A group, the RealValue Generation Initiative, has petitioned the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Abubakar, over allegation of impersonation and forgery levelled against the Anambra State governor, Mr. Peter Obi and 41 other prominent members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
The group in the petition dated 18th February, signed by Barr. Chukwuma Nwachukwu and made available to LEADERSHIP yesterday accused the governor of convening a meeting where acting executive members of the party were appointed. This, the group said contravened sections of the constitution, since the case was still in court.
"Our clients have followed development in the polity, especially the internal wrangling in the APGA. They are aware of the recent judgement of the Enugu State High court presided over by the chief judge of Enugu State delivered on the 8th of February, 2013 whereby the judge nullified the outcome of the party's national convention.
"The defendant in the suit, Chief Victor Umeh has lodged an appeal against the outcome at the court of Appeal Enugu Division. In a rather vexatious show of impunity, the governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi convened a gathering under the guise of national caucus of the APGA and purportedly appointed Barr. Maxi Okwu and Alhaji Sanni Shinkafi as acting national chairman and secretary respectively," he said.
The group urged the IGP to investigate the alleged offences against all those mentioned in the petition with a view to ascertaining their culpability.
