    The founding National Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) Chief Chekwas Okorie has revealed that the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu was once one of the leaders of APGA in the diaspora.

    According to him, Kanu and others like him were frustrated by some happenings in the party after it was hijacked which eventually resulted in the IPOB leader quitting politics to join Radio Biafra.

    He made the revelation on Wednesday in Enugu at an event attended by members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of APGA, Naija News reports.

    At the event, Okorie announced that he has dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) and had returned to APGA after party leaders apologized to him.

    He submitted that when APGA was having challenges back then, he and others tried unsuccessfully to resolve the crisis but some stakeholders were just not ready to give peace a chance.

    “Things happened in APGA barely two years after it was founded, just barely a year after it triggered off a revolution in Nigeria.

    “We didn’t abandon the ship. We struggled to save the soul of APGA. We struggled for eight years. And the Supreme Court up to three times and no court ever ruled that APGA had a new national chairman.

    “We tried reconciliation. There were over 20 attempts to have peace; to reconcile with one another. But it was frustrated by only one side.

    “So, when we left to form another party, the UPP, it was with a heavy heart. But we had to. We felt there was no point continuing fighting. We needed to try our hands elsewhere.

    “In 2012, we founded UPP. In the same 2012, all our leaders from diaspora, including Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Uche Mefor, Egemba, all of them said they were tired of the political process in Nigeria and they moved on to join Radio Biafra,” Okorie submitted.
