South-East Leaders Hail Shetima, Oyegun, Others, Mobilise For Nwoye’s Victory


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.
