The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra State, Tony Nwoye, has accused former President Goodluck Jonathan of having sold him out to Governor Willie Obiano during the last governorship election in the state.
Nwoye, who represents Anambra East/West Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, made the allegation on Wednesday when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
“Yes Jonathan sold me out, which he later apologised anyway,” he claimed. “I lost the election before because the then President Jonathan gave all the support to them – to Peter Obi who installed Obiano and that was why they kept me in court.”
“His men assisted people that I contested primaries with, and they kept me in court; I only campaigned for less than 10 days,” he added.
