APGA places arrest warrant on Gov. T.A. Orji, Olisa Metuh, Akobundu

The All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Nigeria has called on the security agencies in the country to arrest the trio of Governor Theodore A. Orji, Mr. Olisa Metuh and retired Colonel Akobundu for allegedly thwarting the governorship election in Abia State last weekend, reports ITRealms.

APGA through his spokesman, Okwukwe Ibiam told ITRealms the Nigerian security apparatus should matter of urgency arrest the trio of out-going Governor T.A Orji, Olisa Metuh, Rtd., Colonel Akobundu and other cohorts, who openly threatened the guardians of our electoral system last Sunday at the INEC office in Umuahia, the state capital.

Ibiam in a press statement made available to ITRealms said the alleged culprits must be brought to book for openly threatening, maneuvering and causing an electoral official to reverse an existing ruling.

“We do not have to recount the mental torture the official was put through in order to achieve the dastardly end. That is no democracy. That was pure thuggery! No electoral officer may face an open or implied threat of bodily harm to his person or associates in the discharge of their duties. We cannot condone outright disrespect for legal guardians of the realm in our electoral system, or it will be open season on all those who can,” APGA decried.

He insisted that the good people of Abia State have spoken, and results may not be boldly manipulated, asserting “The APGA won fair and square!”

Ibiam who also is the national publicity secretary of APGA cited an instance with the results from Obioma Ngwa, Isiala Ngwa, Ugwunabo and localities bordering Aba, which were pure travesty. 

“They do not reflect the sentiments of similar votes cast in the Aba vicinity or other parts of Abia State where the electorate made clear, they were done with PDP Governance in Abia State. The PDP failed woefully and were rejected by the electorate, all over Abia State,” he said.

Such desperation, APGA said, from a do-nothing State Government is better described as shame, maintaining that APGA stands by the cancellations, and would call for a total re-run
monitored by appropriate Nigerian security agencies, where the people will cast their votes safely, and such votes collated at the end of the day  registered properly, in the presence of the Nigerian security forces.
