There was palpable tension in Anambra as the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) reportedly sacked its National chairman, Chief Victor Oye.

This is coming barely 24 hours after former CBN governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo was cleared by the party and five others disqualified. The NWC in the place of Oye, named Chief Jude Okeke as his replacement. The party also suspended some of its prominent members, including Hon. Chinedu Obidigwe and Edozie Njoku from the party.

Meanwhile, Chief Victor Oye has denied that he was sacked by the party. In an interview to newsmen, Oye said, “It is what we see in every primary election, so no shaking. “If this were in the civilized country, they will be arrested and jailed. There is a procedure and you have to give INEC a notice to be able to convene a National working committee. It is the chairman National Electoral Committee that convenes NWC.

“I don’t know them. This people do not exist and I’m surprised that people are giving it publicity. What they did is media sack. Those people do not exist and they should be dealt with.” Meanwhile, the party also announced that the sale of its gubernatorial forms has been extended, while also annulling the screening conducted of the governorship aspirants by the party.
