ENUGU: APC Has No Guber Candidate As INEC Disobeys Court Order

Few days to the gubernatorial and house of Assembly elections, the All Progressives Congress, APC, has no candidate to represent it in the gubernatorial election in Enugu State.

It could be recalled that a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, had sacked Senator Ayogu Eze as the governorship candidate of the party in Enugu State.

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

But several days after the judgement, the APC National Working Committee, NWC, led by Adams Oshiomhole is yet to obey the order of the court, which had asked that Ogara’s name be submitted to the INEC.

INEC decided to remove Senator Ayogu Eze as the candidate but failed to replace it with that of Barr. George Ogara as was ordered by the court.

The final list of candidates signed by the INEC secretary, Rose Oriaran Anthony, claimed that INEC obeyed court order by leaving a blank space as the party was yet to submit a fresh name after Ayogu was sacked.
