Anambra gov poll: Pro-Buhari group backs Nwoye

The Buhari Support Organisation , South - East Zone, has endorsed the All Progressives Congress candidate , Tony Nwoye, for the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.

Chairman of the BSO in Enugu State, Chief Anike Nwoga, who disclosed this after the group’ s South- East Zonal meeting in Enugu on Tuesday, said Nwoye’s victory in the polls would usher Igbos into the ‘mainstream ’ of national politics.

According to Nwoga, the perceived marginalisation of the South- East cannot be addressed if Igbo continued to ‘ lament from outside the ring ’.

He said, “It is our candid view that it is high time Ndigbo returns to the mainstream of Nigerian politics – enough of lamentation and complaints of marginalization from outside the ring .

“Our ancestors admonished us that when you are not there , your yam is thrown off the fireside.

“In the same vein we cannot forget the ageless lessons we learnt from the great Zik of Africa . If Zik were to be alive, he will vote for Hon. Nwoye who has, at the National Assembly , cultivated nationwide contacts which we need at this material time for development .

“Zik will put the collective interest of Ndigbo nationwide ahead of parochial interest . ”
The Buhari Support Organisation urged other APC governorship aspirants to support Nwoye during the polls.

Condemning what it described as a campaign of calumny against the APC flagbearer, Nwoga noted that Nwoye “emerged from the only free, fair , peaceful and transparent party primaries among the three major political parties in Anambra State ahead of the polls”.

“All Progressives Grand Alliance , Peoples Democratic Party and even United Peoples Party primaries were marred by irregularities and breach of internal democracy tenets ,” Nwoga observed .
