APGA faction demands handover note from Umeh within one week

New party leadership wants comprehensive inventory of party asset nationwide

The National Working Committee, NWC, of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA led by Maxi Okwu, has demanded a handover note from Victor Umeh.

Mr. Okwu was declared the authentic chairman of APGA by a Federal High Court, Abuja, last week, after the court ruled Mr. Umeh had stayed beyond his tenure as party chairman. Mr. Umeh has, however, appealed the judgement, claiming the judgement was given in error as the convention that produced Mr. Okwu had been nullified by the Court of Appeal.

In a letter signed by the National Secretary of the Maxi Okwu-led APGA, Sagir Maidoya, to Mr. Umeh, the party asked for a comprehensive inventory of party asset nationwide, particularly at the national secretariat within one week.

The party also asked Mr. Umeh to give it a balance sheet duly audited by a certified auditor.

“Please oblige by delivering to us the said handover at the above address within one week of the receipt of this letter,” it said.

Copies of the letter were sent to the Inspector General of Police, Director General of the State Security Service, SSS, and the Chairmen of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related offences Commission, ICPC.

The party noted Mr. Umeh’s services since 2004. It said in pursuant to the judgement in suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/563/2013 between him, Mr. Shinkafi, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, against Mr. Okwu and four others, it had commenced the process of taking over its affairs.
