Anambra election: APC panel begins Nwoye probe

The All Progressives Congress has started the probe of the winner of the ticket for the Anambra governorship election, Tony Nwoye.

This followed a petition written by Senator Andy Uba who was one of the contestants in the primaries.

Uba called for a probe on the result of the primary election.

Nwoye appeared before the Appeal Panel in Abuja on Monday.

Nwoye told journalists after his appearance that he was asked about some individuals whom they described as student union leaders who allegedly beat up delegates during the primaries.

Nwoye said, “It (the allegation) was not true. No single member of NANS or former students was part of the primary election. All the delegates that voted were statutorily the delegates expected to vote. And this is a primary election that was adjudged the best in the history of Nigeria and the partisan politics in the country.

“There was no room for manipulation, nobody was intimidated to vote and no evidence of inducing voters with money.”

On whether he thinks the panel may nulify his victory, Nwoye said, “I’m not God but I know these are party men and women. I told them that at this point in time, the Anambra people have spoken as far as the party ticket of the APC is concerned.

“That mandate I think by the special grace of God should be left alone. It is not about Tony Nwoye but about these people who suffered all the night, I felt for them, I pity them.”

As to whether he has reached out to other aspirants who contested against him, he said all the aspirants except Senator Andy Uba were on the same page with him.

“Andy Uba is the only aspirant who refused to talk to me. I called him, I sent text to him, I even got to his house but he refused to open gate for me. For the other aspirants I have met with all of them.”
