Ahead of the upcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra state, Oseloka Obaze has on Monday, emerged winner of the state’s primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Oseloka Obaze has emerged winner of the governorship primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State, Channels TV reports.
Obaze, a former Secretary to the Anambra State Government, polled a total of 672 votes on Monday to defeat two other aspirants.
His closest rival, Alex Obi-Ogbolu, scored 190 votes while the third candidate, Ifeanyi Ubah, polled 94 votes.
Channels Television gathered 958 party delegates participated in the election.
Six aspirants had indicated interest to battle for the Anambra PDP governorship ticket, but three others – Stella Oduah, John Emeka and Linda Ikpeazu – dropped before the process began.
Earlier before the election, some of the aspirants alleged that the list of delegates to participate in the election had been hijacked.
They, however, called on the PDP Delegate Appeal Panel led by Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State to look into the matter.
Meanwhile, Obaze won the PDP ticket 24 hours after Tony Nwoye emerged winner of the governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
Nwoye, a member of the House of Representatives, had scored 2,146 votes to defeat his nearest rival, Senator Andy Ubah who got 931 votes.
The results were announced on Sunday by the Chief Returning Officer, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State.
Eleven aspirants contested for the Anambra APC governorship ticket at the Professor Dora Akunyili Women Development Center in Awka, the state capital.
