The Independent National Electoral Commission has released the names of governorship and deputy governorship candidates for the Anambra governorship election.
In the list, the name of former governor of Central Bank and candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance APGA, Professor Charles Soludo and that of his deputy were missing.
Instead they were replaced by Chukwuma Michael Umeoji and Orogbu Obiageli Lilian as governorship and deputy governorship candidates.
Meanwhile, the names of the candidates of the People’s Democratic Party were completely omitted on the list. While no reason was given for replacing Soludo’s name, those of the PDP candidates were dropped as a result of court cases.
