National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Oye, has received the first member of the party to declare interest in the 2023 presidential race.

Receiving Peter Umeadi, professor of Law in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and former chief judge of Anambra State at his Amawbia country home, Oye commended his courage and described him as the David of the time.

Umeadi was at Oye’s home to formally inform him of his intention to fly APGA presidential flag at next year’s general election and to seek his blessings. He was accompanied by many APGA stalwarts, including two Board of Trustees members: Uju Okeke and Patrick Obianwu, the National Deputy Chairman, South South, Ogbueshi Tony Eboka; Delta State Chairman, Afam Enemokwu and Imo State Chairman, John Iwuala.

Also in the team were Augustine Ewemere of Delta, Akwa Ibom Chairman, Joseph; Ebonyi State, El-Stephen Okoronka, coordinator of the party in Enugu State, Ernest Biosa and Deputy Chairman of Anambra State, Tony Elee. Oye, who prayed for God’s guidance for the aspirant, believed Umeadi had been called to run for president having reached the apogee of his carrier as chief judge, a position he held for eight years. Blessing Umeadi, he described him as “a good man, humble, intelligent and learned,” attributes he said were needed in a Nigerian leader.

Umeadi said he was in the race because only good leadership could bring the change Nigeria desires.

“Nigeria requires change which only good leadership could provide. We need to change the way we think so we could change the way we do things.”

Noting that he had related one way or the other with many politicians, among them the late Obafemi Awolowo, who he said his late uncle and running mate to Awolowo, Philip Umeadi (SAN), introduced him to at Ikene.

The presidential aspirant, who said uppermost in his mind was how Nigerians would reconcile with themselves across the length and breadth of the country, said his ambition was also to entrench a new political culture and galvanise different segments of the country.

“We all need to roll up our sleeves and go to work in all facets of our national life and should be able to reposition Nigeria in four years from 2023.

“I am stepping out as a champion of rule of law, separation of powers and due process. The bulwark of my presidential bid is predicated on popular votes at the polls from a majority of Nigerians. We should respect the ballots.”
