The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the forthcoming November 18, Anambra State governorship election, Dr Tony Nwoye has urged members of the party to brace up to the challenge of ensuring that the party came out victorious in the poll.
Addressing the APC major stakeholders from the 21 local government areas of the state at Finotel hotel, Awka, the state capital shortly before inaugurating members of his governorship campaign committee, Nwoye thanked them for their loyalty to the party, especially since after the primary that produced him as the governorship candidate.
He stated that he had already reached out to all his co-contestants for the APC governorship ticket, including his former boss, Senator Andy Uba, the party’s national Auditor, Chief George Muoghalu, Chief Barth Nwibe, Chief Obidigbo, Mr. JohnBoscoOnunkwo, Mr. NonsoMadu,etc to appeal to any of them who might not be happy with his emergence to have a change of mind and work for the interest of the party.
Dismissing the insinuation from the camp of the opposition that APC is a Yoruba-Hausa-Fulani political party, as immaterial, the former President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) stated that those making the insinuation were simply trying to deceive the gullible minds, stating that after all it is not a Yoruba or Hausa-Fulani person that would become governor of the state when APC wins.
Nwoye stated, “ We must win this election at all costs. We must not allow us to be defeated. After we have won let anybody who is aggrieved go to court.
“I want to assure all my co- contestants that there is no victor, no vanquished. If we win, I am not going to abandon politicians, politician are going to run my administration. They say ‘politics is not a profession’. I don’t agree. APC government in Anambra State will be run by politicians,” Nwoye stated.
Also speaking, Muoghalu appealed to all the aggrieved members of party to sheath their sword in the interest of the party, stating that the party was fragmented warning that the party cannot be victorious if it goes into the election a fragmented house.
While the Minister for Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige heads the Governorship Campaign Committee as chairman with the APC National Auditor, Chief George Muoghalu as his deputy, a former Secretary to the Anambra State government (SSG), Prince OsitaEzenwa was appointed the Director- General of the Campaign Organisation.
