It was black Friday for the APC gubernatorial candidate,Tony Nwoye and his men when they learnt that Anambraians have unanimously passed a death knell on their party the APC as a northern oligarchy party with a mission to Islamize and colonize eastern Nigeria by all means.
According to reliable sources from the campaign office of Tony Nwoye, he is visibly confused and Panic-striken. The APC gubernatorial candidate who is currently abandoned to his fate by Abuja Cabals is hobnobbing with Peter Obi.
Few days ago, Engr. Joe Igbokwe a prominent member of APC of Anambra origin who reigns as the APC mouth piece in Lagos had admitted that APC is not interested in winning Anambra Guber election but strategizing for the bigger picture in 2019. He opined that APC could not release funds to foot the outrageous Campaign bills advanced by Nwoye " You see, we have no date with history in Anambra, APC cannot afford to waste resources on Tony Nwoye because we have not recovered from Senator Chris Ngige's serial failures in the state, in the past elections. We are not interested in winning Anambra Guber election, but mobilizing for the bigger picture, 2019 is the real deal. Chief Obiano has done well in Anambra, and we in APC are waiting to welcome him to our great party after his victory on November 18. Anambra is important to us and we will make sure we win Chief Obiano over to our party, he is a true progressive, his likes should not be seen playing local politics in that village union meeting called APGA. We will take Chief Obiano and bury the APGA once and for all. Mark my words." he blasted.
On the sideline, Tony Nwoye was allegedly told point blank by APC National Leader Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu that he should not expect funding from him as previous incursions made in Anambra by APC have never yielded any positive results. He however, appreciated Chief Author Eze who is brainwashed into sponsoring Anambra APC, though considered an uncalculated political risk. Also, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu allegedly made startling revelations of the rejection of the APC in eastern Nigerian due to the antagonizing policies of the Buhari led government towards the east.
To make matter worse, the APC candidate who visited Tinubu to commiserate with him over the lost of his Son, was told how Ndi-igbo have endorsed Governor Willie Obiano for second term. He was shown the list of traditional rulers and opinions leaders who have openly endorsed the Governor. The source claimed that some of his most trusted aides wept uncontrollably as he relayed his disappointment with the party he is riding on.
The people have thrown their weight behind APGA and Chief Willie Obiano who they say have shown he can be trusted. They equally took a swipe at former Governor Peter Obi who they claimed has proved not to be a principled politician but pursuing personal interests.
According to our source, in the coming days, the APC will technically reduce her campaign programmes due to paucity of funds while Tony Nwoye is making advances at Peter Obi to allow some of his foot soldiers to work with the PDP.
According to APC Anambra Publicity Secretary Arch. Okeilo " We understand the position of ndi Anambra and how allergic they have been to our party APC, we have done our best trying to make them see reasons why they should accept and support our governorship candidate but from all indications, Anambra is not yet ready for APC. To this end we have elected to pitch tents with Peter Obi, and only recently signed an MOU in case they make it to Agu Awka, seriously PDP is running behind APGA, and we will assist in pushing Obaze to victory on the appointed time " he said.
The campaign team of Tony Nwoye are already feeling the effect of the wrong move of their candidate as their hotels bills running into millions are yet to be paid while they are yet to receive the daily stipends. These days, they idle away on the streets of Awka, running in and out of 'ogogoro' joints to keep the morale high.
