APGA and the Igbo Question draws from records in both private and public domains to give the reader insights into the struggles, disappointments and finally the triumph of the registering of APGA.
The book puts in perspective actions and in-actions of the various Nigerian political actors like Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Pres. Olusegun Obasanjo, Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu, then Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, Gen. Ike Nwachukwu, Sen. Jim Nwobodo, Gov. Orji Uzor Kalu, Gov. Peter Obi, Dr. Chris Ngige, Gov. Rochas Okorocha, Chief Victor Umeh, and many more.
Business moguls like Emeka Okwuosa, Prince Arthur Eze, Chikwe Udensi were mentioned for the roles they played in the formation of APGA which were not known by outside of the Chekwas Okorie innermost circle.
Readers and especially Ndigbo would see hitherto unrevealed details of what led to the end of the 22 year relationship between Dim Emeka Ojukwu and Chief Chekwas Okorie.
Apart from the launching in Abuja, there are plans to launch the book in Enugu, Lagos and Kano as Ndigbo across the country are clamouring to participate in the public presentation.
