The national secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) on Monday said it only recognizes Tony Nwoye as its flag bearer in the 16 November Anambra governorship election.
Alhaji Bamanga Tukur made this remark while receiving the report of the party’s electoral panel chaired by Governor Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State in Abuja on Monday, saying the party will recognise the primary which produced Nwoye.
Tukur enjoined all members of the party to ensure that Nwoye, a former President of National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS wins the forthcoming poll.
Nwoye and Uba emerged as candidates at parallel congresses of the party presided over by rival PDP groups in the state last Saturday.
While the primary won by Mr. Uba, was conducted by the Ejike Oguebego led factional party in the state, Toney Nwoye won the Ken Emeakayi version of the primary.
Tukur said all members of the party are expected to fully support Nwoye to win the forthcoming poll.
