The presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr Sam Nwanti, has joined the All Progressives Congress, APC ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Sam Nwanti, an International detective, dropped his presidential candidature on the platform of the Labour Party to join the APC.
He made this known during the weekend in a terse statement issued to journalists via email by his publicist, Emeh ThankGod.
Nwanti revealed that the decision to step down his ambition was based on the need to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption as well as efforts to get the country working again.
The statement quoted him as saying
“I withdraw from contesting for the presidential race on the platform of Labour party and back to All Progressives Congress APC.
“I am back to APC to support President Buhari for his second term bid because he needs our support to get things aright once again.
“I will help All Progressives Congress and the Buhari-led administration fight corruption and as the only detective who is contesting in 2019, it may split the support of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
The detective from Mbieri, in the Mbaitoli Council Area of Imo State, however, maintained that he will immediately commence preparations for the 2023 race for the office of the president.
