One time Special Adviser to Governor Willie Obiano, Chief Tommy Okoli, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of weekend guber poll.
Okoli, who is former governorship aspirant under the ruling party in the state, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), announced his defection at a PDP in rally on Thursday in Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government, Anambra State.
He also declared his support for the PDP candidate, Valentine Ozigbo and his running mate, Mrs Azuka Enemo in the election.
“I have decided to endorse the ticket of PDP with Mr Valentine Ozigbo and Azuka Enemuo as governorship candidate and running mate respectively to win the Nov. 6 election in Anambra State”.
According to him, he is throwing his weight behind Ozigbo, having x-rayed all the candidates and finding PDP most qualified for the task of “redeeming” Anambra.
According to him, he arrived at the decision after he had consulted widely the people of his constituency, who totally supported his decision to decamp to PDP.
He promised to use all his resources to support their ticket.
“I will use all the resources, contacts and enormous goodwill available to me to support their ticket”, he said.
