I Left PDP Because Of Impunity, Says APC’s Nwoye

The governorship candidate of the
All Progressives Congress, Mr Tony
Nwoye, says he left the Peoples
Democratic Party because of the
impunity orchestrated by members
of the party and allowed by former
President Goodluck Jonathan.
Mr Nwoye said this during the
Anambra State governorship debate
organised by Channels Television on
He said the problem started after he
won the ticket of the party for the
2013 governorship election and
assured voters in Anambra that he
is a loyal party man who had no
choice than to leave the PDP.
“The PDP, then presided over by the
former President, supervised and
ensured that Tony Nwoye would not
be a candidate. I had to battle
through the court,” he said.
According to him, despite the lack of
support in that election, he
remained loyal to the party.
However, the party was bent on
frustrating him as it also refused to
allow his inauguration after he
subsequently won a House of
“They sabotaged me but I still
remained in the party, a loyal party
man. This was a party I served as
financial secretary, a party I served
as a state chairman. (Under me)
PDP won the entire state House of
Assembly (seats), the entire National
Assembly (seats) except one seat,
and even (won) the governorship,”
“After the whole thing was done, I
still remained steadfast with the
PDP; a party (under which) I won
House of Reps (election), but they
refused to swear me in, a party that
jeopardised me and supported APGA
another party.”
While he was willing to put all that
aside, the failure of the PDP to hold
state congresses he considered
transparent proved to be the final
“In 2015, August, I said ‘let us do
free and fair congresses. Let
Anambra people decides who will
lead them. Somebody, somewhere in
Abuja, my friend Olisa Metuh said
‘No’. They will stay in Abuja and
write congress results,” Mr Nwoye
“He would not allow people to
determine who leads them. He
would not allow Ekwueme who
formed this party (the people where
he comes from) to determine who
will lead this party. That was why I
left; impunity, impunity, impunity.”
Mr Nwoye insisted that regardless of
all that happened he remains “a
man of honour and integrity.
