Anambra Election: Nwoye May Dump PDP for APC
The November 16 governorship election in Anambra State may have further polarised the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Anambra state and at the national level as indications have emerged that the party’s governorship candidate in the election, Comrade Tony Nwoye may dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and move to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
This development is coming against the backdrop of reports that there are some nocturnal meetings between him and the All Progressive Congress party officials in the state.
A source close to Nwoye’s campaign organisation, who pleaded anonymity, disclosed that Nwoye is now on the verge of dumping the PDP for APC where he has been offered a better deal for 2015 politics.
According to Daily SUN, Nwoye may get the APC’s House of Representatives election ticket in 2015. It was gathered that Nwoye’s move to APC is a result of overtures by Senator Chris Ngige.
“Ngige had been able to convince Nwoye that he was not wanted in PDP by citing events before, during and after the November election,” he stated.
Ngige was reported to have reminded Nwoye how President Goodluck Jonathan refused to raise his hand at the rally in Awka, shortly before the election and also how the PDP national leadership had maintained a strange position from Nwoye’s on the outcome of the November 16 Anambra election.
It would be recalled that Nwoye and the leadership of the party has been at variance as concerns the conduct of the governorship election in Anambra state. While Nwoye maintained that the election was a fraud and should be cancelled for a fresh election, the leadership of the party at the national level hailed the election describing it as free and fair.
