Ahead of the 2017 governorship election in Anambra State, there are indications that former PDP guber candidate is set to pitch tent with the All Progressives Congress.
Addressing stakeholders from Anambra East and Anambra West in his country home at Nsugbe in Anambra East local government area during an empowerment grant to them, former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) guber candidate in Anambra State, Tony Nwoye, is set to pitch tent with the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ahead of the 2017 governorship election in Anambra State, Nwonye is said to be consulting some top members of the party ahead of his political movement, adding that he would soon declare officially for APC.
According to him, many people in the state were already tired in PDP, stressing that their best alternative is APC, which, he added, is striving to correct the mistakes of the past federal administration.
He said: “I am no longer satisfied with what is happening in PDP. I no longer have anything to do with the party and I will soon officially declare for APC. I won’t force my followers to follow me, but they are free to join me in the movement to APC because politics is a matter of choice.”
Nwoye said he is very confident that President Muhammadu Buhari would transform Nigeria, adding that what the president needs is the support of all Nigerians.
He said: “President Buhari means well for this country and he needs to be given a chance to execute his programmes for the people. My position on this has nothing to do with political affiliation.”
