Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Emeka Ihedioha has been asked to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and align with the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to advance his political career.
Chairman of APGA, Victor Oye, who gave this advice, added that the PDP had lost its political fortunes, especially in the South-East.
“Ihedioha came for my daughter’s traditional marriage on February 25, 2017. He was with me for over four hours and I told him that if he continues with PDP, he will not achieve anything in Imo. I asked him to join APGA, but he is still there grappling with PDP,” the APGA chairman said.
Oye also advised the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to drop its agitations and join forces with APGA, stressing that the proscription of the group as a terrorist organisation by the Federal Government may not permit them to carry out their mission legitimately.
The APGA chieftain made the remarks when retired Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Charles Ugomuoh, paid him a courtesy visit to declare for Imo East Senatorial District in the 2019 general election.
