By John Eche
Former President of Transcorp Hotels Plc, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo has been confirmed as the substantive candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in Anambra State.
Speaking to Arise TV on Wednesday, the spokesman of the party, Kola Ologbodiyan affirmed that this came about after the party’s appeals committee dismissed the sole petition against his victory in the gubernatorial primaries conducted in Awka.
He said that following that development, a certificate of return has already been presented to Ozigbo.
The gubernatorial polls in Anambra State is being seen by pundits as essentially a three-horse race involving former Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party and Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress. Soludo is tipped by bookmakers to have an edge.
