Chidozie Nwankwo, candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in Anambra State governorship election has stepped down for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) flagbearer, Valentine Ozigbo.

The endorsement was announced Friday night by Ozigbo’s media team barely 24 hours before the election.

Nwankwo pledged the support of his campaign organisation and associates to Ozigbo and prayed for his success on Saturday.

“We hereby collapse our campaign structures, the Kingdom Care Foundation structure and all the Pentecostal structures supporting our candidacy in this election to support the election of Mr Valentine Ozigbo of the PDP.”
