The National Chairman of all progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh has apologised to the Igbo apex group, Ohaneze Ndigbo, youth wing for his inability to fulfil his promises to the group during their sports festival held in November last year.This is coming as he doled out .5million naira to the group to settle some of the outstanding debts incurred during the sports tournament that was marred with apathy as the State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano and the Son of the Late Igbo war lord, Chief Chukwuemeka Ojukwu (Jnr) also declined from the sponsorship of the tournament. 

Umeh had promised the youth wing of Ohaneze Ndigbo that he will sponsor the maiden sports tournament slated in memory of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu which was instituted to serve as a unifying factor to Anambra and by extension Igbo youths.
The tournament was flawed as the organisation claimed to have been owing some individuals and local governments that participated in different games and won certain  trophies.
Chief Victor Umeh in an interaction with the State and Local government Executives of Ohaneze Ndigbo in his campaign office at Awka, said he felt bad that the tournament recorded only 45 percent success and enjoined the youths to support him to his Anambra Central senatorial ambition to sustain the tournament and to as well make it an annual event.
“I know that I have helped Ohaneze in so many ways. I gave you a brand new bus for your activities last year with some money the day you paid me a courtesy visit in my Enugu residence.
“I have no personal problem with your state chairman, Tony-Uche. He is my son but he is not happy with me, probably because he did not make it in the APGA primaries conducted recently for the House of Assembly election. He came second with 34 votes while his rival pulled 48 votes and in the spirit of equity and fair play, it is wrong for somebody from Oba to be the Local government chairman and Tony, who hails from Ojioto to go for House of Assembly. It will amount to miscalculation and I wouldn’t have interfered in the people’s decision.
“My position as the National chairman of APGA has attracted more foes than friends for me but know that uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. I am sorry for everything; let us continue to work together as friends as we have better plans for all of you as long as you continue to support APGA government.
Earlier, the State Chairman of Ohaneze Ndigbo youth wing, Hon. Tony-uche Ezekwelu said it is most regrettable to hear that a son is at logger ahead with his father but noted that the organisation has benefited a lot from Chief Victor Umeh.
“We were pained when we got such disappointment from somebody we hold at high esteem like Ohamadike who has been a father to us but that notwithstanding, we have resolved to continue to be solidly behind you. It is our collective prayer that you make it to the senate to give a strong and courageous voice to Ndigbo” Tony said.
