Buhari to hit streets of Anambra for APC

Mohammed Abubakar, Bauchi state governor, says President Muhammadu Buhari will attend the final governorship campaign of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra state.
The governorship election is scheduled for November 18.
The Bauchi governor disclosed this while speaking with journalists after meeting with Buhari and Tony Nwoye, the party’s governorship candidate in the state, on Friday.
Abubakar said he presented Nwoye to Buhari as the “father of the nation”.
“I am the chairman of the national campaign council of the APC for the Anambra governorship election that is taking place on 18th of November this year. We have had our primaries and we have settled all the appeals, we have done reconciliation,” he said.
“It is, therefore, it is time to present to the father of the nation, the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the candidate of the APC in Anambra state, Tony Nwoye.
“The president has received us very well and has promised us that Isha Allah he will personally grace the grand finale of the campaign in Anambra state.”
On his part, Nwoye expressed confidence in winning the governorship election.
He said no one would be allowed to rig the election.
“As you know, I am not God but based on the parameters and the indices of the Anambra political terrain and based on the campaigns that we have done so far, I am confident that by God’s grace because God gives power, that we are going to win,” he said.
“In the last election, I campaigned for only 11 days, I was kept in court for some time. They accused me of not paying my tax on time. But this time around, I have more than two months to campaign. We have activated our structures, I have met all the stakeholders. This time around, it is going to be one man, one vote. We are not going to allow anybody to rig us out. Peoples votes will count.”
Commenting on IPOB, Nwoye said: “We are not afraid of the threat. Our youths are unemployed, people are wailing and crying. These are the symptoms of what you are seeing now.”
“Our people are seeing reasons why there should be elections. Some of them who may have been brainwashed, we are engaging them to see reasons why they should allow people to elect people whom they want to lead them.”
