Umeh vows to restore the lost voice of Igbo in Nigeria

National chairman of the All Progres­sives Grand Alli­ance (APGA) and senatorial candidate for
Anambra Central, Victor Umeh, has vowed to fight for the interests of the Igbo race in Nigeria, if elected into the senate.
Umeh made the declara­tion yesterday, in separate re­marks, while addressing the Ugoma community in Nkpor and residents of Ilo Okoye in Odume, Obosi in Anambra state.
The APGA candidate recalled that it was the na­tionalist struggle led by prominent Igbo like Nnamdi Azikiwe that secured inde­pendence for Nigeria and lamented that the Igbo were still being treated like a con­quered race after the civil war.
He said the Igbo race would not continue to lament but, should rather, fight for their rights in the Nigerian project by sending people of courage like him to the Na­tional Assembly to enable them reclaim their birthright.
He described an effective representative as one who can stamp his feet on the ground and struggle for the equitable allocation of resources in the National Assembly .
The APGA national chair­man enjoined his hosts to use their voter cards as weapon of liberation on election day by voting right, stressing that he has the courage to speak the truth to make a difference.
Umeh said APGA was formed as an identity and bar­gaining tool for the Igbo and assured the people of Anam­bra Central that a vote for the party would ensure continu­ity of massive development projects being executed by the Obiano administration.
Earlier, the patron of Ugo­ma community in Nkpor, Chief Alfred Okafor, assured Chief Umeh that the people were confident that he was going to the senate to speak for them.
