Ojukwu Son blasts Obiano for his defect to APC


Emeka Ojukwu Jnr, who’s the son of the late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu, has asked the Anambra state governor, Willie Obiano, to stop worrying himself over his defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC), adding that he has no plans not return to the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

Ojukwu had during President Buhari's visit to Anambra State for the grand finale campaign of the APC candidate for the November 18 Anambra governorship election, Dr Tony Nwoye, dumped APGA for the APC.

Obiano was recently reported to have described Emeka Ojukwu's defection to APC as of no consequence, insisting that he had no political relevance in the state.

But speaking with journalists in Awka on Monday, Ojukwu said he was toeing his father’s steps in  ensuring that the Igbos were launched back to the mainstream politics of the country.

He recalled how his father joined the National Party of Nigeria shortly after he returned from exile in 1982 instead of the Nigeria Peoples Party, insisting that the Igbo would not benefit anything by wallowing in sentiment.

He said: “I can afford to stay back  in APGA and wallow in sentimental politics that the party belongs to the Igbo, but in the long run, what becomes of our tomorrow and place in the great Nigeria project, for which our forefathers laboured, invested their time, talent and even their blood?

“Which is preferable: to be a big fish in a small pond or a big fish in the ocean? Real champions are never afraid of the big league. That could be why late Dr. Chuba Okadigbo asserted that if you could reason beyond ethnic sentiments, you are a liability to mankind. Ndigbo are not better off with emotional politics," he said.

Ojukwu further blasted the Anambra governor.

"So, while they seek to crucify me for joining APC, they express support and solidarity for the APC leader. Which is worse, to walk the talk or pander to politics of deceit and duplicity? What is the essence of being in a party that would rather support the presidential candidate of another party than choose its own?

"Ndigbo having supported Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan in office, owe President Buhari a duty of support in the spirit of fairness and political goodwill  so that when a president of  Igbo extraction will  emerge  other ethnic groups will  reciprocate," he added.

Heavy Defection hits APC

Barring any change, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may be hit by mass defection, in the next few months.

Daily Sun gathered that some APC governors, senators and members of the House of Representatives are seriously dissatisfied with events in the ruling party.

Some of them are said to have cut a deal with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with a view to joining the opposition political party.

This is coming at a time the PDP has declared that its platform was open to all Nigerians to actualise their dreams of contesting elections.

But reacting, National Publicity of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, told Daily Sun that the party won’t want to react to such information when no name of any governor or chieftain was mentioned.

However, competent sources among those who attended the PDP’s recent National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Asaba, Delta State capital, revealed that top APC members, who will defect may join the PDP latest by May.
