I am no longer interested in contesting this election- Nwoye

A governorship aspirant of PDP, Tony Nwoye, has dropped his bid to contest for the party’s ticket in the coming governorship election in Anambra state.

Nwoye announced his withdrawal shortly before the PDP primary election began on Saturday, June 26, on the grounds of disenfranchisement of over 94% of delegates.

He explained that the reason for stepping down from the race was due to recent developments in the PDP within the last 36 hours which should be of grave concern to every true democrat. While instructing his supporters to vote for any aspirant of their choice, the influential politician enjoins them to understand this painful decision which he believes is the right course of action at this time.
