The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on July 2021 published Chukwuma Umeoji’s name in place of that of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo but has now replaced the former with the later.
In a press release by the commission and signed BG the commissioner, voter education & publicity, Barr. Festus Okoye, INEC said that after its executive committee meeting, it was unanimously resolved that the name of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo and Dr. Onyekachikwu Gilbert Ibezim be published as the governorship & deputy governorship candidates of APGA respectively.
The commission has also removed Chukwuma Umeoji and Irogbu’s name from its portal as candidates of APGA.
It would be recalled that Court of Appeal, Kano, on Wednesday August 10, 2021 entered judgement in favor of Dr. Victor Ike Oye as APGA National Chairman and Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo as its governorship candidates.
This was against the ruling of Justice V.C Isiguzo of the Owerri High court who urged INEC not to evade but comply with the orders of the court declaring Umeoji as APGA’s candidate.
With the latest development, APGA will now fire on all cylinders to mobilize the people of Anambra State to win the November 6, 2021 governorship election, which is a sacred duty it owes the people.
