Anambra election: INEC’ll rectify flaw on APGA candidacy – Obiano




THE gaffe by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidacy in the forthcoming Anambra gubernatorial election scheduled for November 6 will be corrected soon.

  Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, gave the assurance while fielding questions from newsmen at Anambra International Airport, Umueri, shortly on arrival from overseas, yesterday.

  According to the governor, APGA has not only nominated its candidate for the election in former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Soludo but also set machinery in motion for victory.

  Gov. Obiano, therefore, urged ndi Anambra to continue supporting him and the party to enable him not only finish stronger but also hand over to a successor with proven antecedents for success and capability for sustaining economic development templates that were put in place by his administration.

  The governor listed to the templates to include the airport which he not only expressed delight for getting the opportunity to use, after a smooth landing at exactly 11:38am, but also promised to deliver the project in record time.

  Members of Anambra State House of Assembly, led by Speaker Uche Okafor, APGA gubernatorial candidate, Prof. Charles Soludo and his running mate, Dr. Onyeka Ibezim, members of the State Executive Council, traditional rulers, among others were on hand to welcome the governor.

  It will be recalled that an Awka High Court presided over by Justice Okaa had recently ordered INEC to replace the name published as APGA governorship candidate with Soludo’s name as the party’s authentic flag bearer.
