INEC Excludes APC Candidate From Enugu Governorship Election

486h
The All Progressives Congress has no candidate for Saturday's governorship election in Enugu State.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) may not participate in the March 9 governorship election in Enugu State.

A look on the final list for the poll, published by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC), reveals that Enugu APC has no candidate.

INEC said it was in obedience to court order as the party has yet to submit a new name after Ayogu Eze was sacked.

In the 330-page final list of candidates, Enugu occupies pages 100 to 111, with the APC having “None” in provision for candidate.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had on February 5 sacked Senator Ayogu Eze as the governorship candidate of the party in Enugu.

In the judgment delivered by Hon. Justice I. Ekwo of the Federal High Court 5, the court asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to recognize Barr. George Ogara as the candidate.

However, the APC National Working Committee (NWC), which earlier declared that Ayogu was still the candidate known to the party was yet to obey the order of the court, which had asked that Ogara’s name be submitted to INEC.
