Anambra 2021: It’s Andy Ubah for APC

The All Progressives Congress, APC, yesterday announced Sen Andy Ubah as its flag bearer in Anambra state’s November 6 governorship election.

Sen Ubah, a former aide to ex President Olusegun Obasanjo, emerged as the party’s candidate after polling 230, 201 out of 348, 490 to Johnbosco Onunkwo to the second position, the latter having polled a distant 28, 746 votes. Others include Chidozie Nwankwo 21, 281, George Moghalu 18, 596, Azuka Okwuosa 17, 189, Godwin Okonkwo 5, 907, Paul Orajiaka 4, 348, Ben Etiaba 4, 244, Ikoobasi Mokelu 3, 727, Edozie Madu 3, 636, Geoff Onyejeagbu 3, 414, Nwokafor Daniel 3, 335, Maxwell Okoye 2,540 and Kwebuike Ifeanyi 1, 466,
The emergence of the former senator representing Anambra South federal constituency as the party candidate was announced at the Golden Tulip hotel venue on early Sunday morning by Ogun state governor, who doubled as chairman of the party primary election committee, Dapo Abiodun.
…And Valentine Ozigbo for PDP
Meanwhile, immediate past president and chief executive officer, Transcorp Plc, Valentine Ozigbo, has emerged candidate-elect of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the November 6 governorship election.
Ozigbo emerged the candidate elect at the end of the party primary which took place at the Prof Dora Akunyili Women’s Development Center, Awka. His election was announced by chairman of the party’s electoral panel and Edo state deputy governor, Rt Hon Philip Shaibu.
Ozigbo polled 62 to beat his nearest rival, Dr. Obiora Okonkwo, who polled 58 votes. Senator Uche Ekwunife polled 44 votes to emerge third.
But in a dramatic fashion that underscored PDP’s intra party discord, another Sen Ugochukwu Uba emerged the party’s governorship candidate in a parallel primary held at the St Paul University, Awka.
Uba’s emergence followed the withdrawal from the race of one of the frontline contestants, Dr. Tony Nwoye. While announcing his withdrawal, the one-time chairman of the PDP in the state, Nwoye cited the disqualification of those he referred to as “duly elected ad hoc delegates of the party in the 326 electoral wards” by the party’s national working committee which he alleged, went ahead to replace them with “…handful of automatic/super delegates…”
“On Thursday, I was still actively traversing the hinterland in my last minute consultations/mop-up with the duly elected ad hoc delegates of the party in the 326 electoral wards of Anambra, ahead of the primaries slated for Saturday 26th June when I was jolted by the news of the party’s National Working Committee’s(NWC) release concerning the party’s primaries.
In the NWC release, the entire ward level executives of our party, the L.G.A executives and State executives of our party(who by our edicts are bona fide statutory delegates) and also the elected ad hoc delegates(3 from every ward), who emerged from the duly conducted delegate election of the party that held on 10th June, 2021 will no longer be voting in the primaries election. Instead, only a handful of automatic/super delegates whose names appeared in a made-up list will be deciding who flies the party’s flag at the Nov 6 governorship polls holding in the state,” Nwoye disclosed.
