Tony Nwoye, APC candidate for the Anambra governorship election says he is not worried by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)’s threat to frustrate the exercise.
He said this on Friday after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja.
“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”, he said.
“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 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.
