-Accuses Nat’l of swindling him,others

The least has not been heard of the controversial governorship primary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance,APGA held in Owerri 16th April, 2023 as a frontline aspirant to the contest,Dr. Ngozi Aririguzo has taken the state and National officers of the party to the cleaners over what she described criminal plot to further swindle.

She rejected and  condemned in  very strong term  the horse trading that characterised the excercise which she said she wasn’t given opportunity to   participate owing to the questionable and dubious  manner with which they went about the exercise.  

. Aririguzo who stated this during a press briefing in Owerri yesterday said she had waited for either  the state or National  executives to come up with a guideline for the primary  but all to no avail.”Surprisely when I got to APGA office at Egbu Road to ascertain  what went wrong,I discovered that  they had  changed the delegate list  for non APGA members.   This caused uprising to a point that t the people whose name were in the original list started making troubles and when they couldn’t contend the them, they started looking for a alternative to hold the primaries. They changed the venue again twice that same day”. 

Dr. Ngozi ,a former state officer of Imo APGA who to many is a  woman of integrity,quite  unassuming  accused the State leadership of APGA of working hard  to  destroy the party in Imo.

She berated the Imo state chairman of APGA,Chief John Iwuala for not living of up to expectation,noting  that, when there  is problem in the state it is expected the chairman addresses the problem,however where he fails to do what he ought to do ,the   hammer  falls on him and at time,he will be left alwho has  failed to do what he ought to do to save the party from destruction, the hammer will fall on him. 

Aririguzo also accused the national body led by Chief Victor Oye  of defrauding her and unsuspecting 

Imolites.She said, things must change in APGA that the era of extorting people in the name of selling forms, even though they have made up their mind on who to give their ticket is gone. She regretted that since she bought her form, both National and State body of the party didn’t inform her about the primaries.
