Ahead of Saturday Anambra governorship election, a Special Adviser to Gov. Willie Obiano, Chief Tommy Okoli, has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Okoli , former governorship aspirant under the ruling All Progressives Alliance (APGA), announced his defection at a rally on Thursday in Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government Area of the state.
He said he was supporting the candidature of Mr Valentine Ozigbo and his running mate, Mrs Azuka Enemo of the PDP in the election.
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.
Okoli said he had consulted widely the people of his constituency who wholly supported his decision to join the PDP.
“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.
“I will use all the resources, contacts and enormous goodwill available to me to support their ticket.

“These two people are decent, humble a d compassionate people, capable of transforming Anambra into a more prosperous and secured state, we shall all be proud of.
“I offered myself to serve as the Governor of Anambra State, but Valentine Ozigbo will equally do better by providing purposeful leadership for our people,” he said.
Okoli thanked Obiano for giving him the opportunity to serve and for the support he enjoyed while in APGA.
” I hereby withdraw my membership of APGA.
