Bianca Ojukwu Says APGA Has Been Hijacked, Vows To Recover It



Bianca Ojukwu Nnamdi Kanu

Widow of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu Monday said that mercenaries had taken over the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, but vowed that the soul of the party would be recovered.

It was her first public reaction to her defeat in the party’s Anambra South Senatorial primary which was won by Evangelist Nicholas Ukachukwu. She said the primary which took place in Ekwulobia, Agauta Local Government Area was crooked and warned that if the present system in the party is not reversed that the party could well implode.

She nevertheless tasked party members not to abandon the party.

She said:

“As a member of this party’s board of trustees, I am deeply concerned that mercenaries would appear to have hijacked the operations of our party machinery. APGA is today facing an existential threat and the overall image of our party is in tatters. This will certainly have serious repercussions going into the main elections.

“I would like to use this opportunity to reach out to all aggrieved members and aspirants who, like myself, have suffered grave injustices under a system, which had an abiding responsibility to its members to create an enabling electoral environment, and which has refused to hold to account those officials who had a cardinal duty to promote a free and fair process, but who were more concerned with exacting levies and other fringe benefits.

“Our harrowing experiences through this process have exposed to all and sundry, the fault lines of this party and the basic truth that APGA cannot endure unless we do something dramatically different.

“But we must reclaim the soul of this party because to remain neutral in this endeavour is to take sides with the status quo.

“We must all refuse to abandon APGA to emergency cashiers and political adventurers who would appear to have hijacked this party, and who neither understand its essence, nor subscribe to its ideology. We, the real members of APGA, who fought so valiantly, will prevail in the end.

” I wish to express my immense gratitude to the army of tireless and dedicated individuals who worked on my campaign, to the relentless foot soldiers who trumped with me across the various communities in Anambra South Senatorial zone, to my indefatigable media team and to my supporters and sympathizers for their commitment to a greater cause.

‘We fought hard, but were stopped by forces within this party that were not comfortable with the prospects of my emergence. But God will vindicate the just.

“Most of all, I am immensely grateful to our Almighty God who saw us through this process and I urge you all not to lose hope. Our task has just begun.”
