APC stalwart, Paschal Candle has given reasons why the party delegates to next weekend’s primary should back Dr. Tony Nwoye for the ticket saying that he helped to deepen the roots of the party in the state strengthening the party for others to perch on.
Speaking ahead of the primary, Candle said: “It is noteworthy to recall that immediately Dr. Tony Nwoye joined APC two years ago, he visited all the three Senatorial zones of the party. He reinvigorated the spirit of the party.
He emphasised on the need for unity and his readiness to work with the existing structure he met on the ground.
“Money and various gift items were given to party faithful. From that moment, APC in Anambra State began to have a human face. Those working in the party, but we’re not ready to come out openly began to have an interest in the party.
“He followed this gesture with Local Government tour for our great party. He visited all the 21 Local Government Areas of the State. Whereas in few of the LGA’s, he met no functional Party Secretariat.
“Some of the LGA’s do have their meetings at the Chairman’s house. For example in Onitsha South, Dr. Tony Nwoye gave Onitsha South APC, N1 million to look for a benefitting Party Secretariat.
“Today, Onitsha South has one of the best Secretariat in the State with standby Generator. He did the same in Anaocha, Awka North and South, Ihiala, Orumba North and South and Anambra East and West. He visited all the 326 Political Wards in the State. He first met all the 26 Executives in each of the Wards and gave them money to open functional Ward Secretariats. Today, APC has Ward Offices in all the 326 wards in the State. “Today, APC is a household name in Anambra courtesy of Dr. Tony Nwoye.”
