Some stakeholders in Anambra State have approached the Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Dr Tony Nwoye to vie for the 2025 governorship poll in the state, THE RAZOR NEWSPAPER can authoritatively report…..CONTINUE READING
If Nwoye accedes to the stakeholders’ pressure, he would contest the poll with the incumbent governor of the state, Prof Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District Chief Ifeanyi Ubah of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to our source who was in the stakeholders’ meeting, afraid that Prof Soludo’s second term in office could be dictatorial and dry, and with the manifest apathy for Ifeanyi Ubah’s APC in the state, the stakeholders had to rally round Tony Nwoye for the 2025 polls.
According to the source,”This is what is on board now. The stakeholders are asking Tony( Nwoye) to take up the challenge to salvage the state. They see him as the next hope.
“You know Tony has been on ground in Anambra politics. He had contested for the governorship of the state for about two times. He has been a member of the House of Representatives and now in the Senate. He has the experience.
“But the stakeholders are asking him to sign an agreement by way of an affidavit to do only one term; so that the political understanding and equation in the state won’t be distorted badly.
Tony Nwoye of the Labour Party (LP) is from Anambra North Senatorial District that produced the immediate past governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano.
Since 2014 there has been a gentleman’s agreement that guides zoning and rotation of governorship slot of the state according to Senatorial Districts.
For now, it is the turn of the Anambra South Senatorial District to produce the governor of the state after which the next turn will go to Anambra Central Senatorial District.
Soludo,the incumbent governor of the state is from Anambra South Senatorial District, and accordingly he has the right of first refusal from Anambra South as far as the 2025 governorship of the state is concerned.
Several calls by our correspondent to
Senator Nwoye to confirm story rang out, while our text message to him in that respect was not replied as of the time of filing the report.
