1 month ago Dammylink 0
As the race to Anambra gubernatorial race keeps gathering momentum, nk fewer than 30 aspirants are expected to participate in today’s primaries of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) where the sole candidate of both parties for the November 6, 2021, governorship election in Anambra State will emerge.
While 16 aspirants that include three women will slug it in the PDP, 14 others will gun for the ticket of the APC.
Two candidates will emerge from the process to join Prof. Charles Soludo, who, last Wednesday, picked the ticket of the ruling All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
The contest in the PDP and APC will further narrow down the crowded aspiration for the number one seat in the state.
However, the PDP aspirants are going into today’s primary with their fate hanging in the balance as a result of the credibility challenge being faced by the Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu executive conducting the process.
The ruling party in the state, All Grand Progressive Alliance (APGA) on its own has picked former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Charles Soludo earlier in the week.
