INEC lists Soludo as APGA candidate for Anambra guber

165

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has published a revised list of candidates for the Anambra governorship election.

According to the commission, Soludo’s reenlistment was as a result of a court order served on it.

In the list released on Thursday, the commission replaced Michael Umeoji with Chukwuma Soludo as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

INEC, however, still excluded the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the list of cleared candidates for the poll.

In the list published on July 16, INEC had excluded the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), while Michael Umeoji was listed as the candidate for APGA.

According to the National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC, Festus Okoye in a statement said INEC had met on Thursday and deliberated on a number of issues, including the nomination of candidates for the Anambra Governorship election holding on 6th November 2021.

“The commission was served with the judgement of the Court of Appeal (Kano Division) which set aside the judgement of the High Court of Jigawa State on the leadership of APGA and the nomination of its candidates for the Anambra governorship election,” the statement reads.

Okoye added that the final list of candidates will be published on October 7, 2021.
