Nigerians on Twitter have criticized the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the Anambra State gubernatorial election, Tony Nwoye, for his perceived poor performance during the Anambra State governorship debate, organized by Channels Television.
The debate featured candidates from the All Progressives Congress (APC), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA), and United Progressive Party (UPP) ahead of the November 18 gubernatorial contest.
Many Nigerians on Twitter were dissatisfied with Mr. Nwoye’s performance, describing his appearance and responses to questions as shabby.
Demola Olarewaju, who tweets with the Twitter handle @DemolaRewaju, said, “Tony Nwoye isn’t looking sharp in dressing and not much sharper in responses either. He was PDP’s candidate four years ago and now APC’s candidate. The Worst of our Past is the Best of Their Future.”

Another Twitter user with the handle @pokahunter joked that Mr. Nwoye and Godwin Ezeemo, the PPA candidate, should write the Kaduna State teachers’ test, and “if they refuse, dash them to Imo State.”
I suggest Tony Nwoye and Ezeemo be made to sit for that Kaduna teachers' test. If they refuse, dash them to Imo State. #AnambraDebates— Djangoâ¢ (@pokahunter) November 12, 2017
Nnamdi Mbonu, @presidentnm, concluded that Mr. Nwoye could only win the election if it is rigged by the APC. “From the calibre of discuss going on in this debate and the intellect shown by other candidates, if Tony Nwoye wins this election, @APCNigeria rigged it period!” he said.

Oseloka obaze and Osita chidioka are more composed and have points.......willie is jittery. No confidence. Tony Nwoye is not ready. Ezeemo is a business man— Aniebonam Ifeanyi (@AniebonamIfy) November 12, 2017
#AnambraDebates Tony Nwoye may not be an eloquent speaker but he speaks with conviction/has a grasp of what grassroots want to hear.— Juliet 'Kego (@julietkego) November 12, 2017
Ezeemo made a solid point about former SE Ministers appointees/FG failing. Chidoka had the best answer on IPOB/Agitations -very concise/structured
Tony Nwoye is far from Governor material,he should be contesting for NURTW chairman,APC could have done better— Okey-God (@Gen_sopibo89) November 13, 2017
#AnambraDecides Tony Nwoye shaa...2 Mins to state your manifesto and you use 1.50mins to greet Ndi-Anambra and introduce yourself...SMH— Uchenna (@UchennaTM) November 13, 2017
If Willie Obiano or Tony Nwoye should win this election, what we are seeing with Rochas Okorocha will be little to compare to what's coming!— Nduka Charles (@Charlieduka) November 12, 2017
