The Governorship canditate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the 2015 and 2019 election, Dr. Alex Otti, has accused the Governor of Anambra state and the leader of the party, Willie Obiano for being the reason for the crisis in APGA.

Insisting that he has no personal issues with the Anambra Governor, Otti said he only disagreed with the way the former Chairman of the party, Victor Oye was returned as Chairman by the Governor.

Speaking in a recent interview, Otti said:

"I don’t have any issue with Governor Obiano as a person, I only disagreed with him on the way he returned the former chairman of the party, Victor Oye who messed up the last primaries in some states, particularly Imo and Abia.

"Many people complained about being extorted by the former Chairman promising to hand them tickets which he failed to do. There were a lot of protests against the former Chairman and but the leader of the party insisted on imposing him for a second term.

"That action led to the factionalisation of the party. Unfortunately, two other people are laying claims to the Chairmanship of the party at the moment. I sincerely believe that if we sat down to organize ourselves, the party wouldn’t be having the problems it has today.

"But he insisted that he wanted to give Victor Oye a second tenure as the leader of the party, so it’s for members of the party to decide how they want to react to that. I have taken my own decision.

He feared that the party might lose Anambra in the forthcoming election if it continues with impunity

"There is an election coming up in Anambra soon and I believe that if the party continues to carry on with impunity ignoring many voices that have raised objections against the way things are done, it will be a miracle for the party to hold on to the State.

"Other than that, Obiano and I have great relationship, we are friends, we were in the banking industry together and I gave my little support to his second term bid," he said.
