APC Gubernatorial aspirant, Dr Tony Nwoye, has called on all contestants at the forthcoming elections in Anambra State to come together in one unity and that all attempts to brand his part an Hausa party would be futile.
The medical doctor who spoke at the inauguration of his campaign committee, accused the APGA of rigging in the election, stating that his party would come out successful while he emerges the second APC governor in the South-East.
He said, “APGA feels they will rig the election but in this election there will be no rigging. APGA and others campaign against APC labelling it a Hausa party are deceiving themselves because all the contestants in this election are Anambra people”.
The APC candidate, urged all Anambrians and its electoral body to join hands to vote the party, so as to sanitize the state, further encouraging togetherness in the elections.
The five former aspirations who came in support of Dr Nwoye are identified as Chief George Moghalu, John Bosco, Bart Nwibe, Nonso Madu and Paul Chidinma.
One of the aspirants, advised all aggrieved members to show a spirit of unity even as he told the APC candidate to engage everyone in the process.
“We have to do something urgently now. We should move into the battlefield ready to win this election. When the result of our party primary election was announced and Tony Nwoye was declared winner I took it that it was the handiwork of God to bring him into the governorship race.”
Another aspirant, Mr. John Bosco equally appealed to party members to work as one family to be able to defeat their foes in the electoral battle.
All the aspirants present at the meeting were appointed leaders who would work tirelessly to ensure victory for the party.
Dr. Nwoye, a medical doctor, polled 2,146 votes to beat his nearest challenger, Senator Andy Uba, who scored 931 votes. APC national auditor, Chief George Moghalu got the endorsement of 525 delegates while Barth Nwibe polled 414 votes.
Nwoye, became the latest candidate following the emergence of Governor Willie Obiano as the candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Osita Chidoka as the candidate of the United Progressive Party (UPP), and Chief Godwin Ezeemo as candidate of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA).
