Nwobodo to APC: Don’t dare cancel Anambra primaries

From Iheanacho Nwosu, Abuja

Former governor of old Anambra State, Mr. Jim Nwobodo, has cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to contemplate cancelling the “transparent and credible” APC Governorship Primary. His warning came on the heels of tension that followed the submission of a report by an appeal committee set up by the APC national leadership. 

Nwobodo said : “That election was transparent, free and fair and everybody saw  it on television from start to finish and hence no one should dare to nullify that election” Nwobodo said in a telephone interview with journalists. 

The former governor’s remark re-echoed his position which he made public the day the election result was announced by Governor Shettima on live television, August 27 in Awka, Anambra State. 

Nwobodo had in a widely circulated message he personally signed said he had monitored every process of the primary election and from his experience, the August 26 APC primary was the most transparent in the history of Anambra State.

“I watched with keen interest the live transmission of the 2017 All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Primary for Anambra State, where Dr. Tony Nwoye was declared as the winner with a total of 2,146 votes.“I  wish to congratulate the National Chairman and National Working Committee for making this possible. I also congratulate the Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, and his Committee for conducting a free, credible and rancour-free primary in the state,” Nwobodo said.      

time any political party would conduct such a transparent and rancour free primary in the state” Nwobodo said.
