Failing to clinch the November 6 Anambra governorship election ticket under the All Progressives Congress, Chidozie Nwankwo, has defected to the African Action Congress.

Mr Nwankwo said he defected to AAC in pursuit of his “divine project” following his inability to clinch the governor ticket under the APC

“Our mission to govern the state is a divine project. We promise to usher in a new dawn of development in the state.

“Now that we have found a new party for the realisation of the project, I call on all registered voters of the state to do the needful by voting for me.

“We are not in this race for ourselves, but to help chart a new course for our state and its people,” he said.

Mr Nwankwo called on the electorates to join him in taking the state to the next level.

“With experiences garnered in politics, it will significantly be complimented by a former Anambra House Speaker, Chinwe Nwebili, as my running mate. We would do much for the state.

“I believe that getting the fundamentals right and working in synergy will position us to win the election,” he said.
