Victor Umeh Denies Rift With Obiano Over Transition Chairmen


The attention of Chief Victor Umeh’s Senatorial Campaign Media Directorate has been drawn to a false and unfounded news story contained in page 42 of the Nation Newspapers of Tuesday 12th June 2016 captioned “Obiano, Umeh quarrel over Transition Chairmen”. 

 In the said news item the writer in his imagination tried to create the wrong impression that the Governor of the State Chief Willie Obiano is at war with Chief Umeh former National Chairman of the party (APGA) and the Party’s Senatorial candidate  for Anambra Central Senatorial Zone. 

 We wish to state here categorically, that the said sponsored story is the handwork of political evil merchants who do not wish the party and the State Government well. 

 Not only was the story completely false it contained very malicious insinuations initiated by the sponsors in order to misinform the public and party Faithfull’s on the relationship between Chief Umeh and the State Governor. 

 For the purpose of proper information and putting the facts crystal clear, there has never been any discussion either in private or public between Chief Umueh and Governor Obiano in relation to the issue of transition Chairmen, let alone disagreeing. 

 Chief Umueh’s relationship with the State Governor, Chief Obiano is very cordial and as solid as the rock of Gibraltar.  No amount of evil wishes or plans will succeed in destroying the good image and relationship between Chief Umeh and Governor Obiano. 

 Chief Umeh is a good team player and respecter of constituted authority, it therefore follows that he is very supportive of Governor Obiano and the Anambra State Government. 

 He has in different fora, publicly declared his support and appreciation over the way and pragmatic manner Governor Obiano has been running the Government of Anambra State which has led to the provision of abundant democratic dividends to the good people of Anambra State. 

 It will be recalled that Chief Umeh was physically present in Lagos over the weekend to give moral and physical support to Governor Obiano as he received the Zik Prize Award for Good Governance just 2 days before the deceitful and antagonistic media report. 

 We strongly believe and support the right of Media Houses to disseminate information to the public without hindrance but in doing so caution must be placed on the authenticity and sacredness of facts and figures to be published.

Finally, we urge those behind this dangerous and criminally minded report to retrace their steps and return to the path of social decorum and political rectitude.
