The national chairman of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Chekwas Okorie, has disclosed that late Biafran warlord, Odumegwu Ojukwu, was not the founder of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

According to former national chairman of APGA, Ojukwu joined APGA six months after the registration of the party.

Okorie in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Friday said, “I’m the undisputed founder of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

“On the 24th of December 2002, Ojukwu agreed to become a member of APGA after I had consented to propose him as our presidential candidate for the 2003 presidential election.”

He further revealed that it was about six months later that Ojukwu was persuaded to dump the defunct APP for the APGA.

Okorie blamed the distortion of the history of APGA on the former national treasurer and national chairman of the party, Victor Umeh, who he accused of deliberate distortion of facts.
