The Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano, has debunked the claim by Emeka Ojukwu, the son of the late Igbo leader, Chukwuemaka Odumegwu Ojukwu, that he was being pestered by the governor to return to the All Progressives Grand Alliance.

Ojukwu had on November 15 dumped APGA for the All Progressives Congress.

In a statement recently, Ojukwu had claimed that Obiano had been making moves for him to return to APGA.

However, Obiano said Ojukwu lied against him, stressing that he had never talked to the late Igbo leader’s son since he joined the APC.

Obiano said he had nothing to gain should Ojukwu return to APGA, stressing that he (Ojukwu) had no political value in Anambra State.

In a statement by Obiano’s media aide, Oliver Okpala, the governor said he could not have approached Ojukwu to return to the APGA as he had no political clout that could be useful to the party.

The statement said, “It is a matter of pure pathetic fallacy for the Junior Ikemba to say that Governor Obiano is lobbying him to come back to APGA which he claimed he won’t accept.

The governor wondered on what grounds anybody would ever lobby Ojukwu to return to the APGA while he never held any important position to warrant being described as a stakeholder or a leader of the party when he was a member.

“In fact nobody knew that he was a member of the party, so on what grounds was he relevant to the fold?” Obiano added

The statement described Ojukwu’s son as a sad irony of his father who “in his lifetime was the champion of the struggle for the rights and emancipation of his people, standing firm with his Igbo brothers and sisters and never betraying their cause”.
