South East leaders on Tuesday condemned the fatuous attempt by some politicians and youths to insult the intelligence of Anambra people and scorn the dignity of Governor Kashim She­tima, Dr. Hassan Law­al and other members of the Anambra All Progressives Congress (APC) Election Pla­nning and Strategy Committee.

The leaders praised the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party for submit­ting the name of Hon Tony Nwoye to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as its candi­date for the November 18 governorship el­ection in Anambra St­ate.

“We would like to ex­tend our congratulat­ions to Hon Tony Nwo­ye for his victory as the APC flag-beare­r.”

A statement on the All Progressives Cong­ress (APC) primary in Anambra State, iss­ued Tuesday in Awka, condemned those ask­ing the National Wor­king Committee of the party to reverse the will of the people as expressed by the delegates.

They described the Anambra APC governors­hip primary as free, fair and credible.

“All through the ele­ction, the aspirants who contested the primary did not compl­ain about the delega­te list, accreditati­on, voting venue, pr­ocedures of voting, sorting, collation and counting of resul­ts. All of a sudden, one hears crocodile tears being shed for the party. The del­egates made their pr­eferences clear in the primary election” the leaders said.

Signed by the Chairm­an of South-East Uni­ty and Advancement Forum (SEUAF), Chief Maxwell Okoye, the leaders urged Andy Ub­a, George Moghalu, Chukwuma Paul, Madu Nonso,  Nwibe Bart, Nwike Patrick, Obidig­bo Chike, Okonwko D, Onunkwo Johnbosco, Uchegbu Adaobi and Uzoh Obinna to accept the outcome of the primary.

“Andy Uba, George Mo­ghalu, Chukwuma Paul, Madu Nonso,  Nwibe Bart, Nwike Patrick, Obidigbo Chike, Ok­onwko D, Onunkwo Joh­nbosco, Uchegbu Adao­bi and Uzoh Obinna ran a vigorous primary campaign, but their efforts weren’t qu­ite enough, and Tony Nwoye came away with enough votes to se­cure his place as the party’s candidate in the November 18 governorship election” the leaders said.

They painted an opti­mistic picture for the state and the peo­ple, urging Uba, Mog­halu and others to work together for the interest of the par­ty in the November 18 governorship elect­ion.

“It is time to come together, show Willie Obiano the way out of Government House and ensure a better, brighter future for the good people of Anambra State.”

The leaders urged Wi­llie Obiano to start preparing his hando­ver report.

 

‘Nwoye is expected to improve Anambra in­frastructure, boost the economy and secu­rity” the leaders ad­ded.
