See list here.
Recall that just few days ago, some APGA Aide were sacked for supporting Hon, Chukwuma Umeoji
In a decision that will shape political activities in the state, the electoral body recognised a member representing Aguata Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Chuma Umeoji, as the party’s duly nominated candidate for the Anamra 2021 Governorship Election and the Dean of Faculty of Management, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Prof. Lillian Orogbu, as the duly nominated deputy governorship candidate for APGA in the election.
With the announcement, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Charles Soludo, put forward by another faction of the party as its candidate is no longer in the race.
It is noteworthy that this is the third time Soludo’s ambition to govern the state will be crashing before him and his sponsors.
With the fate of Oye decided alongside that of Soludo, the electoral body has affirmed Jude Okeke as the authentic APGA Chairman in obedience to two court judgements.
Expectedly, the development has led to a major political realignment in the state ahead of the November election.
