Meanwhile, the Dr Tony Nwoye campaign in the Anambra North Senatorial Campaign has dismissed as ridiculous the assertion that he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC over alleged financial crimes.
The campaign in a statement made available to . said that only one candidate in the Anambra North Senate election has a case with the EFCC. The Campaign mentioned the person so involved as the incumbent senator and former minister of aviation, Senator Stella Oduah.
“Our constituents know where this is coming from, the very woman who has sought to spread mud on Dr Nwoye on account of his grassroots appeal and popularity.
“Ndi Anambra and indeed, the electorate in Anambra North know that there is one person who has been facing trial and running from party to party to escape her date with the law.
“Senator Stella Oduah has her date with the courts on February 13, 2023, and shortly after she has her date with Ndi Anambra North.”
