A group, which identifies itself as Concerned Anambra APC Youths has tasked the All Progressives Congress, APC governorship candidate, Dr. Tony Nwoye, to allow the Appeals Committee hearing the petition filed against his victory at the recent party primaries run its full course.
The group in a statement issued by its president, Comrade Nonso Ojukwu, said the petition filed by Senator Andy Uba against Nwoye’s emergence was credible, saying Senator Uba had the greater weight to defeat the incumbent administration.
The statement came in the face of the petition filed by Senator Uba against the declaration by the Governor Kashim Shettima-led panel that Dr. Nwoye won the primaries conducted last month. In the petition, Senator Uba alleged that Dr. Nwoye imported students who acted as thugs, damaged vehicles at the venue of the primaries and drove away delegates and voted in the place of the authentic delegates.
“It is the constitutional right of every citizen to explore legal and legitimate means to seek redress against perceived wrongful acts. Senator Andy Uba, rather than resort to anarchy and chaos, chose legal and legitimate avenues to seek redress against a perceived wrong.
“It is the duty of an Appeal Committee, properly and legitimately constituted, according to the constitution of the party, to review the case in question and pronounce a verdict, guided by Law and justice. “He had expressed confidence in the Committee. Why the sudden volte face? In the absence of malicious and mischievous motivation, he should remain calm and trust in the ability of his own party to do what is right.”
“APC does not intend to remove Governor Obiano through fraud and therefore, the party cannot, endorse any candidate who emerges through fraud. Nwoye should allow the Appeal Committee to perform its duties and desist from doing or saying things that would discredit the integrity of the party.”
