Stakeholders in the Chief Maxi Okwu-led faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) yesterday said Chief Victor Umeh, according to the constitution of the party, has ceased to be its national chairman because his eight years’ tenure as chairman ended since 2010.

The stakeholders had in an 11 point communique issued after a meeting in Awka, the Anambra State capital, also enjoined Umeh to stop all court litigations against the party because the money spent on such litigations should have been better channeled towards the development of the state and repositioning the party.

The communique, signed by the factional state chairman of the party, Chief Shedrack Anakwue, and local government chairmen of the party said in keeping with the APGA constitution, Umeh has nothing more to offer APGA as a party, while re-affirming the confidence of APGA supporters in the Okwu-led leadership.

Okwu, the stakeholders’ resolution said, was a visionary who was duly elected as APGA national chairman in a credible convention after Umeh’s tenure expired and his emergence re-affirmed by a court of competent jurisdiction.

They therefore pledged their total support to Okwu’s leadership and to stand by him so that he would succeed as the national chairman of APGA, adding that the party members are ready to resist any further interference with the leadership of the party.

While thanking the former Governor of the state, Chief Peter Obi for his efforts to develop the state, the communique further enjoined Umeh to learn to respect the judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction which they argued subsists until it is vacated by a superior court or an order of stay of execution.
