Automatic Win For PDP In The South-East, As INEC Releases Statement, Ahead Of The Guber Elections

Barely four days to the Governorship elections, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has no approved Governorship Candidate, in Enugu State.

It could be recalled, that a Federal High Court in Abuja, had sacked Senator Ayogu Eze, as the Governorship Candidate of the party, in Enugu State.

In the judgment delivered by Hon. Justice I. Ekwo, of the Federal High Court 5, the court asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to recognise George Ogara as the Candidate.

However, several days after the judgement, it was gathered that the APC National Working Committee, NWC, is yet to obey the order of the court, which had asked that Ogara’s name be submitted to INEC.

Following the development, the Commission has now removed the name of the party’s Candidate, in its final list for the March 9 Governorship elections.

A check on INEC’s final list as published on its website, showed that Enugu State APC has no Governorship Candidate.

The list signed by Rose Oriaran-Anthony, Secretary, INEC, noted that it was in obedience of the court order, as the APC was yet to submit a fresh name, after Ayogu was sacked.

In the 330-page final list of Candidates, Enugu State occupied pages 100 to 111, with the APC having ‘NONE’ in the provision for Candidates.

Attached is the page where APC appeared on the list.
