Umeh, who stormed the Okofia Palace, Ukpo, to pay homage to Igwe Robert Eze, received a rousing ovation from the dignitaries present at the event.

Eze was the financier of the the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the November 18th gubernatorial election in Anambra State, Dr. Tony Nwoye.

Nwoye, who was also at the event, in the spirit of sportsmanship, embraced Chief Umeh and assured him of his support.

He assured that he would work with him when he gets to the National Assembly. Nwoye is a siting lawmaker in the House of Representatives.
