Anambra Governorship: INEC bows to pressure, shortlists Soludo as APGA candidate

Oyogist has learned that an Awka high court presised by Justice C.C. Okaa has directed INEC to publish the name of Professor Chukwuma Soludo as the candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance.

Justice Okaa ordered INEC to remove the name of Hon Chukwuma Umeoji from its list and ordered him to stop parading himself as the candidate of APGA for the November election.

Recall

Last Friday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) removed the name of Soludo from the list of candidates released for the forthcoming governorship poll.

INEC had named a certain Chukwuma Michael Umeoji as the governorship candidate for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) while Urogbu Obiageli Lilian was listed as the deputy governor.

But in a judgement on Monday, the court ordered INEC to publish Soludo’s name immediately and deal exclusively with him as APGA’s candidate.

T

he court also ordered INEC to remove the name of Umeoji and that he should stop parading himself as candidate of APGA.
