Anambra State Head of Service, Barr. Harry Uduh, has said that Ndigbo cannot jettison the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the All Progressives Congress ( APC) and other political parties.
Uduh, who responded to a comment made by the Honourable Minister of Transport Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi at an event in Awka at the weekend urging Ndigbo to dump APGA and identify with the APC which the minister described as a national party, said the transport minister was a joker for making such unfounded and baseless comment.
The Head of Service who spoke to journalists on Sunday in Awka, posited that it was practically impossible for Ndigbo to abandon APGA as the party was already in good stead to capture other southeast states as well as make an inroad into mainstream politics, adding that APGA would liberate other states from the clutches of the APC and other political elements.
He however emphasized the need for the Igbo nation to rediscover itself as well as confirm its identity and take its rightful place in the country because their relevance and achievements placed them at a vantage position in Nigeria.
According to him, there is no part of the country that Igbo people are not in good numbers as well as in the diaspora emphasizing that there is an urgent need for re-awakening and introspection among Ndigbo in the country.
