Anambra Guber Election: PDP Disowns Andy Uba

Anambra Guber Election: PDP Disowns Andy Uba
  The Peoples Democratic Party has announced that its candidate for the November 16 Anambra governorship election is Tony Nwoye and not Andy Uba.
Messrs Nwoye and Uba emerged as candidates at parallel congresses of the party on Saturday in Awka, the Anambra State capital.
The PDP national chairman, Bamanga Tukur, stated the party’s position in Abuja on Monday while receiving the report of the party’s electoral panel chaired by Governor Ibrahim Shema of Katsina. The panel conducted the primary won by Mr. Nwoye.
The other primary, won by Mr. Uba, a serving senator, was conducted by the parallel chairman of the Anambra chapter of the PDP, Ejike Oguebeo. Another person, Ken Emeakayi, is the factional chairman of Anambra PDP recognised by the national secretariat.
Mr. Oguebeo is, however, recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission as the Anambra PDP chairman.


  1. PDP wants to sell to Ngige. I LAUGH!!! Ogadi ndigbo ka film when Ngige and ACN start their agenda for Anambra State. Ndigbo be wise! Let us choose a candidate with capacity to deliver not a candidate that has signed too many agreements with various war lords. Anambra people I ask....are we not tired of these God fathers? Let men run on the basis of what they can do....men be men.
