Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Bukola Saraki and governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are expected to storm Onitsha, Anambra State, Friday for the official commencement of the party’s governorship candidate, Dr Tony Nwoye’s campaign for the November 18 governorship election.
This was disclosed by the Deputy Director General, Tony Nwoye Campaign Organisation, Hon. Azuka Okwuosa, while speaking at a press briefing organised to declare its preparation for the campaign.
He said the vice-president had already indicated interest, adding that some of the governors were already being expected in Anambra ahead of the campaign on Friday.
Okwuosa also stated that arrangements were on to mobilise all indigenes of Anambra in and outside the state for the campaign which will take place at All Saints Cathedral Church field in Onitsha.
“The flag-off will signal the final death of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and PDP in the state. As I am speaking with you now, we are already awaiting for about five APC governors in the state and more are being expected. Our vice-president will be arriving later in the
day today,” he said.
He revealed that many notable members of other political parties who are willing to join the APC in the state will be received at the campaign.
