People from the four wards and the twenty-two villages that make up Agulu trouped out en masse to Agulu Civic Centre to receive Umeh.

Speakers that spoke at the event echoed that if not for Chief Victor Umeh’s support for their son, Peter Obi, Agulu people will not be boasting today of producing a governor of Anambra State. They also said that his achievements at the national conference set him apart from other candidates.

One of the speakers explained that Agulu and Aguluizigbo which is home town of Chief Victor Umeh are brothers, and stated clearly that they will not leave their brother and support another person.

In admiration, the Present-General of Agulu People’s Union represented by Chief Leo Okeke thanked Chief Victor Umeh for standing behind their son, Chief Peter Obi all through his eight years as the governor of Anambra State.

In his speech, the President-General emeritus of Agulu People’s Union, Chief Azubuike Okoye, the Odenigbo Agulu who is also the APGA candidate for Anocha 1 State Constituency, recalled the exploits of Chief Victor Umeh at the National Confab.
