The Big Issue: Victor Oye, Victor Umeh Return To Trenches.
…fight over Anambra central senatorial ticket.
The political animosity between the former national chairman of APGA, Senator Victor Umeh and the incumbent national chairman Ozo Ike Victor Oye has resurfaced. This time it is not about the control of APGA structure ahead of 2021 Anambra state governorship election. The battle between Umeh and Oye is on 2023 Anambra central senatorial ticket.
According to AIF Media investigation indicates that both Umeh and Oye want to run for senate election in 2023 to represent ndi Anambra central on the platform of APGA.
By June, 2023, the tenure of Victor Oye as the national chairman of APGA will elapse. Having stayed for 2 terms of 8 years, he can not run for APGA chairmanship again. Therefore, Oye does not want to retire, he has informed his inner caucus that he would want to go to senate. As the national chairman of APGA, he will give himself the party ticket and this is where the interest of Chief Umeh who wants to return to senate in 2023 clashes with that of Oye.
Presently, Victor Oye has no capacity to run for senate in Anambra central, he is not known and can not win any election outside Amawbia, where he took the title of Ozonkpu.
Again, the evil that men do lives after them. By 2023, the extortion and duping that characterised the APGA primaries in 2019 general elections will stand against him.
Though, both Oye and Umeh are selfish and greedy leaders, Umeh is more on ground politically with massive grassroot support than Oye who became a billionaire within 4 years with no traceable source.
As APGA boils in Anambra central, all APGA governorship aspirants in 2021 are at a crossroad. Any of them who negotiates Anambra central senatorial ticket with Oye will lose Umeh’s support. And if you negotiate with Umeh, Oye will deny you APGA guber ticket.
