Former National chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Umeh who recently won the Anambra Central senatorial District rerun election has said enemies of the zone were working to ensure that they keep the Anambra central seat in the senate vacant until the end of the 8th Senate.
Umeh blamed them for the lost time, saying he would use the remaining 18 months of his term in the senate to impact on his constituents once sworn in.
The APGA chieftain told journalists in an interview in Awka that he would support the leadership of the 8th Senate as soon as he is sworn in.
He said, “I am well aware that I have limited time to spend before the end of the 8th Senate, but I will never be limited by time in the things I believe I can do.
“Lost time is lost. We look forward to the present and the future. I still have 18months to work for my people. I have always said I am never limited with time.
“By the time I get there, I will do my utmost best to support the present leadership of the Senate. I will try to be ingenious in making my own contribution to the good of my people and the entire Nigerians.
“I will explore the possibility of receiving the needed attention from the leadership. They have to look at my constituency with pity for what has happened to us,” he added.
He described as selfish those who insisted on keeping the seat vacant till the expiration of the current Senate, attributing his victory to divine interventions.
He also applauded the Court of Appeal for rising to the occasion, as well as the Federal High Court judge that nearly caused the miscarriage of justice by doing what it could have done abinitio.
