Very sad with the manner the immediate past governor of the Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi recently dumped the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), for the Peoples Democratic party (PDP), the youths say they have concluded plans to visit late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s graveside in Nnewi to invoke his spirit against Obi.
Obi’s recent defection from the ruling APGA in Anambra to the PDP has continued to generate mixed reactions in many quarters within the state.
It would be recalled Obi, until he left APGA, was its Chairman, Board of Trustee (BOT)
Our Correspondent gathered that the action of the over 5000 APGA youths in the state, was an expression that Ojukwu still remains the leader of the party, even in death.
One of the youths who preferred anonymity said “We are going to his grave again to invoke his spirit, consult him, tell him developments in the party as well as our wishes”.
He said the visit to the grave of Ojukwu by the youths would be led by some stakeholders of the party which he refused to disclose their names.
The APGA youths though, described Peter Obi’s defection as his Constitutional and fundamental rights, yet, complained was not properly done. He added the move would not in any way affect the fortunes of the party in the 2015 general elections.
But contrary to the belief of the party’s members, some political watchers in the state say the fortunes of the party took a turn for the worst when it began to consult the spirit of the dead for solutions to the challenges facing it.
