The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has officially listed Valentine Ozigboas the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Anambra governorship election.
The businessman had won the party’s primary election in June 2021, but his claim was contested by Ugochukwu Uba, a former senator, who won in a parallel primary.
An initial ruling of an FCT High Court that suspended INEC from recognizing anyone as the party’s candidate was recently overturned by the Court of Appeal.
