The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC says it recognizes Dr Victor Oye and Mr Labaran Maku as National Chairman and Secretary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA.
The National Commissioner of INEC in charge of Information and Voter Education Mr Festus Okoye stated this in a Television programme which also featured a one time National Chairman of APGA and immediate past Senator representing Anambra Central at the National Assembly Chief Victor Umeh.
According to INEC Commissioner, the commission has never at any time said that APGA will not participate in November sixth Anambra State governorship election and was not stated in any of its letters.
For Chief Victor Umeh who also participated in the programme APGA published its intension to conduct delegates election on the fifteenth of this Month on two National dailies on the twenty-first April according to electoral law.
Chief Umeh who described INEC as a public institution called on the commission to withdraw its mysterious and misconstrued letter and re-write-it urging the Commission not to lay a foundation for mischief.
According to Chief Umeh none of the four aspirants from APGA approached INEC and wondered why the commission wrote such a letter which has gone viral and created panic to the public.
Chief Umeh cited the Supreme Court judgment of eight January 2016 on a matter between Shinkafi and Yari which said that political parties must not write INEC before conducting delegates election.
Recall that a mainstream Newspaper three days ago claimed that APGA will be disqualified from the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State because according to the Tabloid the party did not notify INEC of the special ward congress it held on June fifteenth to choose the delegates for the primary election.
