A letter signed by the National Secretary of the Maxi Okwu-led APGA, Sagir Maidoya, had requested Umeh, to produce a comprehensive inventory of the party’s asset nationwide, particularly at her national secretariat in Abuja within one week.
The party further asked Umeh to give a balance sheet duly audited by a certified auditor.
The statement read in parts: “Please oblige by delivering to us the said handover at the above address within one week of receipt of this letter,” APGA demanded.
Meanwhile, Copies of the letter were also sent to the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Director , State Security Service, SSS, and the Chairmen of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, as well as the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related offences Commission, ICPC.
The party explained that in pursuant to the judgment in suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/563/2013 between Umeh, Shinkafi, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, against Okwu and four others, it had commenced the process of taking over its operations.
