The Prodigal Episode: YES, I MADE A MISTAKE – Tony Nwaka

Just as the dust was beginning to settle down over his exit from PDP and as his political fame and name was quickly fading off, APC new found love, Dr Felix Tony Nwaka haven been rattled by his conscience as confessed, has made a U-turn in his decision to abandon the Okowa government.

Here is what Deltans and indeed, the Facebook community woke up to see on March 23, 2018 barely 20 days after his widely announced decision.


I must first apologize to my PDP family who, all these years, provided the platform for my political ascension. There is no doubt that I took my grievances beyond permissible limits. I shouldn’t have left the party for a minute. I pray that I find forgiveness in the hearts of our teeming party loyalists, many of whom have always held me in high esteem. My special apologies go to His Excellency, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa and the state leadership of the party, who must have been terribly embarrassed by my indiscretion. I shall duly explore the formal channels for a remediation of this misjudgment.

At the same time, I also seek the understanding of many members of the APC, some of whom had opened their arms to welcome me to their fold. I am truly sorry for the unintended confusion. Rest assured that my decision to remain with my original political family has nothing to do with the general acceptability or otherwise of the APC. Of course I am not in a position to determine that. It is for the Nigerian masses to judge.

My decision is purely a product of my conscience and deeper reflection. I honestly cannot imagine myself in the media or at the campaign ground speaking against the PDP, a party that took me to the limelight I enjoy today. Also, although I still have not attended any APC meeting, I am convinced I will feel completely out of place in their midst.

Yes, PDP may have its faults. Yes, I may have my frustrations with the party. But it remains the only political family I know. I cannot extricate myself from the failures and successes of PDP. Honor and integrity demand that I not only identify with the party when the going is good for me, but also remain with her in my moments of distress.

For my many followers who are truly desirous that we seek alternative routes to political fulfilment, I ask for temperance and fortitude. No condition lasts forever. I believe that the seeming discomfort of today could eventuate in a glorious tomorrow. Let patience be our watchword for God is on the throne.

For my numerous Facebook followers, I crave your understanding in the circumstance. One of the lessons I have taken away from this whole experience is the need to identify the limits of social media in matters of practical politics. Accordingly, I shall henceforth restrict my social media commentaries to purely non-political topics. I hope you’ll bear with me.

Once again, I apologize to everyone that may have been offended by my actions in the last few days. I am really sorry. The truth is, no matter the yearning for better political prospects, my conscience simply would not let me walk away from PDP, a political family that has done so much for me. Any pretensions to the contrary will continually set me at war with my inner self. I cannot live a life that is not me. PDP I am and PDP I will remain.

Thank you and God bless.

Dr. Tony Nwaka.
