The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released the names of Governorship candidates for the forthcoming election in Anambra State with name of ex Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof Charles Soludo, candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) missing and replaced with Chukwuma Michael Umeoji and Orogbu Obiageli as the governorship and deputy governorship candidates of the party.

 

The governorship election in the state is scheduled to hold on November 6, 2021.

 

In a statement signed and released by the National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee, Barr Festus Okoye, INEC left the columns of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) citing court order for reasons for accommodating or dropping the candidates on the list.

 

The electoral commission, however, cleared Emmanuel Andy Uba and Johnbosco Okechukwu Anaedobe as the governorship and deputy governorship candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) despite the controversy and court order against his emergence from the APC primaries.
