Valentine Ozigbo

Valentine Ozigbo has been nominated as the Peoples Democratic Party's nominee for the November 6 Anambra governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The commission announced the list of candidates for the Anambra election on July 16 and August 19, with no candidate for the PDP included.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman (Information and Voter Education Committee), Festus Okoye, said the commission decided to recognize Ozigbo based on the latest Appeal Court judgment.

“The commission was served with two judgements of the Court of Appeal (Awka Judicial Division) in relation of the PDP's governorship election campaign in Anambra,” Okoye stated.

INEC has also identified Lilian Enemo as the party's Deputy Governorship candidate, according to him.

Meanwhile, INEC announced that it has reversed its plan to disperse non-sensitive materials replacements from its South-East Zonal shops in Owerri.

“The court has ordered the commission to recognize and publicize Valentine Ozigbo's candidacy for gove rnorship.”
