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 Sunday.
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 Representatives.
