Anambr - Mr Tony Nwoye, a former
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman in Anambra, has said that PDP remains
the only way forward for national transformation and progress.
Nwoye spoke in Mmiata Anam in Anambra West Local Government
Area, near Onitsha, Anambra, during a grassroots political rally, organised by
Oduah Campaign Organisation.
The rally, which was tagged: "100 Per Cent Vote for PDP’’,
was part of activities to sensitise Anambra West people to vote en mass for the
PDP in the forthcoming general elections.
Nwoye said that the achievements of the Transformation
Agenda of the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan had already made
PDP a household choice among Nigerians.
"PDP is the only way for national transformation and
progress since its people-oriented programmes touch even people at the
grassroots like our people here in Orum-Etiti.

"This laudable reach and touch has made PDP, which is the
largest party in Africa, the only viable and household choice among Nigerians.
"Other bigwigs and political giants of other parties in the country have to
switch allegiance and membership to the PDP.
"Even our own brother, former Gov. Peter Obi, who was
formerly the foremost APGA chieftain and national leader, saw this unending
progressiveness of the PDP.
"He had no other choice than to leave APGA with thousands
of faithful to PDP.
"Likewise other progressive and well-meaning Nigerians have
continued to join the movement train of the PDP all over the country for their
political future,’’ he said.
NAN reports that Nwoye was also PDP’s governorship candidate
in Anambra in 2013.
He said that Jonathan was instrumental to the success of Obi
and by extension APGA-led government in Anambra.
"And this is on record that cannot be denied by any
Anambrarian,’’ he said.
Nwoye, however, urged the people of Anambra West Local
Government Area to make sure that none of their members voted for any other
party other than the PDP in the elections.
"The umbrella with the PDP inscription is the logo, so do
not let anyone confuse you with any other logo; continue thumb printing on all
umbrella logos to the end,’’ he said.
On Anambra North Senatorial Zone election, Nwoye said that
God had chosen Princess Stella Oduah to bring development to the zone; which
had been neglected for a very long time.
"We needed more roads to open up this zone as well as major
link roads tarred as it is found in other zones in this state.
"We also need more public schools, vocational training
centres and empowerment for our farmers and fishermen and women.
"And there is no doubt that Oduah, our own "ada" (daughter), has got the right exposure, connections and self-will to bring us
all these when elected as our senator come Feb. 14,’’ he added.
The rally, which attracted people from seven communities in
the area, had more than 6,000 people in attendance.
