The All Progressives Congress (APC), has cleared all the 12 aspirants seeking to contest the November governorship election in Anambra.
The Chairman of the APC screening panel, Agboola Ajayi, on Saturday declared all 12 aspirants eligible to contest the governorship primary which is set to hold on August 19 in the state.
The twelve aspirants cleared are: Chukwuma Paul, Madu Nonso, Moghalu George, Nwibe Bart, Nwike Patrick, Nwoye Tony, Obidigbo Chike, Okonwko D, Onunkwo Johnbosco, Andy Uba, Uchegbu Adaobi, and Uzoh Obinna.
One of the aspirants, Mr. Uba, while addressing journalists after receiving his clearance certificate promised to support the party notwithstanding whether he wins the party’s ticket or not.
He said the current governor of the state “must pack his bags and go because APC must rule in Anambra.”
Mr. Uba was elected senator on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but left the party during its leadership crisis.
