The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State may not field a governorship candidate in Saturday’s election, a new list of candidates published by INEC indicates.
A final list for the March 9 governorship election published on the website of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC) showed that Enugu APC had no candidate.
According to INEC Secretary, Rose Oriaran-Anthony, the delisting was in obedience to court order as the party was yet to submit a fresh name after Senator Ayogu Eze was disqualified by a Federal High Court in Abuja.
In the judgment delivered by Hon. Justice I. Ekwo, the court asked INEC to recognize Barr. George Ogara as the party’s candidate. But the party, which insisted on Eze, did not submit Ogara’s name to the electoral body.
