 The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2017 gubernatorial poll in Anambra State, Dr Tony Nwoye, on Tuesday said that the appointment of Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) from the South-East will help to market APC as a political party in the geo-political region.

He explained that such move would give the people of the area a sense of belonging.

According to him, the President was at liberty to make any appointment as he deemed fit, noting that persons with capacity to sell the party in the geo-political zone should be considered for such appointment.

Nwoye made the statement during the launch of his 2019 Free Medical Outreach at Nsugbe in Anambra East Local Government Area of the state which benefited no fewer than 700 indigent people of the area.

He said: “We deserve the post of Secretary of Government of the Federation or the deputy senate president. The bane of APC in Anambra State and South East in general was lack of altruistic leaders.”

Nwoye, who is currently representing Anambra East and West in the House of Representatives, maintained that the party performed abysmally low during the elections because of that factor.

He added: “The Igbo are critical stakeholders in the Nigeria project. And knowing Mr. President he will not fail to give this to us. He is a man with a large heart.

“He would not say because our people did not vote for him, that he will not give us what is due to us. If we get SGF, it will help to market APC in this part of the country.

“Our party is not moving forward in Anambra because we, the leaders are selfish and self-centred. Good leadership begets good following.

“How can someone call himself a political leader and in an election he cannot deliver his polling booth to his party?

“In all the elections in 2019, APC came last. This calls for sober reflection. How can we not be proud that we are APC members?”

Nwoye wondered the essence of belonging to a political party when election cannot be won in that party.

“I want to help rebuild APC because I want to run for election in the party,” he said.
