That i stole N19m from APGA national secretariat is laughable, says Agbaso

A factional leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Martins Agbaso has denied carting away N19m from the national headquarters of the party as alleged by the party’s National Chairman, Victor Oye.

Agbaso in a statement signed by the spokesman of his faction, Onapuruagu Ukaegbu, said alleging a theft of the sum of N19m from the party’s national secretariat, is laughable.

“As humourous and wild as these allegations are, we are mindful of Oye’s background as a failed Nollywood scriptwriter and his predisposition to mix up facts with fiction.

“However, APGA wishes to refresh the memories of Oye as to the reasons which led to his sack being the main breaches of the provisions of APGA Constitution of which he has now publicly acknowledged.

"Article 13(7)(a) of APGA Constitution stipulates the way and manner in which party funds ought to be handled. Leaving party funds in an imaginary safe in the party office is clearly outside the scope of APGA law, flaunting this provision is not only reprehensible but criminal and Oye will face the full weight of the law accordingly," he said.

The statement added that they are not unmindful that the N1­9m bandied by Oye was part of the party funds he misappropriated and that his current Wolf cry is an antic to retire funds criminally gleaned from the party.

"It is only in Nollywood conjectures that a man who lay claims to his sanity would allege that a hefty sum of N19m was stolen under the nose of officers of the Nigerian Police sent specifically by the Inspector-General of Police to guard against and maintain law and order," Agbaso said.
