National Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Chief Victor Oye, has said the party remains the only hope for Igbo people, stating that they have been made irrelevant in Nigeria's political landscape.

He called on the Ndigbo to pitch their tent with APGA to improve the fortunes of the South East in the Nigeria's political equation.

Speaking while addressing members of the party in Aba, Abia state, Oye said APGA is Ndigbo's best chance at producing a Nigerian President.

He said: “Ndigbo should know that charity begins at home. If all Igbo people are APGA, how will anybody steal our votes? We don’t vote in one direction, that why there is confusion. If all of us vote APGA, it will be difficult for anybody to rig elections in the South East. APGA is the party for Ndigbo. Unless we start from home and win the five South East states for APGA, we won’t make any progress. Every Igbo man should know that Ndigbo are nowhere in Nigeria’s political equation.

“Ndigbo should have produced the Senate President, but we failed to put our acts together and the position went to the minority. Ndigbo should shine their eyes. Unless Ndigbo wins the five South East state for APGA, it would be difficult for an Igbo to emerge Nigerian President. 2019 is another election year. We must get things right.”

Oye expressed confidence that APGA would control the South East zone in 2019, which is the next political dispensation.

“We came to office in June 2015 and since then; APGA has spread to every nook and cranny of the country. In Bayelsa state, we have two State House of Assembly seats. In Taraba, we have one Assembly seat and one House of Representatives seat. In Anambra, we have 28 out of 30 seats.

"In Abia state, it should have been 24 out of 24, but they stole it and left 11 for APGA. In Niger state, we have seven elected councilors. In 2019, all the states in the South East will be controlled by APGA.”
