We are not afraid of IPOB’s threat – Nwoye

Mr Tony Nwoye, APC’s candidate in the Anambra governorship race, says his party is sensitising youths on the need to participate in the election slated for Nov. 18.

Nwoye told State House correspondents on Friday in Abuja that his political party was not worried by  Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s threat to frustrate the election.

The APC candidate, who was earlier presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by Bauchi governor Mohammed Abubakar, who is the Chairman, National Campaign Council of the APC for the Anambra governorship election, urged the electorate to ignore the threat.

“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, are being engaged to see reasons why they should allow people to elect leaders of their choice,” he said.

He promised to run a transparent government that would focus on fighting poverty, if elected, and accused the incumbent government of siphoning monies meant for development.

Nwoye also promised to pay special attention to agriculture, education and other key sectors that would create jobs and engage youths in meaningful ventures.
