The widow of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, Bianca Ojukwu, says the existence of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is under threat following the conduct of controversial primaries against her and other founding members of the party.
In a statement, Bianca alleged that the party had been hijacked by mercenaries.
She said, “As a member of this party’s board of trustees, I am deeply concerned that mercenaries would appear to have hijacked the operations of our party machinery. APGA is today facing an existential threat and the overall image of our party is in tatters.
“This will certainly have serious repercussions going into the main elections.
“I would like to use this opportunity to reach out to all aggrieved members and aspirants who, like myself, have suffered grave injustices under a system which had an abiding responsibility to its members to create an enabling electoral environment.”
Bianca contested in the APGA senatorial primary in the Anambra South district but lost to Mr Nicholas Ukachukwu. She described the exercise as horrible.
