about 3months more before the 9th assembly.

"I am going back to the Senate to ensure my constituency projects are well implemented and executed" - Sen. Victor Umeh

He assures the people of his firmness in APGA and commitment to rehabilitating the party to a more stellar and formidable strength.

He reveals there were attempts by persons persuading him to sign bond with opposition party prior to last Saturday's election which would affect his membership of APGA and betray the trust reposed in him by late Igbo Leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu of which he declined. 

"I was asked to sign to defect to the wining party if I win but I refused because of my believe in APGA" - he added

Senator Victor Umeh who was speaking on Odenigbo 99.1Fm, Obosi Anambra state, Thursday 28th February 2019 in reactions to the aftermath of the February 23rd National Assembly elections in which he vied for reelection under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) party expressed confidence that having gotten 81,000 votes devoid of thuggery, rigging or vote buying, he would have scored over 150,000 votes if his opponents had played according to the rules other than the intrigues and manipulations thereupon.

"I thank my supporters for giving me more than 81,000 votes without thuggery or money sharing"

He reemphasized his penchant for due process which hindered him from engaging in any form of malpractice in the election even against pressure/persuasions by associates and vowed to remain law abiding even in the course of seeking redress where necessary.

Senator Umeh regretted that majority of those elected from the South East are not efficient to sustain the tempo and the mission which he has already established in attempt to repositioning the situation of ndi Igbo in Nigeria especially where majority are already indicted with several corrupt charges thus, they lack the immunity to express themselves against the authorities.

He further regretted that the candidate of the PDP in Anambra Central Senatorial Election, Mrs Uche Ekwunife who obviously is impatient and insensitive to the choice of the people would likely dumb the PDP and defect to APC or any other party in her inconsistent behavior.

In his word "Anambra Central result is the worst tragedy to Ndi Igbo", Senator Victor Umeh opiums that the miscalculations of Ndi Igbo in the last concluded presidential and national assembly elections are susceptible to gross misfortune under the current administration.

Senator Victor Umeh therefore called on APGA faithfuls particularly the aggressived persons to return to the drawing board to save the party which according to him remains the best party championing the course of the Igbo people.

He noted convincingly that "APGA shall bounce back again".
