The African Democratic Congress (ADC) has chosen a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia, as its presidential candidate for the 2019 election.
The party’s National Working Committee declared Mailafia the winner of its presidential primary election on Sunday night.
Obadiah polled 2,860 votes against Mrs Saidat Odofin, who polled 1,310.
The National Chairman of the party, Chief Ralphs Nwosu, said that “the conduct of the primaries, which was free of vote-buying has proven the position of ADC as a model sustainable political party.
“Obadiah emerged through a free and fair election.”
Nwosu urged Nigerians to support the ADC and its candidates in the general elections.
