The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has published the list and personal particulars of candidates and their running mates for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.
In the list published on Friday, the electoral umpire, in obedience to orders of court, dropped the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, and that of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Professor Chukwuma Soludo.
The commission, instead, named Chukwuma Michael Umeoji as the substantive candidate of APGA.
While it named Ifeanyi Patrick Ubah as the candidate of the YPP, it also named Dr Emmanuel Andy Nnamdi Uba as that of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of its Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye in a statement, said INEC had met the previous day and, among other things, considered the list/personal particulars of candidates nominated by the various political parties for the Anambra State governorship election scheduled to hold on November 6.
