    Congratulations to Sir Victor Umeh, APGA, Anambra Central and South East. Somebody has to fill the gap created for over two years in furtherance of Igbo marginalisation. If not why should it take Nigeria that long to fill a vacuum?

    Big congratulations to our honorable representative first time for our great party APGA, Chief sir Victor Umeh, OHAMADIKE, to the senate of the federal republic of Nigeria. We are very optimistic that APGA will sweep through IMO and Abia governorship elections next time and the people’s representatives too. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR ABLE AND CAPABLE AKPOKUEDIKE of Igboland, chief Willy Obiano, governor of Anambra State.

    Finally it has happened. Selfish elements in the state who decided to keep us in darkness and deny Anambra central all our allocation has been put to shame. Nothing will stop APGA from taking over the whole of southeast beginning with IMO. Long live Anambra state,long live APGA,long live Gov.Obiano, long live senator Umeh
    I love my State Anambra

    I have always said it. As far as Anambra is concerned, for as far as Sir Victor Umeh still breathes in this universe called uwa, no bloody fool in the name of politician in Anambra will contest against any choice candidate of Sir Umeh for governorship elections and win. If it comes to Anambra central senatorial or representative seats too, who born monkey to contest and win? Now, fellow Anambarians, this is a call to readjust and tow the line of honour. I have followed Sir Umeh’s political conquests right from his battle days with Chekwas Okorie, Ungrateful Obi(Ngige tussle) and the greenhorn called Uche, despite their very dishonourable ways of attaining and wanting to attain positions at all cost, irrespective of the resources available to them, Sir Umeh, not only preached but showed them that honesty, intelligence, fairness and loyalty pays, and pays handsomely. These are Sir Victor’s political weapon. I said it from when Uche was sacked from the hallowed chambers that the seat was Sir Victor’s even if the elections where conducted in 3018 and he lived till then, he still would have won. SIR VICTOR, I WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR VICTORY AT THE POLLS. GOD BLESS YOU FOR STANDING BY OBIANO TO WIN his SECOND TERM GOVERNORSHIP ELECTIONS. GOD WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO GIVE YOU PATIENCE AND TOLERANCE TO RISE ABOVE BETRAYAL AND INSULTS FROM THOSE WHO YOU ARE APPARENTLY A LOT BETTER THAN IN ANAMBRA POLITICS. GOD BLESS AND SUSTAIN YOU – AMEN

    Congratulations Chief Sir Victor Umeh(Ohamadike Ndigbo).

    Now as Nedu posited above, the battle should shift to IMO and Abia especially to liberate our brothers in bondage. APGA had done it before when they liberated IMO from the fangs of Ohakim but unfortunately and erroneously placed a deceptive candidate who have been conniving with the enemies of Ndigbo to undo us. So this victory does not call for much celebration, but preparation for bigger challenges ahead. The spirit of Odumegwu Ojukwu must be pacified.
